Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder (16-7) have unexpectedly been booming this season. The Thunder are currently the second seed in a tough Western Conference while Westbrook is nearly averaging yet another triple-double season.
Through his career, the former MVP has always played with an unmatched intensity on the court. An intense fire that fans love and rivals hate. This year Westbrook has added a new move to his arsenal, further making opponents despise him more. He has mastered the art of cradling.
From the recent birth of his twins “Skye” and “Jordyn,” to physically dominating smaller guards defending him, on and off the court, Westbrook has been rocking babies to sleep all season.

Westbrook was a guest Tuesday night on the Tonight Show Featuring Jimmy Fallon, Westbrook explained his ‘rock-a-baby’ celebration.
‘I’m pretty big for my position, I would say I’m probably stronger than other guys in my position. So when I have smaller guys on me, you have to treat them like babies.’
