Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook was caught by cameras singing along to the Ke$ha hit song "Die Young" during pregame warmups before Friday night's game against the Dallas Mavericks.
Westbrook played in his 352nd consecutive game last night, the longest active streak in the NBA, and scored 31 points to go along with Kevin Durant's 52 points and help beat the Mavs in overtime 117-114.
As long as Westbrook plays well, we're sure the Thunder will let him sing anything he wants.

Kevin Durant scored his career best 52 points Friday night as the Thunder took out the Mavericks in overtime, 117-114. Durant scored 9 of the Thunders 12 overtime points. His look for the night, “honey dijon slacks, white button-up with a red tie for accent and a gray cardigan.
