LeBron James Wants To Cut Ties With Russell Westbrook

LeBron James was reportedly the driving force behind the Los Angeles Lakers trading Russell Westbrook instead of pursuing Buddy Hield or DeMar DeRozan last summer. But by midseason, when it became clear that the Lakers would not be in contention for the NBA title, James and his team wanted Westbrook gone. The team reportedly turned down an offer from the Houston Rockets that would have given John Wall to Westbrook in exchange for draft compensation, which irritated James and his camp. The Way Russell Westbrook Plays Needs To Alter The four-time MVP is reportedly pushing Los Angeles to go to any length to sign Kyrie Irving, his former championship teammate on the Cleveland Cavaliers. James, according to Dave McMenamin, still wants to be free of Westbrook. If nothing else, the Lakers will be forced to trade Westbrook due to an allegedly unhealthy dynamic between him and James. It's a dynamic the team should avoid, especially as it tries to make the most of James' final season and compete for another NBA title.

Darvin Ham, head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, has issued a possible warning to Russell Westbrook.
