Austin Reaves praises the human qualities of Russell Westbrook

If they no longer share the same jersey, but still play in the same city (Los Angeles), the relationships between Russell Westbrook And Austin Reaves seem to stay in good shape.

At the start of the year, the 25-year-old full-back thanked the 34-year-old leader for having supported him when he was going through a delicate period with the Lakers and, this week, he again praised the human qualities of the player of the Clippers.

Humanly, he’s one of the best teammates I’ve ever had, you can’t do better », does he think, remembering a memorable anecdote. ” I caught Covid-19 during my rookie year in Minnesota. I was stuck there for seven days, it was difficult and he contacted me three or four times, asking me if I needed anything. He offered to send me stuff, anything I could need. So yes, humanly, you can’t do better than him. »

What to leave the back of the Lakers with a question in mind…

He always made sure everyone could really get better, over and over again. Like you said, I don’t understand why his reputation is bad “, he slips on the podcast of Matt Barnes.

Ironically, we will also remember that it was the departure of Russell Westbrook that allowed Austin Reaves to explode definitively with the “Purple & Gold” in the 1/2 positions…
