Former Laker Drops Big Truth Bomb on LeBron James and Russell Westbrook

LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook were supposed to be the Big 3 for the Los Angeles Lakers. Rob Pelinka traded three players to get Westbrook. It was a bad experiment. Westbrook had too many struggles and Lakers fans want him out of the team. Pelinka explored his trade options, but has yet to find a good trade partner. We had people saying that LeBron has issues with Russ.

Malik Monk watched the situation unfold. In his interview with TMZ, Monk said that the Big 3 can still work.

“They grown men. Especially when they have convos like that, it’ll work out for them,” Monk said. “They’re all great…It’s Bron, bro. He gon’ try to help every teammate he comes in contact with. So, I have nothing bad to say about him…You got to play at a level he plays at If not, you going to get surpassed. That’s why he’s so great.”

LeBron James and Russell Westbrook work on their chemistry

It seems like the situation Lakers got better earlier this offseason. Chris Haynes from Yahoo Sports reported that LeBron’s friendship with Westbrook has improved significantly.

“The Los Angeles Lakers’ Big 3 of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Russell Westbrook huddled up on a phone conversation the first weekend of NBA Summer League in Las Vegas with each expressing their commitment to one another and vowing to make it work, league sources told Yahoo Sports,” Haynes reported. “While the uncertainty of Westbrook’s future with the Lakers remains, the conversation was organized to make sure all three were on the same page as long as they’re joined together in their pursuit of a championship, sources said,” Haynes explained in his July 18 column.

Westbrook has to pay attention to his performance next season. If his struggles continue, Westbrook may not play in the NBA ever again. He is one of the better players in the NBA, but his disappointing season with the Lakers was just too much. ESPN analyst Tim Bontemps discussed this topic during an episode of Hoops Collective. Is this really Westbrook’s last season in the NBA?
