Based on Westbrook’s recent performance and the Laker’s loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the reaction on Instagram was justified. On the same night, the Golden State Warriors welcomed back one of their top players, Klay Thompson. It wasn’t good to see the Lakers snap their four-game winning streak. On 16.7% shooting, Westbrook made about 6 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists, which was his worst performance of the season.

Based on Westbrook’s performance, it is pretty clear he is going to have a tough time as the Lakers are obligated to carry him for two more years because of his contract, but that doesn’t mean he is safe from the reactions of the fans.
