Steven Adams says Russell Westbrook ‘is very easy to get along with’
There’s this narrative around the league that Westbrook is a bad teammate and not a good locker room guy. Adams, though, says that’s not true at all and that the Thunder superstar is a normal person.
“There’s no – he’s a super easy, super chill, guy. Yeah. It’s very easy to get along with him,” Adams told Sam Amick of The Athletic. “He checks on everything about you – family good? All that sort of stuff, like any decent person. He’s a normal, decent person. He’s a very normal, functioning human. There’s no real special bond between me and him, but it is a personal relationship, obviously. It’s not just work. But he has that with a bunch of the other players too. I wouldn’t say ours is any more special, apart from the fact that maybe we spent a bit more time together. But that’s about it.”
It’s clear as day, though, that Westbrook is loved by his Thunder teammates.
