Russell Westbrook is one of the league’s most diverse superstars. It’s only right that he would come home to the Los Angeles Lakers. Westbrook’s passion and energy are his most prominent qualities. There’s a lot to these things that deserve a spotlight as to why.

As time would see to it, Westbrook’s journey is going to be hitting televisions near us. Showtime Sports is leading the way with Westbrook sharing rare stories and pieces of his life. He spoke about the project, “Passion Play”:

“I’m proud to share this documentary and give audiences an inside look into who I really am on and off the court,” Westrbook said in a statement. “There are a lot of misconceptions about me, but I’m ready to share my story and my journey with my fans.”

Russell Westbrook joins LeBron James in the Hollywood ranks. James also had a documentary about him in the form of a film titled “More Than A Game”. To see these guys tell their stories is great for the game. It gives fans a better understanding of where they’re from and what they’ve been able to elevate beyond.

Passion Play will hit Showtime streaming on October 15th at 6PM EST, just four days before the start of the NBA season.
