Russell Westbrook seems to be sending a message to his current team.
The All-Star point guard, who has been at the center of trade rumors throughout the NBA offseason, was noticed by social media detectives of liking and then unliking a tweet that appeared to shade Lakers owner Jeanie Buss.
It read: “Lakers win a championship and what they do? Blow up the entire team. Lakers need LeBron [James] to resign and what does owner Jeanie Buss do? Comes out says [Michael] Jordan is the GOAT,” the tweet, which was posted by a Lakers fan account titled “LakeShowYo,” stated.
The fan account claimed Westbrook liked and unliked the tweet.
Westbrook’s most recent liked tweet is one on Aug. 6, which stated the Lakers aren’t using him correctly amid the trade rumors.
“Brodie was getting into a rhythm dealing with all the injuries and lineup changes while not being used right and they want to trade him?” the tweet stated.
Westbrook has been at the center of trade talks involving multiple teams after a historically poor debut with Los Angeles last season.
New head coach Darvin Ham continues to show his support for the point guard, but trade rumors continue to swirl. The Lakers, Knicks and Jazz had discussions about a three-team trade that would’ve featured Donovan Mitchell returning home to New York, but things fell apart.
The 33-year-old point guard averaged 18.5 points in 78 games last season — his lowest since his second season in the league in 2009-10.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
