Last quote by Russell Westbrook

Just each day, just making sure that I came in and wasn't making it about me. Obviously with me playing and people understanding that I'm the leader from the outside looking in, but that doesn't necessarily mean you're a leader. And I truly believe that. I think there's a lot of guys that people just give them the leader [label] because they're the best player, and that is not how it worked for me.feedback

Russell Westbrook quotes

I practice that shot everyday pregame. So, I definitely feel confident in shooting that shot. Pure adrenaline, emotions running high, game-winning shot, it is something you dream about as a little kid to be able to do that on the road especially from that distance. It is something you definitely will never forget.feedback

My motto is 'Why not?' and I always stick by it, regardless of what people say what is possible, is not possible. I continue to think 'Why not?' and continue to strive to be the best that I can be.feedback

It's amazing. It's something I never could dream about as a kid. I'm just very thankful and blessed to be able to go out and compete on the highest level. I'm just thankful for my teammates, my coaching staff, my fans, my family, and I just thank God for my blessings each and every day.feedback

You could never say in a million years that I would ever think that was even possible.feedback

I'm honored just to be mentioned in a conversation with Oscar Robertson. The different things he did for the game of basketball to allow me to play the game today, I think that's more important. Obviously triple-doubles are a great thing, but the way he played the game, the era when he played the game to allow guys like me to be able basketball and be able to do things like this. For me to do it, it's a blessing that I'm honored to be able to do in this game today at the highest level. It's a true blessing. I'm just very thankful to be able to do it.feedback

Yeah, man, I just wasn't myself. I just got to come out and be ready. I set a standard for myself that's really high and it's good for me – sometimes it's bad for me – but I can live with that and I want to make sure I stay up to my standard and hold up my end of the bargain for the team.feedback

I'm not sure, man. To piggyback on what I just said, every night I go out and compete on a high level. I take pride in that, taking care of my body, different things of that nature, to go out there and play and make sure that my team has a chance to win the game.feedback

I mean, I was 6-for-25. F---, I mean, what you want me to do? I wasn't making the shots, so somebody else can help. My job is to see what's going on and try to find guys that make some shots, and maybe we can get something going. But it wasn't falling for me tonight. I wasn't playing for records since I've been in the league. This is my ninth year. I play the same way every single night. Record or no record, I compete at a high level, and that's what I do.feedback

No, no it wasn't. I just play, man, honestly. It definitely wasn't a goal, just going out and trying to win. Leadership to me was more important than averaging points or field goal percentage or whatever, because I think that's what gets us the furthest and helps us win a championship.feedback

Honestly, people with this triple-double thing is kind of getting on my nerves. People think if I don't get it, it's like a big thing. When I do get it, it's a thing. If I get it, I get it.
