RUSSELL WESTBROOK For Complex Magazine …
If you’re a fan of professional basketball then you are well aware of OKC’s point guard Russell Westbrook. He glides on the court, assuring that he gets the ball into the hands of ‘OKC’s scoring machine’ Kevin Durant’. As Complex points out, ‘No matter what box you try to place Westbrook in, the natural-born non-conformist refuses to stay in it. “I take risks, but I don’t of it that way,” he says with a smile.’ And I’d like to point out that he has an amazing smile!
I’m definitely a major fan of professional football, but I love watching an aggressive, entertaining game of professional basketball as well and Westbrook never disappoints! I agree that his style isn’t always ‘pretty’, but it’s effective most of the time. His game is unlike most point guards in the association and he’s super fast! The offensive opportunities he creates are great to watch and even with that height he moves swiftly on the court. That Durant/Westbrook combination is something to watch and I’m looking forward to seeing more great things from this kid!
