POTD 4/1/12: Russell Westbrook on Omer Asik

Ronny Brewer was terrified.  Taj Gibson knew it wasn’t going to end well.  Kevin Durant was already pumping his fist.  Russell Westbrook was only about halfway through his flight to the rim, but it was clear from the jump that poor Omer Asik didn’t have a prayer.  Westbrook is just so explosive… it’s crazy.  If you watch the video closely you’ll find that he and Asik...

Russell Westbrook Gets Angry At The Rim

Russell Westbrook was on a mission today, and 7-foot Omer Asik decided to get in the way. Russ took a hop-step into the lane then exploded towards the rim and put Asik in a poster.

Video: Russell Westbrook posterizes Omer Asik

    The Oklahoma City Thunder are having their way with the Derrick Rose-less Chicago Bulls this afternoon. At one point Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant had 53 points combined while the entire Bulls team had 51. To make matters worse for Chicago Westbrook went and did this to Omer Asik…     Westbrook and [...]


Russell Westbrook was intent on stepping on the Bulls’ throats on Sunday. I’d say he was pretty successful. I’m just gonna go out on a limb and say RUSSELL WESTBROOK has some serious hops! The 6-foot-3 throat-stepper brought the thunder down on Chicago’s OMER ASIK during Sunday’s Thunder-Bulls game… That was straight fire to the grill! 4real, 4real… Westbrook scored...

Russell Westbrook thrashes Bulls Omer Asik

The Oklahoma City Thunder are on a crash course for the NBA finals. My preseason prediction was that the Heat and Thunder would meet in the finals but I reserved declaring a winner until I waited to see how both teams developed within the season. While LeBron James is having one of his best seasons [...]

Thunder stars out of sync in loss to Grizzlies

OKLAHOMA CITY Eddie Sutton was inside the Memphis lockerroom Monday night. He was watching his former team Kentucky play for the national championship. But he was smiling at his former Oklahoma State pupil Tony Allen. Allen and Memphis locked up the Thunder, who came into the game as the hottest team in the league, fresh off wins against Miami, Chicago and the Lakers. Yeah...

Kevin Durant calls out Skip Bayless: ‘That guy doesn’t know a thing about basketball’

Kevin Durant called out resident ESPN antagonist Skip Bayless for his lack of basketball knowledge Monday. Responding to the clown’s apparent comments that Russell Westbrook shoots too much for the Thunder (don’t ask me, I don’t pay any attention to anything he says), Durant said “That guy doesn’t know a thing about basketball.” The criticism of Russell Westbrook has...

Grizzlies-Thunder Preview

After easily beating the team with the league's best record, the rejuvenated Oklahoma City Thunder have yet another game against one of their fellow championship contenders later this week.
