D'Angelo Russell among other players lands in LA at the last season's trade deadline to change things and help the team to get into the Western Conference Finals.

Still, in the postseason, Russell's performance started to fade to the point that the wans weren't happy with his game, still, he has re-signed with the team and believes they will be able to top the past season.

D-Lo was part of the latest episode of Patrick Beverley's podcast and said that for the Lakers the sky is the limit. “I have no idea. I know we got a lot of bodies though, what you said, we got a lot of bodies. So trying to give the team what it needs every night to win, I think that’s gotta be our focus."

"Whatever or however it gets done, if everybody is locked in to just giving the team what it needs that night. That night might be scoring, the next night might be eight assists, the next night might be all passes because they ran you off and you made the one more to Austin Reaves in the corner, he’s hitting. It’s gotta be the right play, right mentality type of energy for our group because anybody can do it. He can throw any five out there and get it done. But if we’re all committed to that I think the sky is the limit for the group honestly.” Said Russell.

 

The Lakers are going all-in to win next season's championship title

The key to success is very often the entire team buying into their roles and team success above all else. The Lakers have many players who could be viable rotation options, but there are only so many minutes to go around and as Russell said, they will be able to throw out any number of lineups that could deliver what the team needs.
