If you didn’t know Kevin Durant moved on and went to the Golden State Warriors. Big Surprise huh? With his ties to Andre Iguodala and Steph Curry from the World Fiba Basketball of 2010. He’s teamed up with them, and he’s only there to win an or some championships. I digress, but now no Durant in Oklahoma, who’s left? Russell Westbrook, he’s sort of been playing as if he’s the Dick Grayson to Durant’s Batman. Now, out of the shadows he’s emerged as a one-man commando, he’s transformed himself into Nightwing. How about that?
Now, with Westbrook being the solo Superstar in Oklahoma City, you get to see him without the leash. He’s taking off, flying, dunking, defending, what is he not doing. I love seeing him play now, he’s a beast out there. Even though his streak of averaging a triple-double ended last night; only to tie with Michael Jordan himself. It’s not over by a long shot. Look to see him get big numbers in the All-Star votes this year. I mean the athletic ability he has is on par with the season Derrick Rose won the MVP. There’s a big case for Westbrook to win it this year, check it out OKC has two MVP awards to their credit now. Lol, it’s possible.
With his endorsements and commercials, he’s been in plenty and had plenty. Since, he’s gotten the big endorsement from the Jordan brand and from Jordan himself. Nike is the base of basketball sneaker wear, who signed Kevin Durant. Now, we have Westbrook under the luxury/high-class brand of Nike, which is Jordan. I love it and have you seen the commercials for the shoe yet? Oh, my you have to see them if you’re a basketball fan. When I saw one before the season started I said, “Game on Durant.” Seems each one is a different shot at Durant and his departure to be a role player.
I am more of a fan of Westbrook than I have ever been in years. I still need him to step his defense up another level, but he’s still better than the counterpart he had there. All of his effort will come to fruition this season and next. Watch out. It helps even more when the Western Conference looks the weakest it has ever in years. I wonder what a Westbrook and Kevin Love team up in OKC would look like??
