NBA superstar and leading MVP candidate Russell Westbrook has no problem in speaking his mind when it comes to the media. In his new role as the sole star on his team, he has risen to be a great leader and that has shown in how he responded to a question asked to his teammate Steven Adams during their postgame interview.
Off the back of a historical season where he averaged a triple double and beat the record of triple-doubles in a season, Russell has not let his success make him an isolated star in this league. Down 3-1 in his series against the Houston Rockets, where he has had three straight triple-doubles, he refuses to let the media blame it on his teammates. Instead, he admirably defends them in a true show of leadership.
