Westbrook himself confirms, “That’s been the same for me, honestly, man, through my career,” he continues, “I’m very used to it. And I’m very accustomed to it. That’s why I’ve just been blessed and thankful to be able to continue to play each year and keep my head down and continue competing. And whatever comes with the extra stuff, comes with it. It’s not up to me to be able to make videos and things for the internet. I just go out and do my job.”

Time will eventually prove if fans’ claims of Westbrook’s detachment from the team have any truth to them. Until now, it appears that everything has been staged and fabricated in order to drag the star into the mud.
