Russell Westbrook Looked About As Impressive As You Can While Getting Denied By The Rim

Russell Westbrook is so much fun.

Westbrook didn’t grab a rebound during Game 3’s victory over the Mavericks. Now, it seems like he’s making up for lost time.

Russ tore the ball away from Dirk Nowitzki in about the most aggressive way that he possibly could. It was a typically ferocious board from the man who is probably the NBA’s best-rebounding point guard.

But the dunk — or is it the non-dunk? — might be the best part. Westbrook throws down as hard as anyone. It turns out, even when he doesn’t get over the rim, he still manages to make his attempts particularly exciting.
