When Kevin Durant got injured, fans and NBA heads alike were salivating over the fact that Russell Westbrook was going to be the #1 option for the Oklahoma City Thunder. A lot of people were taking shots at the explosive Thunder point guard, saying that he would take 482 shots per game (okay, I said that, too). All these memes (captioned pictures) of Russell Westbrook were made thereafter.
Anthony Slater of the Oklahoman then asked Westbrook about the memes. His response:

I wish I didn’t know what memes are, either, because 95% of them are not funny. But, hey, that’s just me. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to seeing the Thunder without Kevin Durant, as much as we want him to heal as soon as possible.
Go get ’em, Russ.
