Russell Westbrook returned to the Oklahoma City Thunder last week just in time to help the team make a return trip to the NBA Finals, and you can already tell the difference that he makes on the floor, which was on display once again on Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

On this play, Westbrook came down with the ball, shook off the defenders and nailed the deep two-pointer, all while drawing the foul at the same time.

It was a beautiful play by one of the best in the game, bar none, but at quick glance, you have to wonder if Westbrook cleverly drew the foul with a well-executed flop.

What do you think? Was that a legitimate foul or was it a flop?
