VIDEO: Russell Westbrook follows up his own missed free throw and scores


Like wait, what? Russell Westbrook routinely does things to wow us on the basketball court. I’m rarely ever surprised by the things he does, but this one might take the cake.

Forget the presence of mind, the sheer athleticism it takes to pull this off is stupid. Watch how Westbrook takes two steps to gather into re-claiming the ball to put it back in. Not only that, but he catches it mid-air, with one hand, and finishes with a scoop layup. This guy is just different.
