The bashings were indeed harsh throughout Twitter.
While Westbrook’s fashion choices may have garnered negative attention, his contributions to the Clippers have been solid. With the addition of Westbrook to the team, the Clippers are finding their groove and are once again contenders to win the Western Conference. Alongside Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, who are both picking up solid games, Westbrook is content and running the second unit smoothly.

While his outfit may not have been a crowd-pleaser, Westbrook’s skills on the court are undeniable, and he remains an integral part of the Clippers’ quest for a championship.
