Every season since Montrezl Harrell was drafted by the Houston Rockets with the No. 32 overall pick, his numbers have improved and next season the 26-year-old tall man could see his numbers could get even better thanks at his game. alongside LeBron James.
James is famous for rewarding his teammates who work tirelessly to make themselves available for a pass, and Harrell has made a career of being in the right place at the right time. That’s not to say he’s strictly a dunker – he isn’t, but he also doesn’t mind when his baskets are easy, and there’s no one in the NBA who makes their lives easier. teammates in attack than James.
This could explain why Harrell recently said Chris McGee of Spectrum SportsNet that he’s already thought of all the ways he and James are going to connect on the pitch:
“Dude, I imagine high pick and rolls, base games, all lobs, everything dude. Like I said, I’m just ready to start, man. It’s a great feeling and I’m just happy to be here.
Harrell could also enjoy playing with a big, versatile man like Anthony Davis. Harrell has played with talented players throughout his career, but he’s never played with a dominant, two-way force like Davis – mainly because there’s no one like Davis in the league.
Harrell has every reason to be excited to be a part of the winning squad and Lakers fans should be thrilled too: I’m not too often pairing the reigning sixth man of the year. with a defensive player of the year candidate and a most valuable player. candidate. Next season should be fun.
