A lot of people have shared their opinions on what George will do and what Georges current teammate Russell Westbrook should be doing to try and convince him to stay Westbrook has his own opinion on what he should do.

Some of the talking TV heads didn’t like the way, Westbrook responded to the question of how he will try and court George to stay the loudest person to express their disdain for Westbrook was FOX Sports personality Colin Cowherd on his show “The Herd.”
If George wants evidence of a player building a brand in a small market while also helping out his hometown he has the best example sitting next to him on the team plane in Westbrook and he can look on this past week to see the evidence.
Westbrook released his first signature shoe with the Jordan Brand releasing the Jordan “Why Not” Zero.1s then later in that same week he opened up his 20th reading room in his hometown of Los Angeles at Highland Elementary in Inglewood, California with his WhyNot Foundation. As well as announcing he will be alongside his foundation opening up nine more in Los Angeles, Westbrook also managed to help out a Californian family by donating the car he won by becoming the 2016 NBA All-Star MVP after theirs had broken down.
What a blessing!!! I could never imagine a kid like myself with his OWN shoe!! I’m still in shock lol. Huge thanks to @Jumpman23 for the opportunity and can’t wait to show y’all more flavors! #whynot pic.twitter.com/1YGWtC3gCP

“The basketball stuff comes and goes, “Westbrook said.” For me, it’s always been about giving back and finding ways to impact the community where you come from and impact the community all across the world. Me being on a stage that I’m on, obviously basketball is something I love to do, but giving back is something I love doing more.”
Going home & giving back. For @russwest44, the trip to LA this week was about more than basketball. #whynot @launitedway @stjosephctr @whynotfdn #RussellsReadingRoom #NBAVote pic.twitter.com/fhY1ITSIy5
