Russell Westbrook Video: Watch Thunder's Star Break Luke Ridnour's Ankles

Kyle VassaloFeatured Columnist IVNovember 19, 2016

Russell Westbrook embarrassed Luke Ridnour so horribly, it was impossible not to feel a little sympathetic for him.

Westbrook started showing off his handles, and Ridnour didn't stand a chance. Ridnour's defense was almost hard to watch, and the crossover that sent him to the floor put him out of his misery.

It's unclear whether he stepped on someone else's shoe or just ate it because of the filthy moves Westbrook was putting down, but frankly, it doesn't matter.

This is one for the highlight tape and embodies everything we missed about the NBA. It may be a shortened season, but plays like this ensure fans get their fill of jaw-dropping action this year.

The Thunder are one of the most exciting teams in the NBA, and they have a serious shot at winning an NBA championship.

The team is packed full of young and veteran players and overloaded with talent. This team could easily have multiple All-Stars and a ring when this season is all said an done, and they'll entertain along the way.

It's a shame that Ridnour's ankles are no more, but if it's any consolation, he won't be the last defender to fall victim to Westbrook's lethal crossover.
