Who is Russell Westbrook's wife Nina Earl?

During his tenure with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Westbrook took time during the off-season to wed his longtime girlfriend, Nina Earl, in August 2015.

Like Westbrook, Earl grew up in Southern California.

She attended Diamond Ranch High School, where she was a multisport athlete, competing on the basketball and track & field teams.

However, Basketball ended up in the forefront, as Earl lead her high school team to two California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) title games in 2003 & 2007.

She attended the University of California, Los Angeles, where she played on the UCLA basketball team.

While at UCLA, she met and formed a bond with Westbrook, a star in his own right with the Bruins men's basketball team.

The couple has three children together, including a pair of twins.

Westbrook and Earl welcomed Noah, 4, in 2017, and their twin daughters, Skye and Jordyn, 2, a year later.

On July 29, the Los Angeles Lakers made the first blockbuster move of the NBA off-season thus far - pulling off a trade for the Long Beach native.

Westbrook you are great to have beautiful black wife where most of the black nba players have white girlfriends or light skin mixed women

So why isn't her name Nina Westbrook instead of Nina Earl if that's his wife she can have whatever she wants except his last name? My wife better have my last name...

They would never ask a Black player who is his wife if she is white. It's uncommon for a Black Player to marry Black. It's so sad that it's uncommon for a Black successful man to marry someone like his mother or sister. It's shocking to white society that a Black man would love and respect his mother and marry someone of high standards like her.
