Happy 30th birthday, Russell Westbrook!

And he doesn’t look a day over 29.

W. Bennett Berry

Russell Westbrook, fearless leader of the Thunder, celebrates his 30th birthday today. Perhaps it could be said he threw himself an early birthday party on June 30th, but it is officially November 12, 1988 that the future king of the triple-double was born.

He who was once a boy is now a man, a husband, and father who is expecting twins in the near future. What is perhaps most fascinating about the man is how radically different he is on the court and off, but both parts make the whole. We are lucky to watch his career play out.

Enjoy his top 30 plays here, and drop your own personal favorites in the comments below.
