Russell Westbrook plays the game of basketball with an uncontrollable rage, something that NBA legends such as Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson have expressed their admiration for. During Oklahoma City’s 127-117 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night, that very rage was on full display as Westbrook violently assaulted the rim when he and teammate D.J. Augustin connected on a big-time alley-oop slam.
That’s absolutely breathtaking athleticism coming from your point guard, and I’ll personally never grow tiresome of watching Westbrook sky for acrobatic and ferocious finishes. Russ finished the win with 27 points and 11 assists.
