After the NBA All-Star rosters were announced with team captains Stephen Curry and LeBron James "drafting" their teammates in something akin to a playground pick-up game. People on social media would have inevitably made a huge deal over whoever ended up going last in the draft. "Alphabetical order, man! Of course I was first!" None other than his opponent John Wall. All he saw was his name at the bottom of it, and he mistakenly believed LeBron had taken him with the last pick in the draft. Looks like that didn't sit too well with Westbrook, because he went out and dropped 46 points with 21 of them coming in the fourth quarter to close it out.

Westbrook has twice been named All-Star Game MVP, but he was the only Thunder player selected as either a starter or reserve.

The Oklahoma City Thunder came into Thursday's game against the Washington Wizards riding a five game winning streak.

"But I see I was the last pick on the list", Westbrook said with a smile. I constantly try to keep finding ways to find different things about people, about their families, about their struggles, their journey.
