Despite, Phoenix's coaches and players can still appreciate what Russell Westbrook contributes to the court.
The Suns and Clippers are in the midst of a fiercely competitive first-round series.
On Saturday, Westbrook carried the offensive load in Los Angeles' 112-100 loss to Phoenix without Paul George and Kawhi Leonard.
37 points scored on 17-of-29 shooting attempts. The former MVP struggled with every defensive assignment he was assigned.
During his postgame press conference, Suns head coach Monty Williams stated that he has never understood why Westbrook receives such severe criticism.
Kevin Durant of the Phoenix Suns was then questioned about Williams' remark.According to Durant, someone will always find something to detest about you.
"Russ has always demonstrated tenacity. He arrives at work, says little, and only comes to hoop.
After his retirement, people's opinions of his performance will be entirely candid.
