For Los Angeles Lakers fans, the 2021-2022 season was not anything worth bragging about. On top of that, it’s left a dark cloud over the franchise that doesn’t have many options to even make a move to better the team without letting go of its best players.

Anthony Davis missed a lot of the season due to injury and by the time he returned, it was too late to make a playoff run. But, perhaps the biggest story was Russell Westbrook’s performance since becoming a Laker. We all know Russ is a talented all-American pro player, but something kept him from delivering that talent last season.

Yoooo… watch your mouth. Don’t say anything here you wouldn’t say to my face. https://t.co/0u8nFXYLY8

Russell Westbrook reportedly will exercise his $47 million player option to return as a Laker

Sports media slandered Russell Westbrook every day on national television and only praised him one time–and that was a game-winner over Toronto . Reports suggested Westbrook certainly would not be a Laker this upcoming season, but it seems that isn’t the case anymore.

Westbrook is reportedly exercising his $47 million player option to return to the Lakers as one of the top paid players in the league, an interesting development for a team whose trying to make moves with limited pieces. Hopefully, this upcoming season, Westbrook will overcome the slander and put on a LakeShow for all of us.

Westbrook’s agent Thad Foucher of @wassbasketball is planning to file the paperwork today, sources said. Westbrook has a Wednesday deadline on his option.
