When Russell Westbrook isn’t wearing clothing sent from the future or starring in weird Mountain Dew commercials, he’s usually taking kids’ lunch money on the basketball court. He has fun doing that too. We’ve already shown you his signature “3-point pistol” celebration after he knocks down a shot from long range.
But Sunday night, ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s game against the Denver Nuggets, Westbrook took his whole fun thing to another level, busting out this pre-game dance routine before he headed out to the court, something we’ve seen Cam Newton do all season long.
Westbrook, clearly still in a great mood, proceeded to propel the Thunder to a 122-112 win, almost posting a triple-double with 30 points, 12 assists and 9 rebounds. That line included the above dunk, which goes to show you should never, ever give Westbrook an open lane to the hoop, or he will speed to the rim in a burst of flames.
Never stop having fun, Russ.
