Russell Westbrook lost his damn mind yesterday

How dare you shoot after the whistle, how dare you sir. Russell Westbrook goal-tended not one, but two Indiana Pacer shots during a dead ball situation. In the process, he almost broke his leg. He’s a Goddamn hero though.

Most people believe this started with Kevin Garnett, but I swear Rasheed Wallace did this back in college, right? Anyone back me up here? Regardless of who the alpha goaltender is, Russ is now the expert. Russ is the guy who perfected it. He’s the hero the NBA deserves.

Also, HAHAHA.
