Russell Westbrook has an explosive step to the basket and an explosive temper to boot. But what he happens to be is an integral part of the Oklahoma City Thunder championship aspirations, despite enraging purists with his shot selections, irritating fans with his quick temper and insulting fashion aficionados with his selection of off-court outfits and eyewear.
So when the volatile and talented point guard went down with a meniscus tear in his knee during the playoff game against the Houston Rockets, fans and opponents alike took to social media to assess their Thunder’s chances of still winning a title as well as offer condolence to Westbrook.
Take a look at Twitter reactions to Russell Westrook’s knee injury.
Westbrook very well maybe the guard in the league but he too selfish for kd to ever reach his full potential. I’d trade him for rondo
