Russell Westbrook’s Brother Ray Defends Him on Social Media

The days of Love for what Russell Westbrook can do on a basketball court are over.

Now it’s all about what he can’t do. From turnovers to poor shooting, fans are starting to grow tired of the poor performances.

Of course Russell is still putting up stats, but most feel they are meaningless stats.

The Russell Westbrook hate has reached new heights this season, his first season with the Lakers.

Over the weekend, Westbrook’s brother Ray participated in a large Twitter spaces discussion, and it led to interesting arguments about what’s happening with the point guard.

“I’m a realist when it comes to basketball. Yes, he turns the ball over. Yes, he misses layups. But y’all on here really talking some straight bullshit,” Ray said. “I’m not going to let somebody come on here just to slander my brother.”

There’s plenty of time for Russ and the Lakers to turn things around.

That being said, Russ is who he is. You might as well embrace it and encourage him to continue busting his ass.

Not much good will come from constantly criticizing the man.
