Russell Westbrook is still under the pressure of being blamed for the Lakers’ loss. The 2016-17 NBA season MVP was 4 out of 20 from the field. Though the Lakers point guard had a triple-double during the game, he still failed a lot of good attempts. Russell was again not able to provide the necessary aid to LeBron James and his teammate.
It looked like the LA Lakers were ready for a comeback in the fourth quarter as LeBron James was the leader from the front. They railed from a twenty-point gap and then tied the game at 115 on the board. But unfortunately the Nets center, Nic Claxton threw a long alley-oop over LeBron James with 40.7 seconds left on the final clock taking his team to the win.
LeBron is 36 years old is been playing at the best he could to let his team the Lakers for the win. He’s been carrying all of the burdens alone as the four-time NBA champion is averaging at 27.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 6.5 assists per game this season.
The acquisition of Russell Westbrook is still on a debt to the Lakers franchise as the player has not performed that well as they wished for. It seems to be a misfit on the Lakers roster, as Russell Westbrook is currently leading the league in turnovers.
Shannon Sharpe is heavily disappointed with the Lakers point guard Russell Westbrook in response to his miserable game this NBA season
In a discussion on the “Undisputed” Shannon Sharpe revealed his true feeling about Russell Westbrook and his degrading performance, as he said, “Of all the contending teams only one, only one that is Russell Westbrook from the Lakers, this is a 75th-anniversary team player and only one.
He has convinced us that the triple-double is the end of be all and because of the triple-doubles, we overlooked the turnovers. He was getting 11, 12 assists but he was 8,9 turnovers. If he’s in a bad team he’s gonna win game, what else can LeBron do the dude is shooting 51 per-cent. The biggest reason they lost, that ain’t any good.”
“Russ is like that pretty girl at rival school that makes you say if she was my girl, I’ll treat her like a queen and then when you get her, you realize why all the dudes left her,” he further used this weird analogy to explain Russ and lakers situation.
Later Shannon went on to Twitter and wrote Tweet “Russ shot 4-20, but he’ll be happy. He got a FCKING triple double and the Sun will shine tomorrow.”
Though Westbrook is been scoring a triple-double, he is highly inefficient from the outside field. Russell’s been averaging at 13 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists per game and in 37 minutes of the same, he just shot 20% from the field.
