The current Los Angeles Lakers team surpassed all expectations to poke fun at their franchise in the 2021-22 season. After losing 13 of their last 17 games, Purple and Gold have suffered 3 losses in a row and are approaching the Play-In tournament. As a result, Russell Westbrook is among the most criticized stars from the roster. And following the loss on the road to the Mavericks, Brodie appeared to have gotten into a heated argument with LA Times reporter Brad Turner.
After the Lakers lost 110-128 to the Dallas Mavericks, Westbrook led the team without marquee players LeBron James and Anthony Davis. But since the first quarter, the Lakers didn’t seem to have a game against the Mavericks, who beat the away team by 82 points in the first half. It’s safe to say that misery certainly seems to take hold of all players, most at Westbrook.

Afterwards, Brodie immediately balked, saying, “Nothing, man, nothing,” before finally directing the question to the reporter.
“What do you think should change?‘ asked Westbrook Turner.
When Turner replied: “To win”, the former MVP rose from his chair and confronted the reporter from the podium. The two co-workers then walked back and forth for a few seconds before Russ finally defused the situation by asking other reporters if they filmed the entire interaction. Finally, they both shook hands before Russ made his way back to the locker room
That interaction has only pulled the spotlight and highlighted the misery Russell Westbrook has faced since he first started playing for the purple and gold army in Hollywood. Given the Lakers are 11th In the West Conference, Brodie’s painful fan abuse could certainly increase if the Lakers miss a play-in tournament spot entirely.
