You know that feeling you get when something bad is about to happen? You know, all the signs are there, red-flags are waving, and you are just waiting for the inevitable devastation to occur.That probably went through Minnesota Timberwolves' Luke Ridnour's mind as he was left to defend Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook in last night's matchup.
Check out Ridnour (h/t thesportsbank.net) getting absolutely humiliated by a Westbrook crossover-dribble. And by "humiliated" I mean this highlight will forever haunt Luke's pro-career. He can go on and score 50 points in the next 10 games, marry some gorgeous actress, or even make the All-Star squad and it won't be enough to make anyone forget this humiliation.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Oklahoma Thunder are my pick this season to win the Western Conference and advance to the NBA finals. I am picking them mainly because of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
On Monday the Thunder played at the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Thunder won but I will remember one play for this game. Russell Westbrook put on a nasty crossover on Luke Ridnour. The crossoverâ...
The Oklahoma City Thunder seem to be the majority pick to represent the Western Conference in the NBA finals. Theyâ€™re definitely my pick and a 3-0 start helps back up the prediction, but they havenâ€™t resolved one of the biggest issues that kept them from the finals last year: the inconsistent play and immaturity of point guard Russell Westbrook.
Thereâ€™s no doubt that Westbrook...
I feel sorry for you if you missed tonightâ€™s Oklahoma City and Minnesota game. So entertaining. But there wasnâ€™t anything that was better than this. While Ricky Rubio and J.J. Barea were making circus plays, the Wolvesâ€™ third point guard, Luke Ridnour, nearly killed himself trying to check Russell Westbrookâ€¦ What do you think? Follow [...]
The supposed rift between Oklahoma City stars Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant took another turn on Wednesday night. Oklahoman reporter Darnell Mayberry says Westbrook and Durant got into an altercation on the Thunder bench after players objected to the way Westbrook scolded teammate Thabo Sefolosha. Westbrook was upset that Sefolosha passed on an open shot and cursed at him. Teammates...
Oklahoma City stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were involved in an altercation on the bench during a second-quarter timeout in Wednesday night's 98-95 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.
Westbrook's frustrations appeared to have started with about 3:30 left in the quarter when Thabo Sefolosha passed up a wide-open three, prompting Westbrook to yell at the guard, "...
We know that when it comes to white guys on the basketball court that they can't jump but it turns out they can't defend either. Take Luke Ridnour of the Minnesota Timberwolves, playing defense on Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, the white boy bites HARD on an absolutely GORGEOUS crossover, practically breaking his ankles clean off his body in the process.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are 3-0 and theyâ€™re probably the front-runner to represent the Western Conference in the NBA finals, but last nightâ€™s game against the Memphis Grizzlies showed theyâ€™re far from invincible. They have an immense amount of talent and depth, their biggest threat comes from within.
Their team chemistry has always been questionable, mainly because their...
Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook had a horrendous night against the Memphis Grizzlies. Westbrook went 0-13 from the floor with only six assists while turning over the ball four times and committing three fouls. Things got so bad that he snapped on his teammate Thabo Sefolosha and then later got into an altercation with the teams star Kevin Durant. Some reports...
Oklahoma Thunder teammates Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant got into a shouting match on the bench during a second-quarter timeout of Oklahoma's 98-95 win over the Memphis Grizzlies, the Oklahoman reported Wednesday.
Elite teams win on their off days. This was certainly an off day for the Thunder. Russell Westbrook went 0-13, missing shots he usually drains blindfolded. He got frustrated and that led to words with Thabo Sefolosha and Kevin Durant, to the point Durant and Westbrook had to be separated. And in the end, theâ€¦
