Russell Westbrook Dunks All Over Argentina’s Juan Gutiérrez (VIDEO)

Is this the best throwdown of the Olympics?

Earlier today, Team USA took home a 126-97 victory over Argentina, a win that was accentuated by this insane Russell Westbrook dunk over Juan Gutiérrez. Yeah, Russ got T’ed up seconds later for staring down the Argentinian guard he put on a poster, but that was a small price to pay for this highlight.

    Meh. Gutiérrez didn’t jump and moved out of the way, hardly a dunk all over him. Nice dunk still but as usual, misleading headline from SLAM.

    The defense stepped up but backed right away. Yes he got dunked on definitely. You don’t step up you might as well sit down.

  • LA Huey

    LOL 25 pt lead in the 4th and this fool is putting his team in hysterics with meaningless dunk. That was awesome. USA All Day!

  • BallsDeep

    Sick dunk and Kobe looking real old out there man.

  • str8 from samoa

    dam i wanted to see the replay of the dunk!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZsj9ceoHO4 L Dribble

    Reminded me of the ‘dunk of death’ but then I watched the dunk of death and realised Westbrook needed about another foot of vertical to match it. Still awesome – can’t believe the non stop foul calls on USA from the referees and still they destroyed Argentina – killing the game, not helped by the eternally flopping Ginobli. This dunk along with the KD three from outer city limits were a welcoming eff U to the referees.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZsj9ceoHO4 L Dribble

    I thought this was up there with the ‘dunk of death’ – until I watched the dunk of death again. Can’t believe the non-stop foul calls on USA – killed the game. Still, KD’s three shot from somewhere between OKC and London basically told the refs to STFU.

    … he didn’t even jump. Just sort of slid out of the way. Nice dunk but he really didn’t dunk ‘on’ anybody

  • buzz

    @magic man it was soo funny! Those guys are having a blast out there

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xC03hmS1Brk Max

    Man Iggy was having fun when KD went off.
    First with that slide on the bench and another time he was playing guitar with those 3ball signals lol.

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    Wait…I thought international ball was physical. Why didn’t that argentinan cat put Westbrook on his a** when he came into the lane?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xC03hmS1Brk Max

    ^Teh score?

  • T-Money

    baller – usually i’d be with you with american jingoism but them argentines are a bunch of punks (not the country, only the hoops squad). scola, nocioni and this gutierrez dude are some of the dirtiest players i’ve ever seen, they deserve the taunting.

  • miagus23

    @baller, lol dude your so jealous of us! Your probably from Nigeria!

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    Not super impressive, but crucial due to the dirty “ball-slap” done to Carmelo about 2 minutes prior on his 3 by that greasy Argentine. Those dudes look dirty and greasy, like they are all from New Jersey or something ha! The armpit of America

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    It’s basketball. NBA players are confident, especially the superstars. Has nothing to do with the country. International players are confident as well…just not as good as the U.S. team. Dirk Nowitzki would fall right in line if he were playing on this U.S. team and he’s not American.

  • T-man

    KD has been doing the shimmy for some time now! Hit it! http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/1268566/awwyeah.gif

  • pposse

    that stare down embodies the exact reasons why i got love for Westbrook. That man is not someone you want to cross, he a baaad man!

  • T-Money

    oh and can someone enlighten me as to why iggy’s dunk didn’t count? i understand the ball bounced on his head and went back up through the rim but it had fully cleared the net before hitting his head!

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    International refs stink, that’s why.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    The Durant dance was the best part of the highlight.

  • http://thahiphopcorner.com Kevin

    Team USA started clowning Argentina in the second half.

  • Ses

    I guess traveling isn’t called in international play! I’m just saying!

  • LP

    this dunk was great?

  • franko

    @Kevin how about the first half?

  • MaynAttraction

    Dirty (ba)stards should have gotten taunted. When the U.S. played them in the warmups to the Olympics Manu Genobli horse collared Lebron James, could have ended his career if he had landed wrong. Glad Westbrook showed them up, and just because you tuck tail and run out of the way doesnt me you didn’t get dunked on. Actually it makes you look like an even bigger punk A(s)(s) go on and get dunked on like a man.
