The Los Angeles Lakers star guard Russell Westbrook realizes that there may be bumps in the road throughout the 2022-23 campaign, via Lakers Daily:

“I’m going to make mistakes,” he said. “I’m [occasionally] not going to have good games. There will be times and stretches when I don’t play well. I’ve owned that, and there were times last year that I could’ve played better, and I own that part of it. Moving into this year, I feel even more prepared than I was in years past. That’s what I’m looking forward to the most. That, right there, will get me past any struggles that come my way.”
