Russell Westbrook Is Crying People Are Calling Him “Westbrick”

This story you’re about to read is not a comedy blog. This really happened which speaks to how incredibly soft our society has become. But it’s also not something that should be surprising because it involves a player that has lived in a world of delusional because nobody told him he was being a cock his whole life. Russell Westbrook is crying that people are calling him “Westbrick”.

But wait… it gets better.

Westbrook isn’t just upset by the nickname. He thinks it’s tarnishing his family name and his kids legacy. All of which could have been avoided if people were actually intelligent and just understood that this guy sucked forever. The only difference is he plays for the Lakers now so he’s more in the spotlight and can’t hide how terrible he is.


“I 100 percent stand behind my wife and how she’s feeling,” Westbrook said after Los Angeles’ 117-100 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Monday. “When it comes to basketball, I don’t mind the criticism of missing and making shots. But the moment it becomes where my name is getting shamed, it becomes an issue.

“I’ve kind of let it go in the past because it never really bothered me. But it really kind of hit me the other day. Me and my wife were at teacher-parent conferences for my son. And the teacher told me, ‘Noah, he’s so proud of his last name. He writes it everywhere. He writes it on everything. He tells everybody and walks around and says, ‘I’m Westbrook.’ … And I kind of sat there in shock, and it hit me, like, ‘Damn. I can no longer allow people [to besmirch my name].'”

“‘Westbrick,’ for example, to me, is now shaming,” he said, referring to a condescending nickname that makes the rounds online seemingly whenever he has a poor performance. “It’s shaming my name, my legacy for my kids. It’s a name that means, not just to me, but to my wife, to my mom, my dad, the ones that kind of paved the way for me.”

What. A. Bitch. Honestly.

His kids don’t have a legacy. They’re his kids and have to be tasked with creating their own legacy. Just like every single person has to. Here’s the thing Westbrick, if you didn’t suck, nobody would call you Westbrick. That’s just the bottom line.

Westbrick shoots 28.3% from 3 and 67% from the free throw line. Guess what? Stop shooting. Stop sucking. You can have your name back then. Right now, you’re known as the guy who quite literally makes every single team he plays for worse while carrying the worst cap number in the league.

PS: Westbrick knows the deal. I’ll fight him tomorrow. I’m just waiting for him to contact me.
