Russell Westbrook Throws Down Massive Dunk Early On In Game 6

Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder has his issues but you can not deny that he is extremely athletic and extremely good at what he does.  Early on against the San Antonio Spurs, Westbrook had a clear path to the lane and committed a felony assault on the rim.

Russell Westbrook may struggle late in games with decision making, but he is one heck of an athlete.  He might be the most athletic point guard in the league now since Derrick Rose is currently sans ACL.  If he was healthy it would be a tossup.  Instead, it has to go to Russ West.

If he can continue to make plays like this, Russell Westbrook can be the top point guard in basketball.  It is going to take some more development, but he has all the potential in the world.  If he can harness how angry he plays and use it as a positive, he is going to be a great one.  Passing to Kevin Durant on occasion probably would not hurt either.

I salute this dunk Russell Westbrook.  For all the issues that you have, you can still rock the rim with the best of them.  If you plan on beating the Spurs in a do or die game for them, you are going to need plays that might put them on their heels.  A massive dunk like this can certainly accomplish that a lot faster than people think.  Stay fly Russ.
