Russell Westbrook sings along to ‘Die Young’ by Ke$ha (VIDEO)

Jan 19, 2013, 7:35 PM EDT

We see players bobbing their heads or lip-syncing in layup lines all the time before games get started, but rarely do we get a closeup of someone singing along to one of his current favorite jams.

Russell Westbrook was caught on camera doing just that on Friday, clearly enjoying himself while singing along to “Die Young” from Ke$ha.

The musical selection undoubtedly motivated Westbrook, as he went on to drop 31 points alongside Kevin Durant‘s career-high 52 in the Thunder’s overtime win over the Mavericks.

    Odd, but who cares?

    Only PG more fun to watch is D. Rose. Gotta love his game.

      They are the two fastest PG’s from baseline to baseline.


      Watching CP3 and Brandon Jennings master the art of dribbling – toy with guys like they are puppets on a string, while breaking their ankles – OFF !

      Has to be the most fun.

        Mike Conley might have the best handles in the NBA (you should watch some of his dribbling drills – it’s remarkable) but he doesn’t understand how to use his dribbling skills as much as Chris Paul.

        Chris Paul is all about the hesitation dribbles…he doesn’t like to test his opponents’ speed like Westbrook; rather he loves to get guys slightly off-balance with his shiftiness and then he attacks. It’s really hard to recover on an NBA guard once you’re moving in the wrong direction.

        CP3, Kyrie and Rondo are the three best PG’s in the NBA, in that order (I’m saying that despite being a C’s fan, Kyrie’s that good)

    Ke$ha is such a tramp.

    I’m a big fan of Russell Westbrook’s style of play.

    I’m not a big fan of Russell Westbrook’s taste in music.

    What’s the point of hating Ke$ha? It’s stupid, fun pop music and that’s all it’s supposed to be.

    Russell Wilson is awesomely wierd btw, love his wacko sense of style
