Video: Russell Westbrook booed by Lakers fans after another awful miss

Russell Westbrook taking a bad shot

The Russell Westbrook experience in Los Angeles is not getting much better as the season progresses.

The Lakers guard heard it from his own team’s fans during Saturday’s game against the New York Knicks. Late in the first half, Westbrook pulled up for a wide-open midrange shot and try to bank it in off the glass. Unfortunately, the shot clanged badly instead, and the Arena crowd began booing him. Even ESPN analyst Mike Breen noted the jeers on the air.

It was a horrific first half for Westbrook, who shot 1-for-7 from the field with four turnovers. The Lakers fell behind by as many as 21 before taking a 15-point deficit into halftime.

The former NBA MVP Westbrook has produced some truly ghastly bricks in his first season with the Lakers. Now it appears that the team’s fans are completely fed up with his poor play.
