Russell Westbrook is a player who has been subjected to a whole lot of criticism over these past few years. It always feels like Russ is being slandered in some type of way, which is disappointing to see. Overall, this slander comes from a place of disappointment. Although Russ was an incredible player in his prime, he has had a major fall-off that has been quite shocking. While on the Los Angeles Lakers, he took a lot of punishment, and that has not stopped now that he is with the Clippers.
In his first few games with the Clippers, Russ has only been able to secure one victory. It is a pretty bad sign for the Clippers who have gone from fourth in the West all the way down to eighth. In fact, the Lakers are now just two games back from overtaking them. However, there are still plenty of reasons to be excited if you are a Clippers fan. They are in the midst of building a massive new arena called the Intuit Dome. Yesterday, the players got to see the construction site in person as Steve Ballmer made an energetic speech.
Russell Westbrook In Construction Gear
Unfortunately, for Russ and the rest of his teammates, they were all forced to wear construction outfits. Overall, this is especially unfortunate for Russ as his nickname is “Westbrick.” Simply put, the image of him wearing construction gear has already become a meme. As many fans pointed out on Twitter, it almost felt like Westbrook was being set up here. Subsequently, whenever Russell Westbrook has a bad shooting night, this image will be littered all over Twitter.
Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will also be subjected to this kind of slander, so Russ shouldn’t feel too singled out here. Although, you cannot deny how truly hilarious all of this is. The Clippers are in a freefall of sorts, and this just feels like kicking someone when they are already on the ground. Let us know what you think of all this, in the comments below.
