Video: Malcolm Brogdon dunks on Russell Westbrook, stares him down
For Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon, it is no secret that the 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year has some insane athleticism. In Friday night’s game against the red-hot Oklahoma City Thunder, he showed us exactly why he is such a dynamic player.
Midway through the second quarter of the game at Chesapeake Energy Arena, Brogdon stole the ball from the reigning Most Valuable Player in Russell Westbrook and threw down an emphatic one-handed slam dunk at the other end. Westbrook, who tried to block the dunk, came up empty and was stared down by Brogdon.
A video clip of the play was posted on Twitter to Bleacher Report, which can be viewed below:

This isn’t the first time Brogdon has dunked on an NBA superstar. In fact, last season during his rookie year, he dunked on Kyrie Irving and LeBron James in the same game.
The Bucks, who erased a 20-point deficit last night to stun the Minnesota Timberwolves in a 102-96 victory at BMO Harris Bradley Center, got off to a very fast start against the Thunder and led by as many as 22 points in the first quarter.
The Thunder, who have won their last six straight contests, are finally starting to play to their true potential but have to climb their way out of a hole in tonight’s game.
