Austin Reaves has been a success story for the LA Lakers as he was undrafted but has found success with the purple and gold becoming a starting player and the third star of the team that has LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

But since his first NBA season, he often was compared with the then Warriors guard Jordan Poole who was set to be the best player of the two but time has shown that without a question, Reaves is the better player.

While Austin Reaves signed in the offseason a 56 million extension, the Warriors traded Jordan Poole to the Washington Wizards to get the veteran guard Chris Paul. The Wizards have now made a move that shows Austin is the best player of the two.

The Wizards are one of the worst teams in the NBA this season and even when Poole was set to become the second-best player of the team next to Kyle Kuzma, the guard has now been sent to the bench to have a secondary role while Reaves is front and center the third star of the purple and gold.

The Lakers fans miss Kyle Kuzma in the team after the 2020 title

One of the players that helped the team win the 2020 NBA title was Kyle Kuzma who wasn't well received by the fans back then but now they want him back after what he has shown within the Wizards.
