All eyes will be on the Los Angeles Lakers and Russell Westbrook Friday night.

This is because the team will be trying to claim its third win in a row and Westbrook will be attempting to continue the positive turnaround that he has undergone over the last week.

If the Lakers win and Westbrook once again impressed the fans, loyal Lakers followers will be feeling much, much better than they did just a few days ago.

Westbrook really has looked intensely improved over the last couple of games since head coach Darvin Ham decided to bring him off the bench instead of letting him start in every game.

Ham is so impressed with Westbrook, in fact, that he said one of his goals is to get Westbrook in the Sixth Man of the Year conversation.

If this does happen and Westbrook even comes close to winning this award, it would be a huge triumph for him.


From MVP To Sixth Man

Everyone agrees that the start of the season for Westbrook was incredibly rough.

In his second game against the Los Angeles Clippers, Westbrook only posted 2 points and 3 rebounds, and 4 assists.

That’s a far, far cry from the sort of output that Westbrook used to put up.

However, he’s scored 18 and 13 points respectively since coming off the bench, as well as 8 and 7 rebounds and 8 and 9 assists.

Westbrook is coming into his own as a bench player and is looking more selfless and willing to do what it takes to help his team prosper, even if it means he isn’t a starting player.

This is literally what the fans and the staff have asked of Westbrook for so long.
