“A man’s ultimate measure is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy,” wrote Westbrook, citing the late Dr King

Among those who responded to Westbrook’s post were fellow wizards Deni Avdija and Troy Brown Jr

This isn’t the first time Westbrook has been on a team that started 0-4 The 2018-19 Thunder with Westbrook and Paul George started 0-4 but then quickly bounced back and won 10 of their next 11 games

It won’t be easy for the Wizards to get there with six of their next eight games against legitimate playoff teams (Nets, Sixers, Celtics, Heat, Suns, Jazz), but there is a precedent for a Westbrook-led the team slowly approached and finally found its step

In addition, after this previously mentioned stretch, Washington will play four easier games against the Pistons, Cavaliers (2X) and Hornets in early January
