About Russell Westbrook

Eight-time NBA All Star and Houston Rockets starter Russell Westbrook has never shied away from sharing his opinions and using social media to showcase his authentic self. Whether he’s tweeting trash at other players or making waves for his one-of-a-kind fashion sense, people are talking about the oft-trending athlete. As he racks up the stats, he also racks up followers, growing his Instagram and Twitter to 14M+ and 6M+ respectively. In 2019, Russ was traded from OKC to Houston in a surprise move that shocked the NBA world. When leaving his long-time team, he bid farewell to the city in a touching retrospective Instagram post showcasing why he’s one of the most beloved athletes out there.
