Lakers Got 99 Problems

Author: Baller Chat TV

In 2021 the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers packed their team with stars. They created a super team. They were reviving the “Lake Show.” They let go of young talent like Kyle Kuzma and picked up older, all-star players like Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook. The world waited, and the Lakers didn’t live up to expectations. LeBron James even apologized for the team’s performance. One person that has stood out is Russell Westbrook, who is known as Mr. Triple Double! He struggled. He took poor shots. He had multiple turnovers.  Y’all know the rest. There was some sloppy play. The trade rumors are brewing, and I agree with Draymond Green who said you can’t blame one person for the struggle of an entire organization. That’s just crazy. I guess the countless injuries are forgotten. Nobody said anything about the personal trainer. But, that’s none of my business. Here’s what I do know: Russ was a first-round pick. He’s been MVP of the league. He’s been an all-star, assist leader, and so much more until arriving in Los Angeles. The team still lost after Westbrook scored 35 points against the Charlotte Hornets on January 28, 2022. If anything, this just shows super teams have super problems.
