Russell Westbrook Out: The World Is Ending.

Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City ThunderRussell Westbrook is human after all. The Oklahoma City star has never missed a game. Not in high school, not in college, and certainly not since he came into the league in 2008. Westbrook suffered  torn cartilage in his right knee though we do not know to what extent. He will certainly be out for the rest of this series and most likely the next as well. Without knowing the true extent of the surgery it has been hard for experts to put a timetable on his recovery. This is a horrible loss for the Thunder. They must now go into Houston and try to keep hold of this series which will be much harder without their thoroughbred. Westbrook was sixth in the league in scoring this season and averaged the most assists of anyone in the top 10. The Rockets will certainly try to expose Reggie Jackson for the young point he is. This series is about to get interesting Will Durant go off for 50 a game? Will Lin play? Will this be McHale’s last coaching gig? Will Kendrick Perkins continue to get away with two-handed holds on screens?
