Enes Kanter flexes historic Russell Westbrook memorabilia from Thunder days
If you’re a fan of NBA memorabilia, then you’re probably going to like what Enes Kanter has in his possession. The 6-foot-10 big man, currently with the Portland Trail Blazers, recently posted an image of a box score report of Russell Westbrook’s historic triple-double from their time together as teammates with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Kanter flexed his piece of basketball history on Twitter:
This is going to be worth lots of money one day 😄

It’s uncertain how Enes Kanter ended up with the piece of NBA history–assuming that it is in his possession–but what we can say is that we have to agree with his assessment about its potential market value. As a matter of fact, that signed scorer’s report from the Thunder-Nuggets game could probably go for a few thousand dollars if Kanter decides to sell it off on eBay today.
Aside from the fact that Westbrook hit the game-winning shot against the Denver Nuggets on that fateful day, and also that he broke the single-season triple-double record, you also have to note that he put up a 50-point, 16-rebound, and 10-assist triple-double for the Thunder in the contest. This also happens to be during the 2016-17 season wherein Russ was named as the league MVP.
Needless to say, there’s a lot of history, not just for the Thunder, on this small piece of paper.
Right now, though, Russell Westbrook is plying his trade with the Washington Wizards. He may no longer be the MVP candidate he once was, but he’s still stacking up triple-doubles (and breaking records as well) virtually every single night. Some things just never change.
