Sounds of Thunder: Russell Westbrook Named to the All-NBA First Team!!! Finally.

A season after being compared with one the all-time greats in NBA history, Westbrook has finally taken his place among the stars.

After nine years in Chicago, the 31-year-old center is likely to find a new home this summer. Should the Clippers have interest?
