Russell Westbrook Wife Chastises Fox Sports’ Skip Bayless For Calling Husband Out Of His Name

It’s no secret that Los Angeles Lakers guard Russell Westbrook hasn’t been having a very productive season since joining his hometown team. Adding to the frustration of the team not jelling with the addition of Westbrook, sports announcer Skip Bayless has been relentless in chastising LeBron James and purposefully misspelling and mispronouncing Westbrook’s name. Now, the spouse of Westbrook has had enough and has called out the Fox Sports host for calling her husband “Westbrick.”

Nina Westbrook took to her Twitter account to let Bayless know that she is not going to allow the name-calling to continue. In defense of not only her husband but to her and any family member who shares the last name, she told the announcer “to stop calling people out of their name.”

As Westbrook went on an uninterrupted Twitter rant, she expressed the frustration of having to constantly hear him disparaging the Westbrook name. As she chastises him, she reminds him that there is a difference between name-calling and “telling one’s truth.” Reminding him that having a platform “requires a certain level of responsibility.”

Russell did comment on the situation his wife spoke on after last night’s basketball game, according to NBC Sports.

“I a hundred percent stand behind my wife and how she’s feeling because it’s not just about this year. Right now, she’s reached a point, and my family has reached a point, to where it’s really weighing on them. And it’s very unfortunate just for me personally because it’s just a game. This is just a game. This is not end-all, be-all. And when it comes to basketball I don’t mind the criticism of missing and making shots. But the moment it becomes where my name is getting shamed, it becomes an issue.”
