So in my absence a strange thing developed here in BaB; everyone starting hating Russell Westbrook. And to be honest, I do not quite get it.
Sure, he looks like of like a beaver and a duck in an odd blue uniform. And sure he's a bit of a chucker and a spaz. No doubt he gets too excited over making an average mid-range jumper and he picks up dumb technical fouls because he cannot calm himself. True true, the unreasonable comparisons to the MVP Derrick Rose were even getting under my skin and yes he really does have some asinine turnovers. But really... are all those things reason to hate the guy?
Anyhow, we shall see how many free throws he, Kevin Durant and the Robot Dirk Nowitski get in Game 2. I think they'll go to break the record Dirk just set last game. I am not sure which is more amazing, 24 attempts in a game or making all 24 attempts!
