J.J. Watt is by no means a small man. In fact he is a very large fella and clocks in at a solid 6′ 5″, 295 lbs.

Remember when Russell Westbrook lost his mind during that blowout Thunder victory over the Grizzlies? It happened about two weeks ago, on January 31st, after he was whistled for a seldom-called five second violation in the post. Suddenly, Westbrook became furious with teammate Thabo Sefolosha, who’d poorly timed his cut. Upon being summoned to the bench, he pitched an explosive...

JJ Watt had one of the best seasons by a defender, possibly ever. He easily won DPOY and rightfully so. He’s only going to get better and that’s scary for offenses around the NFL.
