Russell Westbrook has agreed to a five-year, $205M contract extension with OKC, league sources tell ESPN.

On Friday, Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Russell Westbrook agreed to a five-year contract extension worth $205 million, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski

September 29 also happens to be Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant's birthday. 

As expected, users across Twitter didn't seem to believe Westbrook's putting pen to paper on this particular day was pure coincidence:
