Russell Westbrook is not fair. 

When he gets a head of steam and decides to use the springs muscles running throughout his legs to elevate as high as Andrew Wiggins might in a pre-draft workout, he's absolutely unstoppable. If the rim could clench its teeth and wait for a devastatingly physical blow, it would. 

The San Antonio Spurs—who ultimately emerged with a 117-89 victory that soothes the pain of that dunk—found out the hard way during the first quarter. Westbrook, who's typically as maniacal as a feral beast, was even more ferocious than we've come to expect on the thunderous slam. 

Good luck pulling yourself away from that video before you wear out the replay button.
