Video: Russell Westbrook Loving Being On The Los Angeles Lakers

The NBA's official Twitter account shared a video of Russell Westbrook sporting his new Lakers jersey for NBA Media Day. In it, one can easily tell that the 32-year-old point guard is ecstatic to be joining Los Angeles.

The feelings are certainly mutual. Westbrook is going to be a great addition for the Lakers once the regular season officially starts. In 65 games last season with the Washington Wizards, he averaged 22.2 PPG, 11.5 rebounds and 11.7 assists. With him now joining a team that already has LeBron James and Anthony Davis, it would not be surprising to see his offensive totals go up, too. 

Westbrook also has had a lot of success in the league over his career. He most notably was named the NBA's MVP in 2017. He also led the entire league in scoring twice, had the most assists twice and has played in nine All-Star games. He also made the All-NBA First Team in 2016 and 2017.

It will be intriguing to see what the veteran provides for the Lakers this season. Yet, for now, we certainly can tell he is happy.
