Watch the second block.

Get off your high horse. Falling on your *** trying to block an after the whistle shot is just flat out Russell Westbrook at his best-being an idiot.

would have been even funnier if he would have gotten a very small injury which would force him to leave the game

Yeah I was thinking about that also. Something minor enough to send him to the locker room for the night, but have him fine by the following morning

I have no problem blocking an after the whistle shot, no reason to risk the other guy getting into a rhythm after it.

But if you are going to block it, don't get your hand caught in the net and fall on your ***.

Says the guy whose user name and avy are dedicated to one of history's greatest offenders of this!

:laugh:


Got no problem with this. Nor should anyone. Lots of guys do it. It's all in good fun.

Ironic in multiple ways.

I agree who cares?

But if he gets hurt doing it then he looks like a big moron but the same can be said when players chest bump ... I'm waiting for a ankle to snap after one of these days

I usually don't either but he blocked 1 before this (before they went to the bench), and ran back to block the 2nd one. Dude could've really gotten hurt, I think he's got to be smarter than that. Jumping vertically to block a shot is much safer than what he did.

It's like the time Charles Barkley hugged Kevin Johnson after Johnson hit a game winner and he ended up dislocating his (KJ's) shoulder.

I don't view this as being in good fun. I view it as being disrespectful, and they lost. He looks super arrogant, and pretty stupid.

I don't think this was that big a deal... He didn't want the opposing player to practice shooting during a pause in play. Not 100% sure if this is thread worthy but there it is Westy falling on his @$$.

How does blocking the shot stop a guy from practicing a shot? The shot was already practiced at that point. :shrug:

I remember when Rashard Lewis was on the Sonics one time he tried blocking a shot during the game and his finger got caught in the net, led to an injury. Easily could have happened here.

You can injure yourself doing anything athletic, or even non-athletic. Just ask the bowling alleys Andrew Bynum frequents. Doesn't mean you shouldn't ever do these things. He's just jumping to block a ball. That second one was a bit ambitious, but whatever. The odds of him getting hurt by simply jumping to block a ball with no one around him have to be significantly less than just about anything he's doing in between the whistles. It's a non-story. It's ALWAYS been a non-story. Hundreds and hundreds of players do this regularly. No reason to make it one now.

He's a dude with a weird motor, but this isn't something to be worrying about, at all. Probably not a fight anyone on the Thunder feel is worth picking.
