It’s no secret that Russell Westbrook has struggled to live up to expectations with the Los Angeles Lakers this season. LeBron James and Co. are currently stuck at .500 ball and it certainly has to do with Westbrook’s lack of consistency.
Lakers fans haven’t been shy about letting Russ know how they really feel, either. But this fan took it to another level and snuck into Westbrook’s Instagram dms with this absolutely wild rap verse over Tyga’s verse in the song “Loyal.”
My God. He just spiced up Westbrook and the Lakers. It was recently revealed that Los Angeles explored trade scenarios for the veteran earlier in the season, but with his contract being so gigantic, he’s expected to stay put.
Russ is averaging just 18.7 points per game, 8.1 assists and 8.2 rebounds. The most alarming part of his struggles, however, is the careless mistakes. The triple-double machine spins the ball 4.4 times per night. Unacceptable.
Nonetheless, he said last week that he has no regrets about joining the Lakers and that he seems determined to turn things around. Anthony Davis should be back in the mix not too far down the road here and still have quite the second half of the season left. All is not lost for the Lakers or Russell Westbrook, who can still redeem themselves.
But, I have to give this fan props for a pretty sick verse.
