Russell Westbrook mocks Kevin Durant as he talks about the Super Bowl

Kevin Durant spent Super Bowl Sunday in a place that most basketball players don’t find themselves: On the sidelines.

Durant was a credentialed photographer for the Players’ Tribune during the Broncos’ 24-10 victory over the Panthers. You’d think diversifying his intellectual portfolio would bring about some added respect for one of the NBA’s best players. Apparently, Russell Westbrook isn’t buying any of that.

It makes you wonder how a play-by-play analyst might break down Westbrook’s mimicry: That’s one heck of a mocking session, Jim. You see how fundamental he is in the way he moves his head and uses his whole body to mimic? Just textbook. Let’s see it again.

Westbrook wasn’t done, either. He kept going and going and going…until Durant caught him, that is.

Russ’ motor extends beyond the basketball court, apparently.
