Westbrook played collegiately at the University of California, Los Angeles and made a name for himself while with the Bruins. However, his stardom has increased significantly since joining the NBA.

The Lakers are currently in training camp, and they are getting ready to play their first preseason game on Sunday. However, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel already indicated that Westbrook will sit out the contest.

The Lakers are hoping that Westbrook’s knack for delivering triple-doubles on a nightly basis will help the team forge a path toward another NBA title.
