Take a look at the Why Not Zer0.6

The latest edition of Russell Westbrook’s signature streaker is the Joran Why Not Zer0.6. This upcoming edition , which reminds me of the Adidas Top Ten 2000, sports what appears to be a zippered upper;”WHY NOT” appearing amongst the letters that appear underneath the the teeth. Jumpman branding appears at the lateral heel and tongue, along with a Westbrook logo on the lateral forefoot. Underneath resides a red midsole and marbled outsole that is situated in a manner to be visually reminiscent of Adidas, “Feet You Wear” from the late…

Lebron could not take the heat for one day

Full-time scapegoat Russell Westbrook was absent the Lakers lineup with a hamstring injury. At for one night, free of their alleged anchor, did the Lakers rise to show the level of play that the Lesychophants in the media and delusional Lakers fans have been trying to convince the sport populace they have been held back from? In a word, no. The Lakers dropped to 0-4 on the season as the Denver Nuggets game them a 110-99 kick in the pants Wednesday night. Anthony Davis’ stat line looked good; had 22…

They are going to blame this loss solely on Russell Westbrook

The Lakers fell to 0-3, losing 106-104 to the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday afternoon. There are plenty of reasons that the Lakers snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, mostly stagnant, fruitless offensive possessions and non-existent defense down the stretch. However the narrative was, and will be reiterated/forced down the collective throat of basketball fans by mainstream sports media, that this play was why the Lakers lost: View this post on Instagram A post shared by Basketball News (@basketballnews) However they will say very little, if anything about this…

The Lakers are going to be terrible again this season

Last season, the media arm of Klutch Sports, led by Shannon Sharpe and Nick Wright convinced a lot of people that Russell Westbrook was one of the worst players in the Association and that he alone was the sole cause of the basketball maelstrom that was the 2021-22 Los Angeles Lakers. They conveniently ignore the fact the roster was aged, displayed at best an indifference to defense, did not shoot well, and ran no real offensive system, which was the real root causes of why the team was so awful. …

The Lakers must really hate Russell Westbrook

Granted he did himself no favors at all with his play, particularly in the first few months of the season; ceasing the diagnosis of what went wrong in Los Angeles last season by heaping all the blame on Russell Westbrook, at that point is both ham-handed and myopic. It is more nuanced than that because frankly last season Russell Westbrook was never put in a position to succeed. Taking things back to before he ever donned a Lakers gamer in an NBA game, anyone with basketball brain 1 could have…

They are already gearing up the Westbrook blame

Barring miraculous, sweeping changes to their roster, all indications are that the Los Angeles Lakers will once again be the worst pro basketball team in LA. Unlike last season the gas bags in the sports media have not to wait until the year tipped off to find a scapegoat, they are already planting those seeds in the hopes they will blossom into a Westbrook-Ham blame tree. When this season takes its inevitable nosedive, the sports media and Laker ”fans” new favorite whipping man Russell Westbrook and new head coach Darvin…

Lakers will need better offer to get Kyrie

The Kevin Durant trade request has branched off into the reinvigoration of the Russell Westbrook trade speculation, with the Nets emerging as the likely trade partner and Kyrie Irving the Lakers target. The Lakers desire to move Westbrook ( who, for a variety of reasons, they never should have acquired in the first place) is not only the worse kept secret in the NBA , but quite possibly in all of pro sports. This fact should put the Lakers on the wrong side of the leverage equation in any trade…

Russell Westbrook opts in on $47 million player option

In a move that surprised no one, the favorite whipping boy of Laker nation ,as well as the LeRichard riders in the media, Russell Westbrook opted in the $47 million player option. Westbrook was acquired last season in a deal that confounded those with a modicum of basketball knowledge , who questioned the fit and how the skillset of the three Laker star would mesh. The most optimistic ( or delusional) Lakers fans and media arm of clutch sports had the the team, at minimum in the Western Conference Finals.…

Russell Westbrook is not the main reason the Lakers stink

Criticizing Russell Westbrook is en vogue right now. Turn to nearly any national sports show and at some point and listeners will be subjected to Westbrook slander of varying degrees. The problem is not with the critical light shone upon Westbrook, per so, but the issue is the false narrative that the spets media is attempting to spin that Russell Westbrook is the anchor that is dragging the Lakers to the bottom of the Western Conference. Any and every Westbrook miscue is magnified to the highest degree, while the gaffes…

Who is really at fault that the Lakers stink

The Los Angeles Lakers , a franchise that is a paragon for excellence, a crown jewel organization not only in the NBA but around the world is now viewed as a drama-filled laughing stock. This season , the Lakers have fallen flat on their collective faces, hovering at or below .500 for most of the season. The acquisition of Russell Westbrook, who anyone with basketball brain 1 was questionable at best, has been, for a variety of reasons, been an abject failure. Anthony Davis has been playing with the intensity of…
