New mural unites Russell Westbrook’s L.A. past and present


There are plenty of murals in the Los Angeles area celebrating Los Angeles Lakers players past and present. That list now includes Russell Westbrook, who was traded to the Lakers in August.

One recent piece of art is not far from where Westbrook started his hoops career.

Westbrook was born in Long Beach, California, and played high school basketball at Leuzinger High School in Lawndale. The latest mural, painted by Gustavo Zermeno Jr., is painted on the wall at A Baseball Clubhouse and Comic Books, a memorabilia shop in Hawthorne, less than 2 miles from Westbrook’s old high school.

Zermeno, from Venice, California, has collaborated with the Lakers and Los Angeles Rams. He has also painted murals honoring Kobe Bryant, Tommy Lasorda, Aaron Donald and the 2020 Lakers and Los Angeles Dodgers championship teams.
