LeBron James is a fan and Russell Westbrook is on the team now? NBA Twitter reacts after seeing the stars sit on opposite ends.
The Los Angeles Lakers might be the most dysfunctional team in the NBA. From their front office to the team, the flood of negative news keeps coming.
But that’s what happens when a team is under the microscope. LeBron James was there to see his young teammates play in the summer league, as was Russell Westbrook.
But the two didn’t sit together, and it didn’t seem like it would. In fact, they were seated at opposite ends of the court. It looked like James wanted to be a fan for the night. Or is trouble brewing in heaven?

Fans speculate what’s going on in Los Angeles? Russell Westbrook and LeBron James are seated as far apart as possible.
So what’s up? We don’t know for sure. One thing we do know is that Russell Westbrook and LeBron James didn’t seem to recognize each other.
As of this writing, the game is still on, however, there are no signs that the two stars are even getting close to each other.
Fans think it’s natural. Russell was seen as part of the coaching staff, while LeBron was seen talking to Rob Pelinka and Darvin Ham.
Uhhh Russ is sitting with the team and coaching them, and LeBron just wants to be a fan for the night. What is the problem?
Russell Westbrook and LeBron James have been very good friends off the court for a very long time. It means nothing. https://t.co/wn7BwtdtHo

So what can we speculate? Well, one thing is for sure, there will be a seismic change in the team. Free agency has just begun and Kyrie Irving trade rumors have been gaining momentum.
This star behavior could be an indication of things to come. But don’t look too closely, the next thing you know is that they are working together and the two have shared it on their social media.
The fickle nature of today’s stars makes it harder to gauge their intentions. Keep an eye on this space for more.
