It’s been a rough season for both the Los Angeles Lakers and the Sacramento Kings. Both teams have been among the worst in the league.

Expectations are different for a team with higher expectations, such as the Lakers. If they fail to meet those expectations, people start talking about them.

For Russell Westbrook, it’s been a season of constant criticism due to his inefficient play. His shooting has also declined as a result.

After the Lakers’ loss to the Kings on Wedneaday, fans started panicking about the team’s play and Westbrook’s performance. However, LeBron James tried to calm the raging fans on Twitter, tweeting: “Just keep working. … He’s getting some really good looks, but they’re just not going down for him (Westbrook).”

James has been known to support his teammates no matter their situation.

After the Lakers loss to the Brooklyn Nets in December, Westbrook was also criticized for his performance, but James trusted the guard to bounce back.

“I think he had an off-shooting night,: James said. “He missed so many shots around the rim that he had been accustomed to making throughout his career and throughout the season, so not worried about too much of that.”

Moreover, King James also believed in Westbrook’s decision-making. “I think his decision-making was spectacular tonight,” he said. “He had 11 assists, he had 12 rebounds, 5 of them offensive and we know we’re not one of the better offensive rebounding teams in this league.”

James sees many good things from his teammates instead of just the number of points they score. “He gave us extra possessions, he just missed a lot of looks around the basket, which I know he can’t stand as well,” the 37-year-old NBA star said.
