Apparently averaging a triple-double in the NBA doesn’t do much for a guy these days. As if Russell Westbrook needed any more fuel this season (re: Kevin Durant departure), we may see the Oklahoma City Thunder star play with more force than an Obi-Wan Kenobi disciple.
Taking it all in stride, Westbrook seems the consummate professional. I’m keen to see when exactly Russell can carry this team by himself far into the Western Conference Playoffs (championship?) and whether his supporting cast will step up and knock some heads. But in the meantime, we can enjoy a pure display of nightly explosion courtesy of Russell.
