Russell Westbrook Wins Scoring Title (34 points in 1st half), Says It Means “$hit”
David Thompson vs George Gervin. David Robinson vs Shaq. There’s been a lot of tight scoring races that ended with huge games on the final day of the regular season with one player celebrating the accomplishment at the end. That wasn’t exactly the case with Russell Westbrook and James Harden on Wednesday. Harden ended his MVP worthy season with a triple double but only 16 points while Russell Westbrook had a near triple double with a game-high 37 points (a David Thompson like 34 in the first half) which gave Westbrook the scoring title… which mean absolutely “shit” to the Thunders superstar.
“Shit. It doesn’t mean nothing. Good job. Hooray. I’m at home, watching other teams play. It doesn’t mean nothing.”
The Thunder needed a win and for the the Pelicans to lose on Wednesday for OKC to make the playoffs. The Thunder beat the Wolves 138-113 but the Pelicans won their game so Westbrook, who had one of the best statistical streaks in recent memory, will be missing the playoffs.
“He’s had a season for the ages,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “He’s done things on both ends, rebounding passing scoring, defending that hasn’t been seen in decades. But he’s also led.”
I think 4x scoring champ Kevin Durant’s tweet during the 2nd quarter of the game sums up Westbrook and his MVP worthy season.
Sheesh this guy is ridiculous lol.
