Russell Westbrook took a break from the struggles of being Los Angeles Laker recently. The basketball star spent a day off at the Happiest Place on Earth. His wife and kids shared in the good times.

The Lakers have desperately needed a few days off. The timing of their long weekend couldn’t have come better. They last played the Clippers on Friday night.

Russell, his wife Nine, and their kids visited the Anaheim amusement park together on Sunday. They rode the rides, ate some Churros, and took in the sights. Westbrook was spotted checking out the new Web Slingers Spider-Man attraction at the California park.

Russell Westbrook has been enjoying playing in his hometown despite the team’s struggles. As the team deals with nagging injuries to star LeBron James and a lack of chemistry, a day at Disneyland might be just what the doctor ordered. You couldn’t tell from the fun he had that his team was down in the dumps.


The Lakers return to action tomorrow night against their bitter rivals, the Boston Celtics. They’re currently sitting at 12-12. They still have plenty of time to turn things around.

LeBron James has been taking in his sons high school basketball games. He was dealing with an abdominal strain that kept him out. That was before the fiasco where he received a false positive result on a COVID test. Maybe the time off has the Lakers refreshed and renewed as they continue to try and establish an identity.

Do you think some time off will have Russell Westbrook playing with a renewed spirit? Let us know in the comments!
