Westbrook has apparently decided to start dunking on everyone, a decision which I fully support. Emeka Okafor is the latest victim:

It’s pretty obvious who the most important player on the Thunder is. Keep killing, Russ.
The most electrifying man in sports entertainment!
Although, this was about a 6 compared to his 10 on Battier.
Can we start throwing in names for the slam dunk contest already ?
1. Nate Robinson.
2. Russell Westbrook.
3. Blake Griffin.
4. Derrick Rose.
He’s on fire!
@Jason – I don’t know that Russell would be a good slam dunk contestant. All his dunks are the same dunk and it looks like he barely reaches the rim. Granted they are explosive for in game dunks and they do look impressive for a short PG.
i really dont want blake in the dunk contest as hes an in game dunker ala shawn kemp.he needs a forehead or 2 to rest his ballbags on.
He does this on 2K11 all the time. At least for me.
wasn’t exactly “on” emeka but damn good nonetheless. russ is killing it
hey, whats an okafor??
@co-sign Allen, its like his nba2k11 virtual counterpart and he are one.
Is it too late to start the Let Russell Dunk campaign?
I remember being called an idiot for saying Westbrook is better than Rose. O, how quickly things change…
Bodie! *spits thru teeth*
slamdunk contest 1.blake girffin,2.dwight howard,3.josh smith,4.j rich,my nigga jr smith
not as nice as the battier dunk
@Kap, no one says youre right.
la huey, he does kinda look like bodie
I got you, Kap.
if u remember right i was right there with u gettin called a moron and an idiot for saying westbrook was better.. and i was also criticized for declaring westbrook a better dunker than rose.. look now haters
umm…has ANYONE been paying attention to what rose has been doing. 5 out of the 6 games hes had 30 or more, averaging about 7 assists. these include the phoenix game where they came back from a 20+ point deficit.
go ask tyreke evans how he feels.
and their statlines are damn enar identical.
difference is, rose has no durant. for now. idiots.
Yeah why are yall saying Westbrook is clearly better like Rose hasn’t been killing all year. These dunks are nice, but the one Rose put down on the dude from the Suns last year tops all of Westbrooks from this year.
Who cares who is better? lets all agree that the point guard position is the deepest position in the league.
No one is denying how good Rose is playing. But if their offensive statlines are identical while D-Rose is the # 1 option on his team, while Westbrook is the # 2 option on his then, it is a reasonable discussion cause Westbrook is clearly better defensively and passing.
You don’t know D-Rose personally. Stop being so sensitive with the name calling and stuff. Work on your punctuation and spelling.

^yes it is dfrance21.. but at the same time (and im pretty sure im speaking for more than jus myself on this) i do not believe rose would be near as good or put up near the numbers that he does now if he was on the same team as durant
you cant use the “he has durant” excuse right now, because he is clearly even outplaying durant right now.
I see you, DavidR.
And guys, that’s a tough comparison of Westbrook and Rose. You could argue Westbrook has the luxury of not being keyed in by opposing defenses thanks to the presence of Durant. Conversely, you could say Rose gets more opportunities to go off because he and his team knows they will live and die by his offensive production.
MAN FUK ROSE. WESTBROOK KILLIN EVERY1. KEVIN DURANTS TEAM? NT ANYMORE HAHA
chyea la huey. russell is a smart-@$$ pawn.
we just gotta wait till the bulls play the thunder. but, durant green and boozer have to be injured.
My order of best PGs: D-Will, CP3, Rondo, Rose/Westbrook (sorry they are that close in my mind). D-Will and CP3 are at another tier however…
It’s cool to see Rose and Russ do they thang…got similar styles and have been training together for years. In terms of excitement factor, Rose and Russ are at the top.
ouch, my “punctuation and grammar” skills. did i not correct myself?
i don’t even see that argument. this is silly.
D-Will number 1 at the mo for sure. Keeps playing like this and Utah finish well with a good record, definately a MVP candidate.
Long way to go peoples…
@Kap Rose is better, nothing’s changed
RW needs to enter the dunk contest.
@ omar and c_cantrell Read LA Hueys post. You guys are just speculating. You could easily argue the opposite point, that he gets more opportunities because teams are focusing on Durant. I can sit here and say if Rose played with Durants, its KDs numbers that would drop. Its all speculation.
I’m sure Durant’s numbers would go down if he played with Rose because Rose isn’t great at setting up his teammates, not as good as Westbrook is.
