“$44M just to stand and rebuild”: Fans react to Russell Westbrook, who made minimal effort on the defensive side against the Spurs


Russell Westbrook He made a comeback in the headlines for catching a video clip of him making minimal effort on the defensive side while standing and watching his team defend against the San Antonio Spurs. LeBron James and Anthony Davis signed Russell Westbrook to the Los Angeles Lakers this summer and has since become the most criticized player of the season. Some of these criticisms targeting his individual performance are justified because he often holds himself back and cannot support the team on either side.

Recently, the San Antonio Spurs hosted the Los Angeles Lakers at the AT&T Center. After a close-knit and head-to-head encounter between the two. The San Antonio Spurs outperformed the Los Angeles Lakers less than LeBron James. The final box score stands at 117-110. The supporting roster that lacked LeBron James’s MVP caliber performance did a good job, but being understaffed puts him on the losing side. Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook performed better individually on their side compared to last games. Currently, the Los Angeles Lakers are in ninth place in the western conference with a record of 28 wins and 36 losses in .438 as they have only won two of their last ten games.
