Marshawn Lynch Compares Westbrook’s All-Star Game Snub to Seahawks Super Bowl XLIX Playcalling
On Thursday, the NBA all-stars were announced and social media lost its mind when it was revealed that Golden State Warriors PG Stephen Curry was starting for the Western Conference over OKC Thunder guard Russell Westbrook.
Westbrook has 21 triple-double’s by himself and he’s coming off the bench. The entire Western conference all-star game starters have 19 combined – Take away Rockets guard James Harden who has 13, and that’s 21 to 6.
Former Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch took to Twiiter and compared Westbrook’s snub to the Seahawks not giving him the ball at the goal line during Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots.
Russell Westbrook not starting in the #NBAAllStar game is almost as crazy as not running the ball on the 1 w/ a Super Bowl on the line.
