A lot of the blame was directed towards LeBron James for making a very hasty decision while choosing his teammates to play with. Many believed that he only picked Russell Westbrook because of his reputation and not to fill the roster requirements.

Russ on the other hand had a very bad season averaging 18.5 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 7.1 assists per game shooting 44.4% from the field. In situation when he was the only superstar on the court, he had problems helping the team close out game due to lack of athletic ability and very poor decision making. He also struggled terribly with turnovers. Anthony Davis was termed as a walking injury and Bron’s 30.0 points per game late season outburst was too late to help the team survive.

Skip Bayless has been one of the Lakers’ harshest critics. It was mainly because of him that the famous nickname “Westbrick,” came into play. Bayless has often criticized Los Angeles for not recruiting enough shooters on the team as this is an aspect none of the main stars possess. After they select Max Christie of Michigan State in the second round of the NBA Draft, Skip took to Twitter saying,

“Lakers acquired 2nd-round pick, take Michigan State’s Max Christie, who shot only 32% from 3 last season. Perfect! He’ll fit right in with LeBron and Westbrick.” Russell Westbrook did not appreciate him using the nickname again replying to him saying, “Yoooo… watch you mouth. Don’t say anything here you wouldn’t say to my face.” NFL star Jalen Ramsey also came to defend Brodie retweeting to reply saying, “The energy is NEVER the same in person! EVER! Lol.”
