Russell Westbrook Tries to Dunk on Blake Griffin, Fails

The above video shows one of the saddest scenes in an NBA game I’ve seen in quite a while. Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook is one heck of an athlete, but I think he overestimated his skills on this play.

On Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Clippers, Westbrook caught the ball on the right wing and attempted to go all Blake Griffin on…Blake Griffin. He failed miserably and picked up a charge in the process.

In fact, Westbrook nearly air-balled his dunk attempt. Luckily the Thunder came away with a 114-91 win over the Clippers.

Hey, here’s an “A” for effort Russell, nice try. Now don’t ever freaking do it again.

  2. At the game, it looked a bit like dunking on Griffin was not really the intent. It looked like more of a statement that Westbrook wasn’t afraid to make contact. That might be part of the reason Griffin was physically dominated all night.
