The Los Angeles Lakers seem to be suffering from a run of bad luck. The team has suffered yet another defeat, this time against the Celtics.
One player in particular seems to be extremely on edge regarding the same. Russell Westbrook has been bombarded with questions about him not being in sync with the rest of the team, and he is quite tired of it.
Obviously after each game, everybody asks the same question and I’m tired of giving the same answer. So, it’s the same question every game, every time we lose it’s like, “Hey how long do you think it’s going to take?”
During the post-game press conference, Russ also acknowledged that while he understand that people have high expectations from the team, and for good reason, they “haven’t really played with each other, realistically.”
Russ also explained that while he cannot answer the question of when the team will turn things around, “throughout the season there’s going to be ups, there are going to be downs.”
It is undeniable that Russ has a lot to live up to. Perhaps it would be best to just wait and watch as he gets the hang of things. Here’s hoping that things turn around for the team soon. Check out the press conference below.
