    Whitlock: Russell Westbrook is going to burn down LeBron James and the Lakers The LeBron James-Russell Westbrook marriage has a chance to rival some of Hollywood's all-time great bad marriages.

This basketball shotgun merger could be right up there with Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee's three-year marriage, which ended with Tommy doing six months jail time.
