Russell Westbrook was born November 12, 1988 and is a basketball player drafted by the Seattle SuperSonics which would later relocate to become the Oklahoma City Thunder. He was the starting point guard for the UCLA Bruins men's basketball team while Darren Collison was injured. When Collison returned he moved to the shooting guard.
He is known primarily for his athleticism, in the form of high flying dunks in transition and his lock down defense. A virtual no-name in his freshman year, averaging 3.4 points per game, his stats and his potential exploded in his sophomore year, when he averaged 12.5 points per game. Westbrook was not able to dunk until his senior year in High School.
