It looks like there will be tough competition to find a spot in the playing five of the Los Angeles Lakers, as directed by Lakers coach Darvin Ham. NBA stars Russell Westbrook, Dennis Schroder, and Patrick Beverley will compete for a place in the line-up. However, there might be a chance of Russell getting benched. In contrast, analyst Chris Broussard talked on ‘The Odd Couple’ podcast, saying that he doesn’t think Westbrook will agree to this.

Chris Broussard said, “I just don’t know if he’ll be capable [come off the bench]. After you’ve been an icon, one of the best players of this generation and one of the best players ever, and you still physically can kind of do what you’re used to doing for the most part.” He added, “What is he? 50x the player Patrick Beverley is? 30x the player Dennis Schroder is? And he’s gonna come off the bench behind them?”

When he was drafted into the side, Russell had made his intentions clear in a conference that he would play the role assigned by the management to him. He would give in whatever it takes to win a championship. He mentioned, “I’m here to make the game easier for LeBron James … there’s many ways I can impact the game off the ball and have been working on.”

Things are yet to patch up between Russell Westbrook and the Lakers?

There are rumors that a storm is brewing between Westbrook and the lakers. Russell responded bluntly on the Lakers media day when the reporters asked whether the lakers wanted him here. He said, “I mean, whether they want me here or not doesn’t really matter, honestly,” Westbrook said on Monday. “My job is to be professional, show up to work like I’ve always done.” The Lakers have been trying to trade off Westbrook and his $47 million salary for this season after last year’s disastrous first year with the franchise. But they haven’t still found a team for him.

Westbrook tried to normalize the situation between him and the lakers. He said, “I mean, you all have jobs — sometimes people at our jobs don’t like us or don’t want us there, as you guys can probably attest to, on any level [of] job across the world. He added, “As a professional, and as a working man, I have to do my job and do it the best way I know how to be able to support and take care of my family. And that’s what I will do.”
