Let’s get the obvious out of the way here: I’m angry.
People think they’ve seen me angry before. After I rack up 53 points, featuring repeated violent explosions to the rim, the media will often chalk it up to me reacting to some minuscule, perceived slight.
“Oh, some newspaper article called him ‘soft,’ Russell won’t forget that!”
“Oh, some podcaster said Westbrook is ‘erratic,’ look out tonight!”
You really think that stuff gets to me? Please. I’m Russell The Hulk Westbrook. When I’m angry, you’ll know. And by the way? I’m officially angry.
The original Hulk, played by Edward Norton of course, always said that you wouldn’t like it when he’s angry.
But with me? It actually just leads to some insanely entertaining basketball games!
I’m going to be angry when I torch the Warriors for 46-13-17 on their home floor. I’m going to be angry when I out-duel my former best friend Kevin Durant in a best-of-seven series that no one in Vegas gave us a prayer of winning. I’m going to be angry when I rip Damian Lillard to shreds for absolutely no reason.
(Sorry in advance, Dame. You’re a good dude, but Hulk anger always has collateral damage. Just be happy I’m not planning to destroy a city while fighting Loki.)
UPDATE: Lol guys, Steven Adams just texted me that he’s angry too. I saw this dude punch through a concrete wall while trying to kill a bee one time. But hey, good thing the Warriors have Zaza Pachulia defend him, lol.
