Lakers Superstar Anthony Davis Takes Shot At Russell Westbrook After Loss
November 12, 2022
The Los Angeles Lakers lost another game and this time they failed to beat the Sacramento Kings. There’s major frustration inside the Lakers locker room. Anthony Davis couldn’t hide his disappointment and took a shot at Russell Westbrook in his postgame press conference. Sadly, the Lakers won just two games so far.
Westbrook did a decent job off the bench in the last few games, but he made big mistakes in the loss to the Kings.
“We have our moments where our IQ is very high,” Davis told the media after the loss. “We have our moments where our IQ is very low.”
Yes, he criticized Russ. This may fuel ongoing trade rumors. The Lakers have been advised to trade Westbrook for quite some time, but they struggled to find the right trade partner.
“Couple ‘my bads’ at the end of the first half, and they go on a 14-5 run,” Davis explained. “Certain moments where we can’t have ‘my bads.’ It’s good that guys are seeing their mistakes and owning them but we gotta try to limit those ‘my bads’ to 2-3 per game.”
Anthony Davis criticized Russell Westbrook, Darvin Ham voices his support
Pelinka may get rid of Westbrook at the trade deadline. Head coach Darvin Ham may not support this trade because he is a fan of his potential. The one-time NBA MVP did deliver great numbers in the loss to the Kings. He finished the night with 21 points, 11 assists, and four rebounds. Add five turnovers to these stats. Sounds bad, right? Well, Ham supports his player.
“I thought there were some unfortunate plays that he would normally make. But if I had to do it all over again, I would put him in the same situations,” Ham said. “I’ve got certain things that stick out in my mind, but without going over the film, I can’t really get into detail.”
Lakers players have to motivate each other and start winning games. Davis admits that “the energy around our locker room feels like 2-10.” So, yes, players need to hype themselves and fix the damage before it’s too late. If they don’t do something, the team will leave the playoff race sooner than expected.
