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.
