1. The Triple-Double King strikes again! This time, saving his team from elimination for at least another game. Russ recorded his 12th career playoff triple-double in Monday night’s Game 4 Wizards victory, moving him into third place on the NBA’s All-Time Playoff Triple-Doubles list! Only Magic Johnson and LeBron James have more.
  2. New team, new number. When Russ was traded to the Wizards before the season, he decided to go with No. 4 instead of his usual No. 0. But get this: No. 4 is actually his fave number! He wore it in high school, but it was always taken on every other team till now.
  3. It’s no secret that Russ LOVES fashion: he even launched his own fashion line, “Honor The Gift”, back in 2017. But did you know that he only wears every outfit once?! That’s right. Then he gives them away to friends or donates them to Goodwill!
  4. “Why Not?” That’s been Russell’s life motto since high school. He and his friends would just say “why not” to any silly or random suggestion one of them had about what to do or where to hang. Now, he uses it as a way to inspire people that anything’s possible!
  5. They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it’s also Russell’s favorite meal of the day…and he likes to make it a big one! His spread includes everything from green juice, fruit, and avocado toast to pancakes, omelets, and hash browns.

I created Fangirl Sports Network as a place for female sports fans to follow their favorite teams with content and coverage that speaks directly to females. It started with one and then eight and now 32 NFL Fangirls and 15 NBA Fangirls.
