It doesn’t matter if Russell Westbrook is playing in a Team USA scrimmage, a UCLA pick-up game or on a 9-foot goal in a neighborhood cul-de-sac, Russell Westbrook is going to play at 110% and embarrass and possibly put you on a poster if you are thinking you can get on the court with him and play half-ass defense.
The HTH highlights above are from this past weekend’s Rico Hines UCLA run that also featured Westbrook’s OKC teammates Hamidou Diallo, Devon Hall, Bryce Alford and Terrence Ferguson along with new Sun Trevor Ariza, former Sun Tyler Ulis, UCLA’s Jaylen Hands, former UCLA player Kevon Looney, the Raptors’ Norman Powell, OG Anunoby and Fred Van Vleet and Clippers’ Montrezl Harrell.
The highlight of the HTH highlights above are the pull-up jumpers by Westbrook and a pretty sick move at the 5:25 mark.
Below are some alternate angles of The Brodie filmed by Corey Porter and Brandon Johnson.
Here’s some bonus footage from a Rico run one with Westbrook’s former OKC teammate James Harden.
