Russell Westbrook’s alley-oop from Kevin Durant was jaw-dropping (Video)
Russell Westbrook may only be 6’3″ and 187 pounds, but he’s still one the most forceful dunkers in the NBA. Late in the second quarter of the Thunder-Kings game Friday night, Westbrook took a pass from Kevin Durant and threw down a ridiculous one-handed alley-oop with tremendous power. My mouth was literally wide open after watching the sick play.
Apparently so was Durant’s. He told The Oklahoman’s Darnell Mayberry after the game that Westbrook’s dunk could be the best of the year.
“That was one of the most athletic plays I’ve ever seen,” Durant said. “I think it was probably the dunk of the year. He’s had plenty of highlights. But this one was unreal because of how high he jumped and how much he cocked it back.
“At 6-3, I’ve never seen nothing like that,” Durant said.
