Russell Westbrook isn’t the “ideal” point guard many prefer seeing. I’m pretty sure he couldn’t care less as long as he can scrape the ceiling before barely planting his feet. Forget calling this liftoff against the Kings last night “impressive.” It’s one of those dunks which reminds you life just isn’t fair. I can’t lie though. I was about halfway to la-la land, even though it wasn’t a bad game, until Reggie, Kevin and Chris lost their sh*t. Even the Kings’s diehard fans couldn’t process what happened. Notice how their boisterous “DE-FENSE” chant diffused to genuine shock in a split second.
Something’s not right here though. Westbrook seems way too relaxed after his assault given he’s known to get hyped off of such energetic plays. So someone, anyone, please call Mars Blackmon for a full investigation. Plus point guards didn’t jump like that in my day so we’ll have even more reason to get to the bottom of this.
The aerial victory didn’t translate to the final score. OKC lost to Sacramento 106-101 but it’s not all bad. Westbrook beat physics with that tomahawk. I’d say that’s a pretty good trade-off
