Russ was hosting a charity comedy show in Tulsa when he was traded.
He still faced the crowd and thanked Oklahoma ❤

These are my favorite moments in sports. When a player finds out they are being moved and the camera catches an candid clip of them. A breath of fresh air from the prepared statements we typically see from athletes.
The audio is a little tough due to the fact the crowd just found out their only remaining star was just moved. But you can hear Westbrook in the beginning of the clip say to the crowd, “you all probably have heard by now.” He wet on to thank the city as well.
Tough to lose the guy and add that cry baby bitch Chris Paul. Sounds like OKC fans won’t have to deal with him for too long though. Signs are pointing to him being traded by OKC for pennies on the dollar.
Could Chris Paul be coming to the Eastern Conference?
