Russell Westbrook Is Playing the Victim

Los Angeles Lakers PG Russell Westbrook had his exit interview after a dismal season and predictably refused to take any responsibility for his poor performance. He claims he wasn’t put in a position to succeed when we all know the Lakers changed their entire offense to accommodate his playing style. The facts are plain to see: Westbrook just wasn’t a very good teammate and nobody should be buying his sob story.

Doug Gottlieb: “Russell Westbrook is classically playing the victim here and if you’re buying that, I have beachfront property for you, oceanfront property for you in Arizona, I just do...or in Nebraska, or in Kansas.”
