I like how they are treating Russ in the media.

The consistent message is he’s supposed be a team player with role of defense first and on offense be at the corner 3 or dunker’s spot.

They are basically sending the message Russ is welcome if he follows what is asked and Russ having the ego he does…it’s eating at him. Basically, they made it where he wants out because Russ wants to be Russ lol.

I would love for the Westbrook experiment to work but the reality is.. it’s not lol even his agent told the public that Westbrook isn’t willing to accept and adapt to the Lakers which is why there is talk that the Lakers have a deadline to trade Westbrook, the marriage is over.

It takes two to tango and no one wants Westbrook.

Agree that was part of why they went to Ham over Vogel. Vogel didn't have the personality to coach through the media and let the media know WB would need to play a certain way. He's not cut that way. Ham has already been very much a talker in the media in the sense where he's reflecting what he wants from WB.

For the Lakers the issue remains:

47M of salary is tied into WB. They are better off with WB than without. They have not enough firepower with AD/Bron + vet min role guys. Not unless Reaves, THT and a guy like Nunn come in and have big seasons.

Lets see how it plays out but if we had depth or 2-3 starters that could hold their own around AD/Bron, we could use the do it our way or bench strategy. I am not sure we have the depth to go with this attitude and WB knows it.
