Russell Westbrook is one of the best scorers in the NBA right now, but as he takes a lot of shots every night. That’s the reason why many people tend to call him ‘WestBrick’ when he’s having a bad performance on the floor.
A bricked shot is typically known as any shot that bounces off the backboard or rim, and Russ happens to have a lot of them. This Reddit user who goes by the name ‘Dgeneratte’ recently made a kind of experiment with Brodie and all his bricks.
According to the Redditor, Russell has missed 8,627 shots during the regular season, which gives us 8,627 bricks. Why is this so important? Well, according to Dgeneratte, Westbrook could build a 1350 square foot if his brick shots were actual bricks.
Using the standard modular brick of 7 5/8" x 2 1/4", he planned for 7 bricks per sq. ft.
With the house being 1,350 sq.ft., the perimeter of the house would be approximately 154 linear feet (27′ x 50′). Multiply that by a height of 8 feet to get a total square wall footage of 1,232.
At 7 bricks per sq. ft., you'll end up using 8,624 bricks out of the total 8,627.
He did the math and even dared to share some house in Houston around 1350 Sq. Ft. for us to have a reference.
It looks like Russ can have a good career in house construction when he decides to call it quits and stop playing ball. You never know.
