One week to training camp… Russell Westbrook will once again kill the rim

The wait is almost over. We’re just a week away from training camp, and the start of the 2012-2013 NBA season. Basketball is almost back. As we get closer we’ll be bringing you reminders of why this game is awesome, what you’ve missed, and what to look forward to.

Russell Westbrook is proof that basketball can be violence can be art.

Some players don’t really put a lot of their personality into their game. Tim Duncan is robotic and clinical, when in reality he’s likeable and funny, for example. But you get the feeling watching him dunk that its’ always some sort of anger management. If he just kills that rim hard enough, people will see how good he is, stop questioning if he’s the problem with the Thunder, stop calling him Robin.

For the rest of us, though, it’s just fun.

    I’ll continue to think he’s a liability when he has his weekly 3-27 game and refuses to pass to Durant in the final five minutes of the fourth quarter.

      lol..i mean he will be a problem in the sense how shaq was a problem in his prime (of course not to that extent, but pretty much in that nature). not a negative “problem” .

    it will be interesting to see if the Thunder can finally win their first title after a few years of falling short…
