7-Time All-Star Sends Bold Message To Lakers’ Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook has been getting words of support from many players and seven-time All-Star Paul George is one of them. George has a big message for the Lakers veteran and Brodie better take it. It’s not like he panics or something.

George and many others believe that Westbrook is one of the best players in the NBA. Russ has been making headlines for a really long time and it seems like some people are determined to put an end to his career. Yes, his first season with the Lakers was terrible, but Brodie is an exceptional player. He did a good job in the preseason and Darvin Ham respects his potential.

NBA experts believe that Russ is on his way out. Ignoring the huddle last week was interpreted as a hint. Is Westbrook really forcing his way out of LA? George wants Westbrook to keep his sanity. George has nothing but respect for his former teammate. They played together in Oklahoma and George advised the Laker to continue doing his job.

The seven-time All-Star motivates Russell Westbrook

Westbrook had a situation with the media last season, but he was definitely willing to make things clearer for everyone. What happened on the floor?

“Pregame, I’ve been doing that since I’ve been in the league for years, man,” Westbrook said. “I think they just cut the video and obviously the internet is going to take it and run with whatever they need to run with. But, I’ve been doing the same ritual since I’ve been in the league.

“As far as the other video, I was actually talking to the coaches and they cut that video in half as well. I was talking to the coaches about a missed coverage. So, I don’t pay no mind to it, man. Honestly, I’m just trying to compete and do my job. Everything, videos, get nitpicked. You can cut any video and make anything you want out of it. It’s not up to me to be able to judge that.

“I know I’m a genuine team player. I’ve never had a problem being with my teammates, so I’m going to continue doing what I’ve been doing. … That’s been the same for me, honestly, man, through my career. I’m very used to it. And I’m very accustomed to it. That’s why I’ve just been blessed and thankful to be able to continue to play each year and keep my head down and continue competing. And whatever comes with the extra stuff, comes with it. It’s not up to me to be able to make videos and things for the internet. I just go out and do my job.”
