I think it’s safe to say that this is by far and away the biggest roster move in the NBA since the draft happened.

I was scrolling through my phone, saw this move and was a bit shocked. Wall is headed to Houston and Westbrook is coming to the Wizards.

I didn’t see that coming at all.

I’m a huge fan of Russell Westbrook. The man always keeps it real and doesn’t really have much of a filter.

He’s an absolutely electric scorer and he drops amazing quotes when it comes to his talent level. Now, he’s bringing that energy to the Washington Wizards.

I’ve lived in the Washington D.C. area for more than five years, and haven’t gone to a single Wizards game. If fans are allowed in, I might have to change that.

I would love to see Westbrook go off in person.
