Russell Westbrook’s skills as a professional basketball player speak for themselves as he is a nine-time NBA All-Star and earned the NBA Most Valuable Player Award for the 2016–17 season.
Westbrook was acquired by the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this year and there were a lot of expectations from him. Unfortunately, it seems his debut did not go as expected.
