Russell Westbrook: Net worth, salary and endorsements

Russell Westbrook was born on November 12, 1988, in Long Beach, California. NBA’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) in 2017 was named after his father. Russell has a younger brother named Raynard, and married Nina Earl in 2015.

He started his NBA career in 2008 when the Seattle SuperSonics (which later became Oklahoma City Thunder) drafted him as the fourth overall pick. He rose as a superstar while playing for the Thunder. Westbrook won the MVP award in 2017 when he averaged a triple-double for the season. He also set a record for the most triple-doubles in a season, with 42. However, he was traded to Houston Rockets prior to the 2019/20 season.

Russell Westbrook and Houston Rockets

The move saw Westbrook reunite with his former teammate James Harden. With two star point guards, the Rockets have been looking to adopt the small ball philosophy.
