The Los Angeles Lakers made an enormous statement when they brought in Montrezl Harrell from their city rivals, the LA Clippers. The sixth man of the year will provide a much needed tenacity to this Lakers side.

Harrell is known for his crazy jewelery collection. One Lakers star is certainly keen about this; Anthony Davis. Davis and Harrell have an ongoing friendly banter.

Yesterday, before they were on their way to Pheonix, AD seemed shocked by seeing the jewelery Harrell had worn while boarding the plane.

This not the first time AD has taunted Harrell for the absurd amount of jewelery he wears. After their first preseason win against the Clippers, Davis went crazy after seeing Harrell’s drip.

Harrell on the other hand hasn’t stayed behind though. In a recent Instagram story, Trezz trolled Davis. Watch the hilarious video.

‘The Brow’ is set to return in the preseason game against the Suns. Both LeBron and Davis haven’t made their preseason debuts till now, despite the Lakers facing an opposition like Clippers twice.

Where will Harrell play in the Lakers?

Montrezl Harrell last season played as the center for the LA Clippers. The Clippers had a lack of quality big men in the team, forcing Harrell to play a bigger role in the team. Trezz was more than ready for the role averaging 18.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.1 blocks.

In the Lakers things will be different for the 26-year-old. The champions already have enough size in their lineup with both Anthony Davis and Marc Gasol 6’11 tall.

Harrell here will also come off of the bench but will be given the duty to grab the offensive rebounds. This will especially be necessary when Gasol is there on the floor.

Gasol is renowned for his passing ability but lacks the athleticism of their previous center, Dwight Howard. With Harrell along with Gasol, the Lakers’ second team will be much better in many departments.

Trezz can also come in as a number five with Davis shifting himself to a four. This frontcourt will be outright scary given how impressive both the players are defensively.

The Lakers side on paper looks like a much better fit for Harrell than that of Clippers. If they click, the Lakers will be unstoppable.
