“I had no choice but to choose Ben Simmons over Russell Westbrook!”: When LeBron James chose to drop his Lakers teammate in favor of the controversial 76ers star

Lakers superstar LeBron James once canned his Russell Westbrook for 76ers point guard Ben Simmons

 

Right now, if you had to ask anybody inside the Lakers organization, LeBron James and Russell Westbrook would probably be called terms like ‘inseparable’, or even ‘like peas in a pod’. However, things weren’t always this way.

Now, to be clear here, the two never really hated each other, at least not that we know of. The two players had always maintained a healthy, friendly relationship, and the Jordan Brand endorsed player is even the King’s son’s favorite player. And we’re sure that relationship has only evolved now that they are teammates.

However, no matter how close they may be today, there was once a time James was willing to sacrifice Russell Westbrook for someone else entirely.
