LeBron James has a new star teammate and the world can’t wait to see what Russell Westbrook will bring to The Lake Show. Westbrook’s trade to the Lakers was a big boost for the team and shook up the league, and they are already getting to work.
The LA Lakers traded Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Russell Westbrook. LeBron couldn’t wait to train with his new teammate and it looks like they’re already getting to it.
King James posted an Instagram photo of the two along with a caption to let everyone know how much fun he’s already having the the new Laker. “Work with the Brodie! I agree I don’t think this will work @russwest44,” LeBron said with a smiley face emoji attached.
Over 2 million likes flooded that post in rapid fashion. Obviously, plenty of fans are very excited about this as well. Now we’ll have to see if they can redeem the Lakers’ first-round NBA Playoffs loss that they experienced last season.
