Russell Westbrook’s time with the OKC Thunder has come to an end. It is time to decide his crowning moment as a member of the Thunder. That will be up to you, the fans!

Russell Westbrook was traded to the Houston Rockets on Thursday night after spending the past 11 years with the OKC Thunder organization.

It’s the only organization he has ever known. Now he is gone, and the initial era of OKC Thunder basketball is officially over as the organization heads for their first-ever rebuild and likely a losing season for just the second time in franchise history. (debut season 23-59).

Through his 11 year tenure, Westbrook had a ton of long-lasting memories. He was the face of the franchise, and his name will forever be associated with the city, the state, and the organization.

Russell Westbrook made fans jaws drop since he entered the league, and no one thought this day would come, but for now, his tenure is over in OKC. Will he come back to finish his career? That is yet to be seen.

So what is Russell Westbrook’s best moment? What is the moment that fans and media members and players alike will point to and say that embodies the Thunder and Russell Westbrook?

There are simply too many to pick from, I mean the flip shot was the first memory but how about the buzzer-beater in Denver?

Every OKC Thunder fan loves Russell Westbrook. Do you know what else everyone loves? Brackets. One more thing everyone loves? March Madness.

So with too many memories to pick from, I have decided to pull 64 Russell Westbrook memories and put them into a March Madness bracket and let you the fans decide which moment is Westbrook’s career-defining moment in Oklahoma City. For details on how you participate and decide the moment — see below.

Just like the NCAA Tournament, we will split this into four regions. each region has 16 teams (moments), and the matchups will be decided by seeds and as they advance they will do so in the same order as the NCAA March Madness tournament each year.
