If you’ve ever wondered what fuels the machine that is NBA superstar Russell Westbrook, we have an answer.

It’s a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. 

But not just any ol’ PB&J—no, Westbrook likes his pregame snack a certain way.

He broke it down on Jimmy Kimmel Live:

  • Toasted wheat bread
  • Skippy peanut butter
  • Strawberry jelly
  • Sliced in half
  • An occasional touch of butter—on both sides

During the same interview, Westbrook talked about his affinity for Taylor Swift and one-hour pregame naps. Anything past 60 minutes makes him "sluggish."

He then went on to discuss winning a championship with new Oklahoma City Thunder coach Billy Donovan and breaking Michael Jordan’s triple-double record:

If he achieves either of those, we'll know what put him over the top—probably the extra butter.
