The MVP case for Russell Westbrook

This is the face of the guy playing the best basketball in the NBA right now The whole #Russ4MVP movement began as a joke, more or less. You had a headstrong personality in Russell Westbrook, who never shied away from the spotlight, despite playing with the pretty-much-consensus second-best player on Earth. Then, you had that now-infamous meme, the one where Westbrook is eyeing the MVP trophy during Kevin Durant's speech the same way a dog eyes a steak being pulled off the grill. You know, this one: It was all in good fun until right up until the season started and Durant went down with...

Kyle Singler, D.J. Augustin unspectacular with Thunder so far

The Thunder's newly acquired Motown discards are off to an average start in loud city. Both Kyle Singler and D.J. Augustin have played two games each for the Oklahoma City Thunder after being part of the exchange with Detroit which sent disgruntled floor general Reggie Jackson to Motown.  Since the transaction, Kyle Singler has worked his hipster Oregon voodoo and managed to sideline Kevin Durant with a minor foot injury, opening up the starting small forward slot on a temporary basis.  D.J., meanwhile, has slotted in as expected as Russell Westbrook's capable backup, and both players...

Thunder vs. Hornets final score: Westbrook dominates and new acquisitions shine in Oklahoma City's win over Charlotte, 110-103

Russ had a PG showdown with Mo-Will in the fourth while OKC's new guys put in work. Box Score | At the Hive Recap | Play-by-Play | Shot Chart | Popcorn Machine In the first game with their three new acquisitions in the lineup, the Oklahoma City Thunder managed to pull away from the Charlotte Hornets late, 110-103. Kevin Durant missed the game with a sore foot, and remains day-to-day.

Russell Westbrook ate tenacity for breakfast during All-Star break

Oh, was that supposed to be a weekend off? The State Farm National Bureau of Assists is an All-Star team. Whether you're on the east or the west, the agents are here to assist on StateFarm.com. As you guys probably noticed over the weekend, Russell Westbrook was busy. Aside from the normal All-Star weekend festivities, Westbrook's stay was a whirlwind of activities as he descended on NYC ready to get some work done. What's that, you say? ASW is supposed to be a break? That's just silly. No, Westbrook came to work, and his ever present tenacity in everything he does came to bear in all of...

Tuesday Bolts – 2.17.15

Jason Concepcion of Grantland: “Last night was Russell Westbrook at his best. And at his best, Russ is a surreal mix of hyper-powered self-regard, rim-murdering athleticism, and transgressive play-the-wrong-way recklessness. It’s aggression as poetry.

Snoop Dogg is Recruiting Russell Westbrook to the Lakers

One of the draws for playing for the Lakers has always been said to be the stars coming out to see you play. Well if Snoop Dogg has his way, Russell Westbrook will be enjoying that unique benefit sooner rather than later: If this is the first shot fired in a recruiting pitch to bring the Los Angeles native and recent All-Star Game MVP home, then Snoop should get some kind of parade down Figueroa.
