Russell WestbrookGiven that the Knicks have sucked for the last 15 years I’ve been forced to adopt a team for the playoffs and for the last 4 years that team has been the Oklahoma City Thunder. Everybody loves Kevin Durant. It’s universal. You can’t say the same thing about Russell Westbrook. There are nights he’ll have you cursing and shaking your head at the screen but with Russ you just have to take the good with the bad. Personally, I love the guy. There are very few players I’d rather watch or have on my team. Grantland posted a piece on his career arc this week and it’s pretty remarkable. Sports fans have incredibly short memories and Westbrook was not always on the path to becoming an NBA superstar. I sincerely hope OKC finds a way to keep him and KD together and gets them some help next season.
