Russell Westbrook’s Wife Nina Lets Stephen A. Smith Have It Over Criticism of Her Husband

Russell Westbrook’s wife Nina is not having it, she’s fed up with with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith. Nina took to Social Media to share her response after Stephen A. Smith said he doesn’t “give a damn” that the Washington Wizards player broke the franchise’s triple-doubles record. Westbrook scored 35 points, 21 assists, and 14 rebounds in his team’s 132-124 win against the Pacers on Monday.

“And here’s the thing about Westbrook’s big night: I don’t give a damn about any of it,” Smith said on Tuesday, per Yahoo Sports. “Because the Wizards aren’t very good. They’re not going anywhere. You’re 17-28 in the Eastern Conference for crying out loud. You’re not going anywhere, and this isn’t the first time Russell Westbrook has played on a team that has fallen short.”

Smith continued :

“If Russell Westbrook was a better 3-point shooter, could you imagine what he would’ve done? I’m here to tell you he would’ve won a championship by now.”

“So… how tiring it is to be minding your own business and have notifications pop up on your phone about people being negative and hating on your family,” Nina Westbrook wrote on her Instagram Stories in response to Smith’s commentary. “There are several things wrong with what @stephenasmith says here.”

Russell also responded to Smith’s comments:

Stephen A. is doing his job, which is clearly to troll NBA players.

The Westbrooks need to block him out, speaking out is giving him what he wants.
