It’s hard to believe but a few years ago, Russell Westbrook was the MVP of the NBA. However, since leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder, Russ’ career has gone downhill.
First, he was traded to the Houston Rockets to pair up with James Harden. Fans had high hopes from the duo as they had already played together on OKC. Although the two stars had a good regular season, it all came crashing down in the postseason.
They were knocked out in the second round of the playoffs by the eventual champions, the LA Lakers. Following that meltdown, Russ demanded a trade and teamed up with Bradley Beal in Washington.
Once again, fans expected the two to finally change the fortunes of the franchise. But in the first half of the 2020-21 NBA season, they struggled for the most part. The Wizards have a record of 14-22 and are in the 12th spot in the conference.
While Beal is playing phenomenally, the same can’t be said for Russell Westbrook. Can the two stars put together a winning streak in the second half of the season? We will find out pretty soon.
Russell Westbrook reaches a sensational milestone in his career
Despite not being in his best form, Russ has still somehow managed to enter the NBA history books. He became only the third player in the league history to join the 21,000 points, 6,000 rebounds, and 7,000 assists club. The two other players are LeBron James and Oscar Robertson. This is some great company to be in without a doubt.
Westbrook believes the same as he celebrated this by posting an Instagram post with a caption:
“‘I STAND ON THE WORD OF GOD’ WHYNOT? Is the mentality. Ain’t not changed!”
