Russell Westbrook Almost Killed Rudy Gobert With This Dunk (Video)
I don’t know if reporting a Russell Westbrook triple-double this season can be classified as “news” anymore, but on his way to tallying up another one last night, he did something that definitely WAS newsworthy. He brought the hammer down on the Jazz’s Rudy Gobert as the latter went up to try and stop a Westbrook dunk.
It…didn’t go well for Rudy:
Westbrook missed the dunk, but at 6’4″, going up against a 7’1″ defender, I think he still made his point.
And for good measure, Westbrook talked about going up against Gobert earlier in the day:

Westbrook also hit the game-winner to give OKC a 97-95 victory over the Jazz.
How is this man not starting in the All-Star Game???
