GIF: Russell Westbrook Destroys Rim On Tomahawk Jam, Then…Raises The Roof?

Russell Westbrook

If we had to make a list of the most entertaining NBA players to watch right now, Russell Westbrook would be at, or near, the top. The Thunder point guard is also playing out of his mind since returning from a hand injury that kept him out of 15 games earlier this season. Against Sacramento last night, Russ continued to abuse OKC opponents, and even brought back a celebration that was at its peak way back in the 1990s. Read More »

Kobe Bryant, Reggie Miller, Michael Jordan

Comparing anyone to Michael Jordan is futile. There likely won’t ever be another player who can match his gaudy team and individual accomplishments, and there certainly won’t ever be one that carries the same level of cultural clout. But Kobe Bryant brings it on himself – with on-court brilliance, maniacal dedication, and an admission that Jordan is who he emulates. We doubt that will make Reggie Miller’s assessment any easier for Mamba – let alone his legion of rabid fans – to stomach. Read More »
