WATCH: Lakers’ Russell Westbrook takes on villain role in upcoming documentary

Russell Westbrook, Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers superstar Russell Westbrook breaks down who he really is in his upcoming documentary on SHOWTIME called ‘Passion Play’. Westbrook, the former MVP and the reigning triple-double king, is one of the most polarizing characters in the league. Now, the newest member of the Lakers shares his side of the story in his new documentary that’s set to premiere next month.

Peep the trailer here (via SHOWTIME):

The Lakers star has gained a ton of fans with the way he approaches the game. He’s evolved from being a young fiery star for the Oklahoma City Thunder to being one of the most gifted and unapologetic talents in the league. Unfortunately, a lot of folks have misinterpreted his demeanor and has branded him as a villain.

“In the sports world, I am the bad guy. People don’t really understand who I am,” Westbrook says in the trailer. “Because there’s really nobody to compare [me to]. I’m Russell.”

The 32-year-old has achieved a lot. Brodie is a former MVP, a two-time NBA All-Star MVP, a nine-time All-NBA Team member, a two-time scoring champ, and a three-time assists leader – to mention a few. He’s jumped from team to team over the past few seasons and he’s now looking to add some star power alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis this upcoming season for Los Angeles.

Whether you love him or hate him, one thing is for sure, Russ will continue to be Russ. Ain’t nothing you can do about it.
