Russell Westbrook posterizes Enes Kanter, and also the Phoenix Suns

Russell Westbrook adds to his catalog of ridiculousness with an alley-oop over his own teammate Enes Kanter

Russell Westbrook led a furious comeback against the desperate Phoenix Suns, and on a memorable fast break, Westbrook served notice that he was on the hunt. D.J. Augustin threw an alley-oop at the rim, and Westbrook brought it home on the Suns...and his own teammate Enes Kanter. From ESPN:

The Oklahoma City Thunder locker room opened up postgame, and upon entering,Russell Westbrook was holding court, loudly letting Enes Kanter hear all about it.

"If you wanted it, you got to get up higher than that!" he jokingly told Kanter. "My bad, my bad, my bad."

Good to see Kanter is able to laugh off the moment in the wake of a big win. Part of me wonders though if this was one of those moments in life where your view of self is violently met with the sudden reality of, "I can't do that."

Will Enes Kanter try and fail to dunk over Russell Westbrook during the next Thunder practice?
