The Why Not? region matchups for the round of 32:

1) 20-20-20 vs 8) First All-Star Game MVP: After his close friend passed Russell Westbrook posted 20 points, 20 rebounds, and 20 assists, a special tribute to his friend and the tear-jerking moment, which will win in a landslide over a fun, but ultimately meaningless All-Star game MVP.

2) Averaging a Triple-Double for three straight years vs 7) Playing playoff basketball with a torn meniscus: Playing on a torn meniscus for an entire half of playoff basketball is a gutsy move and it sparked the soon to be a long line of beef in the point guards career.

14) MVP Acceptance vs 6) Playing with a literally dent in his face: While it was cool to see Russ on stage lifting an MVP trophy, playing with a literal dent in his face to try and pick up the pieces of a Thunder team that was already incredible hurt was amazing.

4) “I’m Coming!” vs 12) Self-made replays: While both of these moments will never be forgotten by die-hard Thunder fans, it is clear that him screaming “I’m Coming!” to Kevin Durant after KD turned his back on Westbrook and the city, will live on forever and stand the test of time.

My Predictions:

20-20-20, Playing with a torn meniscus, Playing with a dent in his face, “I’m Coming!”
