Los Angeles Lakers: Russell Westbrook Developing Bond With LA

WRITTEN BY Raju Kumar Yadav

The Los Angeles Laker's relationship with Russell Westbrook has been unpredictable.

Many in L.A. believed the purple and gold could win a championship after trading for the 2017 MVP in the summer of 2021. 

That hasn't worked out, and many hold Westbrook responsible for his failure to gel with LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the other two stars of Los Angeles.

Westbrook had a nightmare debut season with the Laker despite the fact that it was more the front office's fault than his own.

Fans would routinely jeer him during home games, and his friendship with his teammates was tumultuous.

Many believed that Westbrook would not stay with the Laker team this season, but as of right now, his performance has been like night and day.

According to ESPN NBA analyst Dave McMenamin, he has embraced the sixth-man position and is succeeding in it.

He also appears to be developing relationships with his present teammates.
