November 12, 1988 – #0 for the Oklahoma City Thunder was born. Russell Westbrook was born in Long Beach, California and emulated his game like his favorite hooper, the great Magic Johnson. He went to Leuzinger High with a 5’8, 140lb frame as a freshman, but had the shoe size of a grown man at size 14! He didn’t start til his junior year, where he also sprocketed to a 6’3 beast of a point guard. He went on to lead the Bruins of UCLA and now is one of the top elite point guards in the league. Happy Birthday Russell Westbrook!
END THE LOCKOUT!
