Russell Westbrook tags every Wizards player in Instagram post following 0-4 start.
He captioned the post:
"“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy,” Westbrook wrote, citing the late Dr. King."

This is exactly what Dr. King was talking about. He was a big time Bullets fan.

So what you’re saying is the Russ hate train is back
[–]Rockets AbedAbedAbedAbeeeed 85 指標 9小時前
The reason people didn’t hate him on Houston is because he had a more hated player alongside him. People actually really like Beal, so he’s getting the hate again.

Bro what are you talking about, he got a shit ton of hate in houston

He also played really fucking well for a few months. Then played shite in the playoffs and got hate.
[–]Grand Community4 51 指標 6小時前
He had that insane stretch where the Rockets were killing it and he was putting up monster numbers, then the delay and bubble came and the tides turned again. Hate for Westbrook is so dependent on how he's playing day to day it's crazy. Harden on the other hand though is just a constant hate generator.

The guy is currently sporting a 45.4 TS% and 29.7 USG% in the Eastern Conference, is nowhere near an elite defender, and is soaking up nearly a third of the team's cap. Outside of smashing Beal's knee with a pipe, I don't think Westbrook could be hurting the team more.

people were saying Russ needs to be surrounded by shooters and how this wizards team would be a great fit for him. he did great with the rockets being surrounded by shooters but the difference is defense. both okc and hou had solid defenders that helped russ maintain a level of intensity on both sides of the ball. wizards fans; who are your best defenders? Russ had the likes of steven Adam and andre roberson in okc and pj Tucker and roco in Houston. I'm not aware of any solid defensive players like that on the Washington roster today. maybe I'm wrong and dont know so im genuinely asking who's the best defender on the wizards?

I actually kinda feel bad for Westbrook. You can tell he cares, but it might be too late. This Wizards team is not built for the playoffs
[–]Wizards RPDota 7 指標 9小時前
This wizards team ain’t built for the regular season either.

I’m talking about Russell’s career in general. He’s stuck with the Wizards, in the near end of his career. It’s too late.
[–]MaxMacDaniels 63 指標 12小時前
Tbh all people hating on Westbrook in every thread the wizards lose but he is by far not their problem. He played good this far and event go his shooting still isn’t good he looks way better than in the bubble and helps his team a lot
[–]Wizards GVIrish 20 指標 9小時前
He's a net positive but that's not saying much for an all-NBA guy. Westbrook shot poorly in the first two games and had 6 turnovers in one and 5 in the other one while having some big lapses on defense.
He's not the biggest problem, Scott Brooks is. Russ is gonna have to play a lot more like he did against Chicago and put in a much smarter/better effort on defense

They lost to an 0-3 team, whilst being 0-3.
[–]Timberwolves zmajxd 661 指標 11小時前
It's really not his fault. Each game he's played he's had a positive +/-. Their bench is awful or the rotations stink.
[–]RipCity-NBA-LoL 39 指標 11小時前
Curious, do you watch their games (any of the 0-4 for the majority), or did you see +/- in boxscore and determine whose fault it was from that?
[–]Timberwolves zmajxd 54 指標 11小時前
I watched some of their games and it's mostly not his fault (he did chuck up shots most of those games) but their bench is just atrocious and that 3 guard lineup they are trying is just not working.
[–]Knicksurabeach 385 指標 11小時前
ah I checked the Wizards sub, forgot coach Scott Brooks was still a thing.
No way they should've lost yesterday.

That wizards game last night was hard to watch. I don't understand how Scott still has a job.

Scott brooks was running a damn slow bus offense in okc…when he had three future mvps on the court and a defensive nightmare in serve ibaka. The thunder were the biggest disappointment of last decade and Scott brooks shitty shitty offense is the reason why.
[–]Jazz like-Recover7560 162 指標 9小時前
I think the Wizards are one of those teams that are comfortable with existing in the NBA and being called a "professional sports team". I hate teams like this they make the entire sport boring because its easy to dissmiss watching there games. Im happy Teams like Toronto, Bucks, Heat, NO, Denver, Utah have made active pushes to do be better and not just simply exists in the sport. The NBA she put more on these teams to keep them competitive. If your a coach and you finish with a negative season 4 seasons in a row you should be gone.

Fire Scott brooks, find a center who plays defense idgaf if he can't shoot for shit Thomas bryant is not winning shit, and no more than 2 of ish/brad/russ/neto on the court at the same time goddamn

[–]Bucksjoshuads 284 指標 9小時前
Thomas bryant is not winning shit
Thomas Bryant is going to be good on his third or fourth team. He has way too much early Christian Wood where he just does not play D if he is not playing well on O.

Yea, but they have westbrook now, just like the fans the players also had higher hopes. It's still very disappointing to go 0-4 with a former MVP and an all star.
The issues isn't westbrook though, beside a few good players they don't have any depth. They're a bad team with two great superstars. The opposite of the Bulls, which is a good team without any stars lol
