Reminder: That’s a point guard.
It’s easy to forget that Russell Westbrook is a 6-4 floor general. He scores like a wing, rebounds like a big man, and hustles like a benchwarmer. But not only is the Oklahoma City Thunder MVP candidate a bucket-getting, board-eating, floor-burning superstar, but he’s a table-setter, too.
How many point guards in league history can dunk with the explosiveness and ferocity that the 26 year-old shows off here? The same amount that has ever played the game like Westbrook, of course – none.
Spurred by big first halves from Russ and Enes Kanter, the Thunder lead the Los Angeles Lakers 68-53 at intermission.
