Dwight Howard just recently signed with the Los Angeles Lakers. After leaving the team back last season, Howard is back with the Lakers for the third time on his NBA career.

Howard recently discussed the combination of Russell Westbrook, LeBron James and Anthony Davis inside the court.

Westbrook was known to be a too ball-dominant player and pairing him with LeBron James made a lot of fans doubt the Lakers.

Howard believes that Russell Westbrook will be fine playing with LeBron and Davis. He explained that Westbrook is used to playing alongside superstars throughout his NBA Career

"I think it will work great. He's played with superstars before. He's played with KD and James (Harden), he's played with Bradley Beal, he's played with so many superstars, so I don't think that will be a problem for him. I think he has been underappreciated. I think all of us, really, have been underappreciated. But I know that we appreciate each other. We all appreciate what we each bring to the table for this team.

So I think having a guy like Russ is going to get you 15, 16, 20 points a night. He's going to get you 12 rebounds, he's going to get you 10 assists, and he's going to play 110% every single night. How can you not appreciate that? So I'm gonna tell you: I appreciate you, Russ!' And we ain't even played a game on the same team yet. But I appreciate what you do, and I think everyone in L.A. is going to appreciate it when you're holding up that trophy at the end of the season. Why not? There we go! Let's get it y'all!"
