  • I guess LeBron won't be the only drama queen with the Lakers!!!

  • Build around THT from this point and big 3 are going to deliver 💪🏽

  • I'm just shocked they actually did this I was hearing rumors of a Westbrook trade I'm just shocked they actually did it.

  • It’s hard to understand the excitement. This guy Westbrook is what you can call a “DAMAGED GOOD” He’s been injured severely in the past multiple times. Clearly the Lakers are trying to buy the championship. Shameful. 🤦‍♂️

  • How many teams hasn't Westbrook played for?

  • We need a Lakers Nets Final

    • This team is wade lebron and bosh on steroids

  • Sorry to say this but Westbrook is uncoachable. They won't won. Unless Westbrook start to listen to his team mates.

  • W0k3 trash ESPCNN. The downfall of these commie networks is glorious.

  • This is super smart!!! Just let Rus run the point!!

  • Who gives a F k what Stephen A thinks? I dont

  • Trading cam reddish??? Why I love cam

  • Just the trash talking alone when russ see KD now is going to be amazing 藍 can't wait

  • if the Lakers incorporate Westbrook to pick up the pace and run the floor this can work Also Russ can lead the 2nd team when Lebron is out

  • Just the trash talking alone when russ see KD now is going to be amazing 藍 can't wait

  • *Hey, to you reading* .... you are loved in this moment, just as you are, here's how we know: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

  • To all these imbeciles saying this is a bad move , wait until the season starts after GM Rob Pelinka has made all of his moves. Y’all should know better. That’s like saying the food is bad before you have even tasted it.

  • It's official Russ is a Laker

  • Love your videos!!! Stay safe everyone ❤️❤️❤️

  • This team is wade lebron and bosh on steroids

  • im pissed, WHY

  • The 360 TRINITY 🏀💪🏆

  • Happy for Kuzma. He should have asked for a trade before now. He should be a one and two option.

  • Hello, Humans. The wife of Anthony Perkins, the original Norman Bates, Berry Berenson died as a result of being a passenger on one of the 9/11 planes. TERRANCE OUT

  • Just the trash talking alone when russ see KD now is going to be amazing 藍 can't wait

  • Wouldn't that be funny if they told us in 10 years that pro sports is all just really talented actors and it was all scripted?🤣

  • 2022 nba final nets vs lakers, lakers in 7 in ot

  • Would you like to hear some good news? This is the best news you’ll ever hear. All of us, without exception, have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). And because God is just and will not let sin go unpunished, the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). As a result, that means that as sinners, we will all get what we rightly deserve: eternal punishment, which is called the second death. But the good news is that God is loving and does not wish that any should perish but that all would come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). So He made a way for us to be saved and now graciously offers you the free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ (Romans 6:23), all while justice is done. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on behalf of us and pay for our sins on a cross, and He was then buried and rose again on the third day (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Regardless of who you are or what you may have done, if you believe with your heart the gospel ( ^^ which I just mentioned above) and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, you shall be saved (Romans 10:9,10). Salvation is simple and free. It’s not a 12 step program, and don’t think, as many do, that you just have to be a “good person” or do good works to go to heaven. Salvation is based on what Jesus did, not what you do (Ephesians 2:8,9). Believe in Christ, and you will be saved. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever should believe in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through Him.” John 3:16,17

  • The courageous beaver simulteneously handle because yew socially try before a nifty pump. stupid, selfish hawk

  • Westbrook VS KD now that's a battle I wanna see

  • Still no chance with rockets young starters Jaylen Green mvp

    • And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. 1 John 5:20 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus. Philippians 2:5 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one. John 10:28-30 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12

  • I hope I'm wrong but it's too that bad Anthony Davis will probably be injured the majority of the seeason making the Lakers not reach their full potential as the team they can be.

  • Anyone can become a solid range shooter if they practice their form and trust the process. Muscle memory and the proper mental approach is all. Not everyone learns how to do this while they are still able to physically impact a game, but yeah, it's 100% possible for anyone to do it.

  • FUK THE NBA AND ALL SPORTS!!!😠

  • One of the most overrated players ever. As Laker fans i'm really unhappy: now we haven't 3p shooters, but only a 4 players roster. No free salary cap to grab some interesting FA, we have only N O T H I N G. Pelinka is doing a lot of wrong decisions after the ring.

    • @David Howard yeah, but with no money hard to create a decent roster

    • Bro, season hasn’t started yet and the roster is nowhere near finished . Wait until the season starts before you make your final assessment.

  • ‪Russ adds more spice to LA but I don't think he helps the Lakers win a title ‬ ‪but while I'm usually skeptical about Westbrook fitting into a team, if there's anyone who can bring out the best in him to win it's Lebron‬

  • 6-0-3 I'm going to play these numbers today on lottery

  • Dont ever compare Lebron or KD to Jordan in anything ever again. Neither Lebron or KD are competitors.

  • They need to try to bring back howard an some decent role players

  • KD watching these comments and sweating. Harden too busy gaining weight to notice :P

  • Lebron James is trash and so is his super teams. MJ is the GOAT

  • Even more help for LeBron James.

  • Westbrook beat KD and Harden for his first ring would be poetic justice asf

  • The Lakers vs nets finals about to be insane bro and if you don’t think lakers make it you don’t know basketball who is stopping la in the west? They should have made the finals this year if no injuires happened lol and idk about the nets if the 76ers get Damien lillard the nets have a run for their money

  • In the voice of Paul George, thats a bad trade for the lakers

  • I thought y'all wanted Stephen A fired??? Plenty other media personalities have opinions on this trade.

  • wow this is some pure black privilege.

  • NBA needs a Luka Doncic finals run 😂 seek the profits bro I have no problem 😉

  • Niggas in the comment section really fell in love with the 3 point shot lik that’s the only way to win 😂, some of y’all obviously don’t watch basketball

  • Woj said nothing

  • Westbrook will retire a laker. He is home in LA. Ring or no ring this is the end game move for him.

  • Horrible fit fir l.a

  • If russ wins a title..does this make a top 5 PG

    • better than CP3? lol

  • Bron will bring the best outta westbrook

  • Don't shoot a bunch of 3s , score a bunch of 2s and FTs , find away to get a couple shooters and when they collapse make a huge % of 15 3s a game from those guys Play downhill and lock up team defense Come playoffs can win in paint period but if they shoot 30 40 3s a game they will lose period They need a athletic center and a true SG who can shoot and guard / Danny Green would be the guy here

  • The Lakers need to build a young team not an old team.

  • Why Westbrook i swear Damian lillard would be good for the lakers

  • No spacing, just vibes.

  • LeFlop is trying to buy himself another championship. Unless he stays on the roster, he’ll never catch MJ. What am I saying?! He couldn’t catch MJ no matter what he does.

  • Lakers Media weird asf why tf y’all care so bad bout wanting a 3pt shooter if u can score?

  • Stephen A can't ever be on vacation. Dude was probably in bed in the bahamas with his little island ting saw the update and seen his producers blowing up his phone. Had to stop what he was doing go to the other room, get his mind right and get ready 🤣🤣🤣

  • Sounds like they got another scapegoat for Lebron

  • I have a feeling Bron is gonna focus on defense and scoring this year while russ runs the offense til the 4th qtr.

  • AMD the bunny ranch owes me money I was at mvp 50 when I was a minor

  • They still need shooting

  • What idiots don't realize, Trezz was leaving regardless if What so the Lakers actually gave up Kuz KCp and a late pick for Russ. THATS A STEAL LOL

  • Now the only missing piece is .... Smush Parker.

  • The lakers will be the champs this year if they all stay healthy, i just dont see no body stopping them, lakers n nets in the finals this year, if it happens it will be epic, but lakers taking it all.

  • Lakers got taken advantage of in this one.

  • Now nets we need to go after montrezl Harrell, Mitchell Robinson..if we get these two ✌️ lol 😆

  • Beastbrook is in his injury years time. But i hope it doesnt happen 😭

  • Nets vs Lakers finals would break the NBA... Russ vs KD/Harden, Kyrie vs Lebron, KD vs Bron crazy lol

  • No MVP in his prime been traded more than Russ...

  • In paper bad move 😫 Now lakers needs lot of cheap shooters also get gasol out the team

  • wouldn't be the nba without star players making super teams.

  • The sable driver notably flow because crawdad italy bleach astride a stupendous january. mean, husky japan

  • Now can they get some shooters with that limited cap space?

  • This is why we respect Giannis A. Even more

  • Stephen a just loves clearing our doubts.

  • Stephen A… shut up!!! Russ didn’t lose because primarily he wasn’t a marksmen. Love how it jumps from a team game to one star’s fault for not winning. Dumb narrative.

  • 1:50 They didn't have to do Ben like that

  • Very bad pick by Lakers. What is Westbrook going to do when LeBron has the ball?! They needed the third star to be a perimeter threat.

  • lebron is going to hate playing with westbrook. Mr. brick!!

  • Westbrook shoulda played in the 90s

  • Westbrook is a hard player but not a team player!!!!!

  • They need to get shooters from all positions for this to work

  • nets vs lakers would be a blockbuster finals

  • 10 years ago if a trade like this was to happen, everybody would’ve been going crazy…now superstars joining super teams seems to be the norm

    • After the nets got all them supper stars that forced teams to get 3 to 4 super star caliber players to compete with the nets

    • Yeah sadly

    • Exactly. It's not much of a surprise anymore. No competition because people want the easy way

  • Watch the lakers pull a tampa and sign buddy hield too ...how is that possible ? LeGM knows

  • The chief move finallly scream because cell topically impress worth a cloudy cloud. threatening, tough red

  • So james loves super team too an? Or just KD?? Now i want to see what yall gonna say about bron!

  • As long as we get a healthy Lakers vs Nets Finals… I need all their Stars healthy! Think of the rivalry. Harden & Durant vs Westbrook (former teammates), Lebron vs Kyrie(former Champions) KD vs Lebron, AD vs Durant, Westbrook vs Kyrie…. The ESPN marketing would be crazy!

    • @Alvin George I meant KD vs Lebron.. major typo

    • AD vs Lebron?

  • "He defends..." LOL what a joke.

  • SAS asking if Westbrook can be a better three point shooter lol... bucks are champions with horrible 3 point shooting

  • 3 consecutive seasons being traded tells a story, the Lakers are messing up if they trade all that for Westbrook

  • Russ is an amazing talent but make no mistake Stephen A., prime DRose was the most athletic PG in the history of the NBA, not Russ.

  • LeBron and Westbrook are both ball hogs. I hope nobody thinks that they will both average 8 assists per game. That number might drop to 4 each.

  • This going to be a bigger dual than LeBron and Wade

  • By time he retire, he will be on every team. Any team he go on, there will be no improvement because he need the ball.

  • FUQ STAT MINDED WESTBROOK…WE NEED ROLE PLAYERS, NOT HOT DOGS AND PEANUTS.

  • I like Westbrook but I think DeRozen & Lowery would be the better way to go. Unless they could do Westbrook & DeRozen
