Russell Westbrook is really enjoying a moment right now, isn't he? On Sunday, he stole the show at the 2015 NBA All-Star Game, scoring 41 points in just 25 minutes and taking home the MVP award. On Monday, Kobe Bryant revealed that he sees a lot of himself in Westbrook during NBA TV's Kobe: The Interview. And late last night, Snoop Dogg took to his Instagram account to try and convince Westbrook to sign with the Lakers in 2017. Westbrook won't be a free agent for another two years, but Snoop wants him to "come on home" when his current contract is up:
Snoop isn't the first Lakers fan to try and actively recruit Westbrook. If you remember, a Lakers fan hollered at Westbrook about coming to Los Angeles during a game a few months back—like, literally hollered at him during the game—and Westbrook shot down his request. But a lot could happen between now and 2017, so who knows?
