Anthony Davis was talking in a post-match interview where he was asked about Russell Westbrook. He quoted, “I just told him honestly, before I walked in here, I said, ‘The way you are playing, the way you handling everything, it’s tremendous. The way he played in Minnesota, the way he played tonight, it’s unbelievable. To be a player of his caliber, and asked to come off the bench, that’s truly a guy who’s doing whatever his team asks.”

Anthony went on to state that he told Russ to keep doing things how he wanted and that he is unbelievable at doing something which he once takes up. He also stated that he is proud of Russ for stepping up to his role. Brodie has even sacrificed his starting place in the line-up for the team’s best interests.

NBA player Russell showed what he is made of as he powered the Los Angeles Lakers to their first win of the season. Russ was assigned a new role which demanded him to come in when the team needed him. He didn’t dishearten anyone and gave a power-packed performance. The guard helped the Lakers break their losing streak. He finished with 18 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists in 31 minutes he spent on the court while coming off the bench.

The ‘Big 3’ of the Lakers finally stepped up to take their team over the line. Many said that Russ was not fit to be with the Lakers, but it was just a matter of some time to figure out a potential role for him. And guess what? Maybe they have succeeded at doing it. NBA Twitter spammed social media with positive reactions to Russ’ gameplay.

According to ESPN, Russ’ new role for the team ended his streak of 1,007 straight starting appearances which is said to be the third-highest active in the league behind Chris Paul and LeBron James. It might be intended that this role can be a permanent one for him now onwards. This was the best way Westbrook could embrace to shut down his critics.
