Russell Westbrook does not need any music to have a good time dancing these days.
Westbrook is clearly channeling his inner Andy Dufresne, as all the tunes he will ever need are playing inside of his head. It is all a part of staying loose when you play for a losing team. No matter who is on the hardwood, no matter if a game is currently playing or not, Westbrook is and always will be a star. He may be a basketball savant, but he is also an unquestioned superstar.
Russell Westbrook continues to dance to the beat of his own silent drum
Westbrook is on his third team in as many years. The former NBA MVP with the Oklahoma City Thunder now stars in the nation’s capital for one of the worst teams in the league. Washington is 10 games below .500 through the middle of February. Only the Detroit Pistons and the Minnesota Timberwolves have worse winning percentages to this point in the 2020-21 NBA season.
Ultimately, you have to applaud Westbrook’s impromptu, “I-can’t’-believe-this-is-even-happening” dance moves. Well, when you play for the Wizards, anything and everything is possible. All we know is there is no place like home. NBA fans may have been off to see the Wizards, but all they got was the dysfunctional Wizards of aww, shucks, smoke and mirrors.
Next time something totally awkward happens in your life, just smile and do The Westbrook!
