Westbrook was often aggressive to a fault last year, but at the same time, there were also times when he was somewhat passive, almost as if he was trying too hard to ingratiate himself with his new teammates.
But during training camp over the last several weeks, all three have decided to simply be aggressive and decisive rather than try to placate each other.
They believe it will be good for the team.
Via The Athletic:
Last season, the Lakers often saw themselves fight the shot clock after reverting to lots of one-man basketball.
But now, new head coach Darvin Ham has re-emphasized fast-break basketball and playing with pace overall.
As long as Westbrook is still a member of the team, he will have to find the right balance between aggressiveness and being under control. But he is clearly a better player when he leans towards the former.
