Russell Westbrook Says He Can Do Everything On The Court: “If I Need To Defend At A High Level, I Can Do That. If I Need To Score At A High Level, I Can Do That. Pass? I Can Do That. Rebound? I Can Do That. Want Me To Coach? Sh*t, I Can Do That, Too."

Russell Westbrook took his Washington Wizards to a big win over the inspired Golden State Warriors and Stephen Curry, who only scored 18 points on Russ and co. The Wizards are now 10th in the Eastern Conference, the last spot for the play-in tournament, but Westbrook isn't stopping there.

Brodie has shown his commitment to the team this campaign and he's willing to do anything Scott Brooks needs him to do to keep winning and climbing positions in the standings. After yet another big performance with the Wizards (14 points, 20 rebounds, and 10 assists), the player made it clear that he can do everything on the court, even coaching his teammates if it's necessary.

“I’m one of those players that if I need to defend at a high level, I can do that. If I need to score at a high level, I can do that. Pass? I can do that. Rebound? I can do that. Want me to coach? Sh*t, I can do that, too."

Moreover, he was asked about a very good stat about him. Russ leads the NBA in clutch FG% in the last five minutes and he wasn't even aware of that. Or that's what he pretended. He channeled one of his famous memes to reply to the question but later on said he's doing his job and he's trying to be better.

"Oh, really? Ah, that’s interesting. I didn’t know that," Westbrook said, channeling one of his most famous memes.

"Oh, I know what I do. I ain’t worried about what everybody else is thinking. The only thing about me is that it doesn’t really matter what everybody else thinks. That’s okay. I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing, keep my head straight and keep hooping. That’s all I can do," Westbrook said.

Just when everybody thought he was washed and landed in Washington to keep struggling, like the Wizards, Westbrook has shown he's not done yet, creating a big association with Bradley Beal. This team still has chances to compete in the East and if they manage to make it to the postseason, they will be a hard rival for anybody who takes the 1st or 2nd spot in the conference.
