Russell Westbrook and the Thunder melt down in crunch time again

Authentic Youth Cole Hamels Jersey One day after Kawhi Leonard and Mike Conley gave the basketball universe its best game of the season, James Harden and Russell Westbrook followed up with a Game 4 for the ages.

The materials don’t sound inexpensive either. The ZO2s are embedded with an Ortholight insole, a full bed of shock-absorbent material, microfiber python texture, and a Delorean finish.

Another reason: Big Baller Brand could be targeting a specific clientele. A $495 sneaker is by no means cheap, and LaVar Ball knows that. In their release, reported by SLAM Magazine, BBB seems to have targeted its own niche market:

BBB is aiming for Lonzo’s signature sneaker to tap into a new market—above the athletic performance kicks from the likes of Nike, Jordan, adidas and Under Armour, but below the high-end designer shoes of Gucci, Prada or Louis Vuitton.

Oklahoma City has come down to the same sad dilemma all season: right or wrong, they routinely ask Westbrook to do the impossible. Often, he actually does it, which is why he will likely be revealed as the league’s MVP. The arguments are so close, but when you often see a player do impossible things, it’s hard to say he’s not deserving.
The numbers don’t like when it comes to how much the Thunder really struggle when Russell Westbrook comes out of the game.

In real terms, when Westbrook sat this series, the Thunder were outscored 137-79 in 45.5 minutes of total court time. They lost by 58 points without Westbrook playing. For the entire series, Houston only outscored Oklahoma City by 43 points.

The only thing left for Westbrook in the 2016-2017 season is to see who the MVP trophy belongs to on June 26.
