Before the origination had a team name, color scheme or logo, Russell Westbrook was here. For 821 games, Westbrook did it all in a Thunder uniform. It’s nearly impossible to highlight all the top Westbrook moments, but here are a few that come to mind over the past 11 years:
The Flip Shot
Leading the Los Angeles Lakers 3-1 in the Western Conference Semifinals, Westbrook hit one of the most iconic shots in Thunder history. Tied at 70 with 4:13 to go in the third quarter, Westbrook darted in front of Ramon Sessions’ pass intended for Kobe Bryant, taking it coast to coast, flipping the ball up off the backboard with Sessions draped all over him to convert the and-one. To this day it was regarded as the loudest the ‘Peake ever got. It also solidified that the young Thunder had arrived.
