RUSSELL WESTBROOK TO THE LAKERS??!!!

Shams just dropped this bomb near minutes after Woj had this long rant about how Montrezl Harrell was opting in to set up a Buddy Hield to the Lakers trade. So this is it. We got ourselves an ol' fashioned source off between the young gun and the ol' gun slinger. Personally? I'm rooting for Shams. Mostly because he doesn't have me blocked on Twitter dot com. But also mostly because his trade is way cooler. Get Russ back home, taking 23 shots a night, looking off LeBron and AD in crunch time. That's what I need. I don't need Buddy Hield running around wide open hitting the easiest threes of his life. 

MID-BLOG UPDATE: WOJ HAS ADMITTED DEFEAT. ALL HAIL SHAMS OUR NEW AND RIGHTFUL SOURCE OVERLORD.

Russell Westbrook and LeBron James are on the same team. Why this is the move the Lakers needed to make, I'll never understand. LeBron probably just wanted a new scapegoat to blame when the Lakers flame out this season. But boy oh boy am I thrilled right now. Especially because Bradley Beal doesn't wanna play with no damn Kyle Kuzma.
