Thunder news: Russell Westbrook engaged Odell Beckham Jr. in a dance battle last week
Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook has a million reasons to dance, especially after news of his massive extension deal with the Jordan Brand. But it appears, he’s already started doing the salsa last week.
It is even reported by the New York Post’s Page Six that Westbrook and New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. engaged each other in a dance battle during a party thrown by EMM Group founders, Mark Birnbaum and Eugene Remm last Thursday in New York.
“Spies tell us the football and basketball players had a dance battle as Wyclef Jean performed onstage at Mark Birnbaum and Eugene Remm’s party.”
While there’s not much to make from this news, this doesn’t look too good on Beckham’s part. Citing ankle issues, Beckham sat out the Giants’ Week 1 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in a game that New York clearly could’ve used him with Eli Manning and the passing offense had a difficult time moving the chains.
As for Westbrook, this news of him finding a new dance partner must be tearing the heart of Cameron Payne.
