D’Angelo Russell Is Confident Of Re-Fitting Well With LeBron James & The Lakers In His Second Run

The Los Angeles sat almost for the deadline to arrive to make a significant change in their roster. Finally, all the rumors about the trades and players cooled down. The that every LA fan wanted to witness finally took place when Russell Westbrook moved out to Utah Jazz with a three-team and an eight-player deal. And in exchange for him, the Lakers have got a young point guard D’Angelo Russell from Minnesota Timberwolves. At the same time, the Jazz has received the 34-year-old electrifying point guard. And the Timberwolves have received Mike Vonley and Nickeil Alexander-Walker from Utah.

In the process, Hollywood has developed a strong core that includes guard Malik Beasley and forwards Jarred Vanderbilt. To beat the odds and qualify for the playoffs, the Lakers will have to win most games in the remaining season. However, the time for good trades has come with LeBron James’ foot injury, which caused him last two games. Even if LA has acquired so many players, they are brought to build around their main character LeBron. And without him, the team will fall, as Anthony is also not at his full potential. And reports suggest James will stay quiet and on the sidelines until the All-star weekend.


D’Angelo Russell Wants To Be The Lakers’ Alpha

Before making the Russell Westbrook trade for Angelo Russell, the young point guard made a statement in the press. The 26-year-old said that he could gell well alongside the two superstars, LeBron and Davis, in LA. In his interview, he said that he considers himself an alpha and could easily perform better as he believes in his craft. His belief in himself and his skills is so much that he considers himself a dangerous player on the court.

As long as the season goes back, it has been a frustrating one for the Purple and Gold. They have shown signs of struggle and comeback, but it has all been in a terrible and shaky fashion. But the D’Lo’s comeback has brought back excitement in the Lakers’ fans. He was one of the fan favorites in his rookie years when he played alongside Kobe Bryant. In a brief interview, he is also seen saying he would love to play alongside Anthony and LeBron James. It is nothing short of a dream come true for the young point guard who has made a comeback to change things.

He even played the first game alongside Davis against the solid Golden State Warriors. Angelo and Davis’ partnership even led the Lakers to victory. After the game, the Brow revealed they had excellent communication and were already drawing future plays. They have even planned out how they will play once the four-time champ returns from the foot injury.
