Russell Westbrook is one of the most dominant players in the NBA. Despite his individual success, he is yet to win a championship. With that goal in mind, he joined the Los Angeles Lakers.
The 32-year-old star point guard averaged triple-double in four of his thirteen seasons in the league — that’s what his legacy is thus far, according to sports analyst Chris Broussard. However, winning a championship with the Lakers would erase any negatives from his career, he says.
“His legacy is going to be Mr. Triple-Double. But if he has a championship with it now there’s nothing you could say, nothing negative at all, Joy. He will be a completely made man,” Broussard said on First Things First.
Broussard also said in order for Westbrook to change his legacy from ‘Mr. Triple-Double’ he would have to win multiple rings in his prime with the Lakers.
