Russell Westbrook: Why not?

A la Bobby Kennedy, Russell Westbrook has no time for idle talk.  Rather than “look at things the way they are and ask why,” both “dream of things that never were, and ask why not?”

Westbrook's penchant for beating the odds is in full force this season.  Well on his way to MVP status, his triple-double stats already eclipse those of “any player in a single
season” since Wilt Chamberlain’s 1968 record.

As the lone Thunder superstar since Kevin Durant left, Westbrook has also kept his team in the running for playoffs.  What is it that motivates him game after game?  Some say competition, others claim revenge.

Westbrook states otherwise:  I’m inspired every time I wake up in the morning.  I’m blessed to have the job I have and grateful for the things I have, and that’s what inspires me.
