Faced with criticism from Magic Johnson, Russell Westbrook is the ostrich | NBA


The ‘purple and gold’ ship is beginning to move in earnest as the numbers and warnings mount in the face of a situation that becomes ever more urgent. We still don’t know if the Lakers bottomed out tonight. by losing 37 points on the floor of Denver. Still, the lineup of LeBron James, whose team has a losing record, the first in his career at this stage of the regular season since his rookie year, has sunk very low.

A nouveau cap to this franchi dans la foulée puisque c’est la légende de la franchise, Magic Johnson in personne, who is a smartphone in order to defend himself from a faisant tweet part of their incomprehension face à cette saison étrange de son équipe of heart

“As Lakers fans, we can accept being outplayed, but we deserve better than a lack of effort and a lack of a sense of urgency. Owner Jeanie Buss, you deserve better.” tweeted the account to over 5 million followers.

“He is not there, around us, every day. He is not aware of what is going on internally and does not try to understand.

Invited to react when LeBron James did not appear before the press, Russell Westbrook and Dwight Howard had to face a new difficult exercise trying not to make additional waves before this new start of controversy.

“I have no reaction”, a lance Russell Westbrook. “Everyone has the right, in this world, to give their opinion. It doesn’t matter what she is. You can pick it up and wear it, put it in one ear and out the other, or not respond to it. Magic is entitled to his opinion. And he is not there, around us, every day. He is not aware of what is going on inside and does not try to understand. But I have no answer to give. As I said, everyone in this world has the right to an opinion, period”.

The Howard Method: Staying Positive

The term “overrated” used by Magic Johnson, however, nicely sums up how the Lakers were dominated tonight. And that, Russell Westbrook could not avoid it.

“We just have to play hard. Sometimes the systems and the way you play don’t really matter. You just have to play hard. Teams play harder than us, simple as that.”, added.

Meanwhile, Dwight Howard admitted that even away from the band, Magic Johnson’s tweet had some truth to it.

“There’s not much I can really say about it. We’ve been saying it all year, so I shouldn’t have to repeat it. But, you know, he’s right.”, acknowledged the pivot before recalling the necessary ingredients for a way out of the crisis. “You can’t stop believing you’re going to win and say, ‘Oh, and then shit, we’re giving up.’ We know that we put ourselves in a difficult situation, but it only takes a few games, good energy and a little push. We just have to stay as positive as possible.”
