Russell Westbrook is one of the most polarizing figures in the NBA today. An absolutely astonishing talent, Westbrook's record in the NBA is what his detractors use to undermine his legacy.
Westbrook has been in the NBA for over a decade now and has put up some of the most ridiculous numbers in the history of the league. Westbrook can truly lay claim to the title of the best show in the NBA.
'Brodie' is most known for his ability to put up triple-doubles. Westbrook historically averaged a triple-double during the 2016-17 NBA season, a feat that helped him earn the MVP award for that season. Since then, he has averaged a triple-double season on multiple occasions and has led the league in triple-doubles for 5 of the last 10 years.
And now, Westbrook is getting a new documentary. Showtime Basketball released the trailer for Westbrook's new documentary 'Passion Play' that is set to come out just 4 days before the start of the NBA season on October 15th.
The documentary will take an in-depth look at Westbrook's career, and even has soundbites from analysts like Skip Bayless who have gone out of their way to criticize him for the style of play he has. Westbrook's journey in the NBA will be chronicled through the documentary and will give fans a personal perspective on it.
The biggest concern surrounding Russell Westbrook is his playoff record over the last few years. Ever since the departure of Kevin Durant, Westbrook has not managed to get past the 2nd round of the NBA playoffs.
Many fans believe that Westbrook is not capable of playing winning basketball. His poor playoff record suggests that he will forever be a great player in the regular season, but he will not find championship success. But now that he is on the Lakers, he has the best chance of his career to prove all the doubters wrong.
