What was the experience of Russell Westbrook with the Los Angeles Clippers like?
Before joining the Los Angeles Clippers, Russell Westbrook was a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers were not the ideal organization for Westbrook. Westbrook was a Laker from 2021-22 and the first half of 2022-23, playing alongside LeBron. The former MVP was moved to Utah Jazz at the mid-season trading mark. However, shortly thereafter, he signed with the Los Angeles Clippers after completing contract buyout.
Westbrook spoke to the media about his challenges this season. He claimed that he felt better after he had been traded by the Lakers.
Since his departure from the Lakers, the nine-time All-Star has averaged around 15,8 points per match. He also averaged 7.6 assists and 4.9 rebounds. He had a good shooting percentage, with a 35.6% three-pointer rate and a 48.9% field goal rate. It is clear that the Clippers are a better fit for the guard and he will be back next year.
