Westbrook speaks on Timberwolves players trash talking him: “Nobody over there has done anything in this league.”
The Lakers season has been nothing but a disappointment so far this year, as the team stands in 9th place in the west holding a record 9 games under .500 at29-39. Matters didn’t seem to get much better last night either, as the Kings easily blew out the Lakers, 124-104. That isn’t the only headline from the night though…
Los Angeles Lakers guard Russell Westbrook is having the worst year of his career, receiving death threats, and taking a TON of heat right now. With that being said being trash talked by a team that has barely won 39% of their games the last three calendar years and a team that has not been that relevant since the early 2000s really didn’t help matters.
Westbrook had this to say about the Kings postgame,
“I honestly pay no mind to it. They weren’t talking to me… Nobody over there has done anything in this league… They won a game, happy for them, (I’ll) move on to the next one.”
Woah. Shots fired. But is he wrong? The Wolves have been a relatively quiet team in a small market historically, only winning one playoff game in the last 15 seasons. With a young emerging superstar in Anthony Edwards, a very good PG in D’Lo, and arguably the best shooting 7-footer in NBA history in Karl Anthony Towns obviously, these Timberwolves might just “do something” in this league.
