There are 30 teams in the NBA, but the Los Angeles Lakers are arguably the best franchise in the league. They are tied for the most NBA titles in history, treat their players well, and are a huge market.
Keeping all that in mind, it’s the dream of many athletes to wear the purple and gold uniform at least once in their careers. Montrezl Harrell was given this opportunity in the offseason. Harrell is a sensational player who is one of the best sixth-men in the league.
Although the Lakers were crowned champions last season, they still had room for improvement. Bringing in Harrell meant they will have a better bench, which is important in close games during the playoffs.
So far, Harrell has been amazing for the team. He is averaging a solid 14.2 points per game coming off the bench. Harrell is a reliable scoring option in the paint and it will certainly aid the team come playoff time.
Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel praises Montrezl Harrell
Tonight, the LA Lakers continued their winning streak after defeating the Golden State Warriors. While their offense was amazing, they did a better job on the defensive end of the court. The Lakers held the Warriors to just 97 points! So kudos to their defense in this game.
After the sensational win, coach Frank Vogel was impressed with Harrell on the defensive end of the floor. Vogel praised him by saying:
“He’s been a great culture fit with our group… He’s very well-liked in our locker room… and he really commits to trying to get it right.”

Harrell is one of the most vocal players in the league. This helps him in motivating his teammates if they are out of touch at any point in the game. Moreover, the aggression also disrupts the rhythm of his opponents.
