LeBron James gives his Lakers’ Big 3 of Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, and himself a new nickname, NBA Twitter reacts to the same
The Los Angeles Lakers have assembled a team that can either win it all or might end up losing miserably. They have traded a lot of their assets away, to focus on getting experienced veterans alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis. It all started with getting Russell Westbrook on the night of the NBA Draft.
On the Lakers media day, the newly assembled Lakers squad seemed pretty confident. They fancy their chances to go ahead and win it all this season. LeBron James even coined a new nickname for his Big 3. He called themselves the 360. While he may have said it due to the jersey numbers(Anthony Davis – 3, LeBron – 6, Russell Westbrook – 0), he surely must have had a deeper thought in play as well.

@RealSkipBayless : “Up next on Undisputed. Is LeBron trying to subliminally let Russ and AD know that he’s still the main focal point of this Laker team at age 36, soon to be 37, by putting himself in the middle of the “360” Big 3 picture to make sure all eyes are always on him?” https://t.co/zYNEMPjvoz

While it is all fun and games right now, it would be interesting to see what the 360 can accomplish in the upcoming season. We wouldn’t have to wait long though, with the first preseason game just days away.
