Favorite Quotes from Russell Westbrook

“Once you put in all the work pre-practice and post-practice and see it in a game and see it in play, that’s a great feeling.” Russell Westbrook
“Messy stuff irritates me. I don’t like messiness. If you leave something around my house, I’ll tell you to move it back, clean it up, throw it in the trash – don’t matter, just get rid of it. I need stuff neat, organized. And once I start cleaning stuff, I don’t stop until it’s done. Otherwise, I’m irritated all day.” – Russell Westbrook
“If I get to know somebody, I’ll open up, but other than that I like to sit back and observe things.” – Russell Westbrook
“Because [Russel Westbrook] is so rare and impacts the game in so many different ways, you see the usage and the amount of time he’s playing and say, ‘is this sustainable?’ I look at it the other way. Are we playing the right way, are we playing together as a team, and what are his minutes like? This is not a guy that’s playing 42 minutes a night. When he goes out there he’s going to play to who he is, and I think he also understands that in order for our team to be the best we can be he’s got to incorporate and help everybody grow as players.” – Russell Westbrook
