Here's Russell Westbrook. He's 6'4, athletic, really fast and likes to dunk all the time. Did I mention he's a point guard ? And here's Shane Battier. He's the charge-taking, no-stats-All-Starring, glue guy that plays great defense and does little things.

What happens when they meet in the lane? One flies through the air like a missle headed for a small city and the other just has to watch it. Observe:



The irony of Westbrook's massive cramjob is that Battier, in very Battier-like fashion, turned around and hit three crucial 3-pointers for the Rockets almost immediately after. Battier has been struggling from deep on the season, but went 4-6 for Houston Sunday to really key the Rockets 99-98 win over the Thunder.

So he may have been abused both physicaly and emotionally by Westbrook, but Battier responded. Typical. I'm sure Dick Vitale is somewhere nodding right now.
