The day LeBron broke his record, Westbrook fought his manager
Russell Westbrook is having a rough time with the Los Angeles Lakers.
‘ESPN’ quoted a source on the 9th (Korean time) and said that Westbrook had an argument with manager Davin Hamm in the locker room during a home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder the day before.
The match was focused on breaking the personal career scoring record of teammate LeBron James.
Westbrook had a brief but intense altercation with Ham in the locker room at halftime after the second quarter.
According to ESPN, the dispute between the two began when Hamm expressed his dissatisfaction with Westbrook for not coming off the court quickly after being substituted out in the last minute of the second quarter.
Fortunately, it did not turn into the worst situation, such as a big fight and a player refusing to participate in the match.
The media explained that although the voices were raised, it eventually led to a discussion to win the game.
This quarrel also had the effect of stimulating Westbrook. He struggled, scoring 14 points in the 4th quarter alone. The two reportedly exchanged greetings before leaving the arena.
The game ended with the team losing 130-133.

Last season, the number of sitting on the bench increased during the clutch time in the 4th quarter, and this season, out of 52 appearances, only three starting appearances have decreased.
The possibility of him leaving the team is also being raised. ‘The Athletic’ NBA reporter Shames Charania reported that the Lakers are discussing a plan to send Westbrook to Utah and sign D’Angelo Russell through a triangle trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz.
