Ex-Laker Montrezl Harrell takes another shot at former team

Montrezl Harrell is back on track this season with the Washington Wizards, and he can’t help but rub it in the faces of his former team.

Harrell addressed reporters Saturday and was asked why he is playing better this season than he was last season. The former Sixth Man of the Year replied with a shot at his old team, the Los Angeles Lakers, and a dose of the third person for good measure.

“Montrezl Harrell is on the floor, brother,” said Harrell, per Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington. “That’s the biggest difference.”

Harrell, 27, has indeed been a difference-maker on both ends for the Wizards this season. He is averaging 18.0 points, 9.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game as Washington has gone 6-3. Harrell has also seen 7.5 more minutes per game than he averaged with the Lakers last season.

In addition to limiting his minutes in the regular season, the Lakers benched Harrell entirely in the playoffs. Harrell has made clear that he believes they misused him, and his strong start in Washington seems to validate that.
