    How would you go about making the most of this situation if you were the Lakers? Comment down below!

    Also, despite this being a more "negative" video, do your best to think positively about this situation and try to be constructive! Thanks for watching 🙂

    Rion Shikder says:

    The rockets would save $99k buying out Russ over John Wall. So if they are actually thinking about buying out Wall's contract, they should certainly trade for westbrook

    Scab in a cab says:

    The Best line up is Lebron at the PG. They need to trade WB. Try to trade him to Cavs for Kevin Love and Cedi Osman to meet the salary.
    1st Option
    Lebron
    Malik
    Ariza/Stanley
    AD
    Howard
    2nd Option Small ball
    Lebron
    Nunn
    Malik
    Ariza/Stanley
    AD

    Jermie powell 7 says:

    Russ can be traded for Simmons but the lakers would have to give up more players like tht and non

    TuNnL says:

    Need to give props to JSM for the most succinct statement on Russell Westbrook I have heard yet:

    "I cannot point out even one trade that would truly benefit the other team by acquiring him. And not only because they would have to take on his large contract, and probably not even want him in return, but mainly because the Lakers do not have any good draft compensation to throw in along with him."

    Well said, and I wish people would get these simple facts through there head. Russell Westbrook is untradeable because of his $44 million contract.

    He makes even more ($47 million) next season! It's like trying to trade John Wall. 💁🏻‍♂️🏀🤦

    Jonathan Nelson says:

    Why do you talk like a gay special education teacher? Knock it the fuck off.

    John Minx says:

    I would take Russ over Ben Simmons… anyday!!! Ben is full of Drama!:( We keep Russ! And play him where he helps the Lakers! And that would be on the second team at the point!!! and play Lebron at the starting point where he led the team to the Chip and won!!!;) You play Russ where he benefits the team!

    Watts_740 says:

    Back to the og music thank goodness

    Artyy says:

    lol lakers made the same mistake as last season trading the pick instead of just drafting a solid player. we could have gotten Desmond Bane last season, try trading up to get Mitchell last draft. only acquisition that is beneficial to us are dwight and monk

    Allen says:

    Id take wall over Russ any day

    Andreas Laszakovits says:

    Westbrook is playing at the level what is expected and this is the problem ..

    Khoa Do says:

    Lakers literally dared this dude to shoot in the playoff in 2020 and they thought it was a good idea to trade for him smh…. I rather have Ben than this guy, at least with Ben, i know he would defend 1 to 5 at high level and on offense, even though he's scared to shoot, he can always score in the paint at high percentage and make high IQ plays

    BronIs TheGoat says:

    I will start a go fund me and we can easily match the money to buy him out with the support of Lakers fans
