Russell Westbrook has to be above this.

I know he is sensitive about being Westbrick, but that is within the realm of acceptable trash talk. He knows Skip Bayless is a troll and trying to get a reaction from him, so he needs to be more like LeBron and just let it go.

He doesn’t look good in these situations.

You can’t threaten a journalist over a nickname, even if it is bad.

Meanwhile, according to LA Times, the Lakers are actively trying to get rid of him so that they can bring in Kyrie Irving.
