Just last week, Russell Westbrook reminded us that he doesn’t need Kevin Durant to keep singing in his car. Besides, he’s got a much more loyal friend these days. On Friday, Russ and his pup, Brodie, took to Snapchat for #NationalDogDay, and the result was a virtual atom bomb of cuteness.
Over a span of about seven seconds, the pair dances around and sings along (well, Russ does, anyway) to Ja Rule’s “Always on Time” featuring Ashanti and in the process stole the hearts of millions on the internet.
Friday was a big day for the Oklahoma City Thunder star. He also debuted a new Jordan Brand commercial, during which he may or may not have thrown shade at his former teammate Durant, but that’s neither here nor there.
Back to #NationalDogDay, Russ wasn’t the only one who got in on the fun. Athletes and celebrities around the world posted their best pics with their canine counterparts. Come to find out, there is also such a thing as #NationalPuppyDay, which to the surprise of absolutely no one, Westbrook and his little furry friend also took home the grand prize in a landslide.
With a wingman like this, Westbrook doesn’t need Durant. Well, Durant is a better basketball player than Brodie, but the connection between Westbrook and his pup can’t be beat.
