for my second assignment I chose to create a GIF of what, is in my opinion, the best sports play from the past year. The best play I’ve seen in sports this past year was EASILY when Russell Westbrook, of the Oklahoma City Thunder, broke Oscar Robertson‘s all time Triple-Double record.
Westbrook broke Robertson’s record in the 4th quarter and received a standing ovation; it is not common for a record as accomplished as Robertson’s to be broken. After Westbrook achieved his 42nd triple double of the season, he found his team down 103-105 to the Denver Nuggets. With only 4 seconds left, Steven Adams passed the ball to Westbrook, who immediately threw up a near impossible three-point shot. To everyone’s amazement, the shot fell in and my jaw hit the floor. I am no Oklahoma City Thunder fan (I prefer the Washington Wizards), however, the effort and finish by Westbrook was of nothing I have seen before in basketball.
