After a bad first season in the jersey of the Lakers, Russell Westbrook hopes to rectify the situation for his return to the City of Angels. Literally. The point guard worked hard on his shot to become a bigger threat on the court. Nevertheless, the fans don’t really agree, and that’s the least we can say…
With a first victory in this pre-season, the Lakers found a little smile this Sunday evening. Darvin Ham’s men got the better of the Warriors, even if this result is anecdotal. LeBron James, just like Russell Westbrook, did not play the part. Rest obliges in Los Angeles. But between now and the resumption, Brodie has a mission that he has set himself: to reassure the fears at the level of his shoot.
Russell Westbrook ready to prove Lakers fans lie
It must be said that it is a reputation that he has had since the start of his career. Whether it’s the Thunder, the Rockets or the Wizards, Westbrook was never considered a shooter. In fact, statistically speaking, he has always been one of the worst in this exercise. It did not change when he arrived at the Lakers. A point he wants to improve for his second season in the City of Angels, as reported by journalist Kyle Goon.
“I know I’m a good shooter, and I’m very confident in myself and my ability to shoot the basketball.”

Russell Westbrook: “I know I’m a good shooter. I’m really confident in myself and my ability to take shots. »
We know that Westbrook has worked a lot this summer on this shoot. To the point of considering himself a “good shooter”? There is still a world. If the number 0 wants to reassure the supporters, he will have to do it on the floor, by chaining the shots from the parking lot. Excellent news for the Lakers if this is the case, they who will need a good address after the fiasco of last year. For now, let’s say the fanbase has some reservations.
He’s not a good shooter.
He’s a career 43% FG
He’s 30% 3Pt and 78% FT
One of the all-time worst shooting “guards”.
I salute him on his self confidence and belief in his shooting and pray it improves https://t.co/4tkd7renVJ

He’s not a good shooter. He shoots 43% career. He’s 30 percent on three-pointers and 78 percent on shots. One of the worst shooters in point guard history.
He airballed a free throw last week

He put an airball in the throw last week
Brimming with confidence, Russell Westbrook is confident he’s going to have a much better shooting season at the Lakers. From there to becoming a pure shooter? Let’s say that doubts are allowed on the side of the fans. Very nice words from Brodie, who must now confirm all this on the floor. Otherwise, it will probably be the door.
