I really liked this article written by SI’s Lee Jenkins prior to Russell Westbrook’s record-breaking 2016-17 season. Good stuff in here on Westbrook’s loyalty, how he deals with failure, his mentality, and his fiery in-game temperament.
Just as Westbrook will have to strike a balance between carrying teammates and enabling them, he will also need to alternate tongue lashings with attaboys. “All eyes in the room are on him, where they used to be split,” Weaver says. “Russell could be the hard charger, and Kevin would go pick guys up. He needs to be a little more understanding, a little more sensitive. I think he will. I think that’s in him.”
