In Oklahoma City, August 4th 2016 will now be known as Russell Westbrook Day. Mayor Mick Cornett declared the day “Westbrook Day” after the Thunder star shocked many by signing a 3-year $85 million contract extension with the Durant-less Thunder.
As expected, the press conference with the always quotable Westbrook contained quite a few headline sound bytes. The best one was probably him saying “Sting for who?” when asked if Durant leaving for Golden State made it “sting more.”

But the funniest reaction of the day came from Westbrook’s teammate Enes Kanter, who celebrated the re-signing with this tweet.
