Russell Westbrook All Smiles at L.A. Birthday Dinner, Despite Rockets Drama

He may not be happy in Houston, but Russell Westbrook was all smiles in L.A. on Thursday … where he celebrated his birthday at one of the swankiest spots in town.

Russ turned the big 3-2 on Thursday — and hit up Delilah with his wife, Nina, and some close pals (No, James Harden wasn’t there).

As you may have heard, Westbrook is looking to leave the Houston Rockets … where he’s reportedly unhappy with the team’s “accountability and culture,” according to The Athletic.

He apparently wants to play for a squad where “he can have a role similar to his prior, floor-general role in Oklahoma City.”

So, Westbrook has reportedly made a trade request with just about a month until the 2020-21 NBA season kicks off. Tick tock …

Westbrook still has 3 years left on his current contract — which is set to pay him out more than $132 MILLION.

No wonder he’s still so happy!
