Russell Westbrook: Scoring title doesn’t mean sh-t to me (Video)

Russell Westbrook sealed up the NBA scoring title on Wednesday night with 37 points in a win over the Timberwolves, but the Thunder still missed the playoffs because of the Pelicans beating the Spurs. As you might expect, winning the scoring title is no consolation for Westbrook.

After learning that the Thunder’s victory was not enough to get them to the postseason, Westbrook was asked what being the NBA’s leading scorer meant to him.

“Sh-t,” he told reporters. “It doesn’t mean nothing. Good job, hooray. I’m at home watching other teams play. It doesn’t mean nothing.”

Given some of the recent exchanges Westbrook has had with reporters, we’re almost surprised he reacted so calmly.

Westbrook finished the regular season with an average of 28.1 points per game to go along with 8.6 assists and 7.3 rebounds. He definitely deserves MVP consideration, though he will likely finish behind Stephen Curry, James Harden and possibly LeBron James.
