Russell Westbrook is preparing to return to the courts with the Lakers this Monday during the pre-season, the perfect time for the point guard to show his progress. According to Shams Charania, the former Thunder player would have impressed on the shoot, even if he will have to convince the supporters now.
After a summer where many rumors have evoked a departure in various franchises, Russell Westbrook will begin this Monday his second season alongside LeBron James. According to the latest information from Shams Charania, a trade is not to be ruled out in the near future, at least if the performance of the point guard is worrying under the orders of Darvin Ham. That shouldn’t be a problem, especially since Brodie has worked hard over the summer.
Russell Westbrook finally better at shooting?
In addition to his behavior with his leaders, Westbrook wanted to work on one of his biggest weaknesses: his shot. With a physique on the downward slope, Russ would be smart to become a better shooter if he wants to secure a future in the NBA, which he seems to have understood according to the latest returns. In his paper, Charania confirms that the player has given satisfaction since the start of training camp.

Russell Westbrook has refined his shooting slightly this summer, and sources say his three-point catch-and-shoot percentage has improved in practice.
This obviously does not mean that Westbrook will be a pure shooter, or even one of the best in the squad, but he hopes more often to punish the opposing defenses, which sometimes decided to leave him alone behind the arc last year. . However, it will take more to convince the supporters.

I can’t wait to see him be 40% shooting in this regular season
Russell Westbrook would have indeed made efforts on his shoot this summer, even if it will take more to impress the supporters. This is not the first time such a change has been mentioned for Brodie, who will have to prove himself once on the court. It starts this Monday, against the Kings.
