Hello !

To begin with, not everyone hates Russell Westbrook, although among basketball and NBA fans there are many people who treat Russell with a certain negative.

To answer your question seriously, there are the following factors, because of which many people do not like Westbrook:

1) Westbrook played in a team with Kevin Durant. Durant is perhaps one of the three strongest basketball players of his generation with whom fantastic results could be achieved. Westbrook constantly overexposed the ball and did not allow Durant to reach his full potential, after which Durant left the team

2) Westbrook won the MVP (Most Valuable Player of the Regular Season), and many disagreed with this decision. Westbrook has shown outstanding statistics, but the problem is that fans often belittle Rassal. Westbrook almost constantly holds the ball, so the high number of his passes is not surprising, and in the fight for rebounds, his own partners often concede the ball to him. That is, many fans believe that the very transfers and rebounds that Westbrook earns are "junk", since they do not increase the efficiency of the team

3) According to statistics, Westbrook seems to be one of the best players in the league , but since Durant's departure, the Oklahoma club, which Westbrook plays for, have not won a single streak in the playoffs in the last three seasons

Among basketball fans, Westbrook is considered a basketball player who thinks only about personal achievements, and There are a lot of videos on the Internet where Westbrook takes rebounds from his partners or yells at any of the partners if he does not immediately throw after Russell's pass, so that an extra pass gets into the statistics

Because he is dark-skinned, and white cisgenders don't like blacks.

Joke.

I don't know, to be honest, I didn't notice much negative about Westbrook. Russell plays like a dude, but he changes basketball, which is great. He generally leads the life of a righteous man - he does not beg for fouls and does not argue with the judges, is not seen in off-court scandals, does not teach Trump about life, is married to a school friend, an exemplary family man.

Perhaps there is some kind of hate with fans of Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, because Westbrook is able to break the records of their idols, which makes the cobefiles and Jordanfags feel a little uneasy. Well, fans of James Harden believe that he, not Westbrook, should have become the best player of the 2016/17 season.

I am very interested in your question. I went to various American sites to read the opinions of the haters. Here are some sayings:

  • He is the least effective player among the NBA stars, but he does not deserve criticism at all. He makes basketball better
  • Westbrook is selfish. He is more likely to shoot than pass to a better positioned teammate
  • Russell has everything to be a great player, but he prefers to show off. And in general Westbrook is kind of fake
  • Performs poorly in defense
  • Westbrook doesn't care about statistics, so nerds hate him
  • He should stop shooting 3s, especially with his lousy implementation
  • His style of play is slick and crazy. Westbrook seems to play a lot. But off the court he looks like a tough guy
  • It's just that Westbrook lets everyone criticize himself, so they clung to him.
    And the coolest thing:

Westbrook poisoned the water supply, burned the crops and sent plague to our homes
