Much like The Legendary Roots Crew, the Oklahoma City Thunder are built around two superstars.
In this analogy, Durant is Black Thought—the crazy-talented frontman who thrives as the centerpiece of the team but can be just as impressive by himself.
That makes Russell Westbrook OKC's ?uestlove, the flamboyant and equally ultratalented drummer who elevates the group to world-beating heights.
?uestbrook has both the on-court greatness and the amazing off-court quirkiness going for him. In fact, he often surpasses his nicknamesake in terms of ostentatiousness.
Andrew Sharp of Grantland (NSFW) recently found his way into Roc Nation's Kevin Durant Super Bowl Party at the 40/40 Club. Therein, Sharp offered this account of ?uestbrook's activity:
Russell Westbrook showed up wearing a designer shirt long enough to make you think he maybe bought it at a maternity store. For the five minutes he wasn’t in a VIP area, he was by the corner of the bar eating peanut M&Ms.
That's the kind of next-level anecdote ?uestbrook provides while he's recovering from knee surgery. When he's playing and putting his amazing postgame fashion on display while fielding questions, his dynamism knows no bounds.
Many thanks to @z_goldsmith12 for his help hopefully making you laugh. Please show your appreciation and give him a follow. You can also follow me @arealjoshcohen.
