Recent Los Angeles Lakers signing Russell Westbrook has been putting the work in the lab this offseason, posts a workout clip of himself dunking over three of his trainers.
After a hugely disappointing campaign last season, the Los Angeles Lakers have made quite a few roster changes. In a very eventful offseason, the front office even managed to add well-experienced players like Carmelo Anthony, Trevor Ariza, Dwight Howard, Wayne Ellington, Kent Bazemore, Malik Monk and Rajon Rondo on the squad, making the roster deeper and their team deadlier, not to mention older, than ever.
However, LAL’s biggest move over the past few months has been the acquisition of 2017 MVP Russell Westbrook in a blockbuster sign-and-trade deal. Behind the trio of LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook, and such an incredible supporting cast full of veterans, the Los Angeles Lakers are easily one of the strongest teams on paper, who are heavily favoured to lift the 2022 Larry O’Brien trophy.

He’s jumping through padded wiffle ball bats being held by 5’8 college students. The fact that he flexes afterwards says something more…

With a healthy Russ eager to win his first-ever title, a determined duo of Bron and Davis looking for their redemption, quite a few veterans wanting to prove themselves again, the 2021 Los Angeles Lakers will surely be an entertaining group of superstars to watch.
