VIDEO: Wizards star Russell Westbrook’s entire rage forces Bismack Biyombo to make a business decision
Russell Westbrook baptized Bismack Biyombo on Tuesday night as his Washington Wizards took on the Charlotte Hornets at the Capitol One Arena in DC. Westbrook did not give the Hornets big man a chance as he elevated over Biyombo for an insane facial.
Biyombo knew what was coming, but he also knew that he had to at least try and prevent Westbrook from throwing it down. Not long after though, Biyombo made a mid-air business decision to just let Russ do his thing (h/t ClutchPoints on Twitter):

You can clearly see Biyombo pulling out of the challenge in mid-air as he knew what was in store. This was a pretty sick jam, and it could have been much worse for Biyombo had he given his entire effort to try and stop Westbrook here. It could have easily been an and-1 for Westbrook, and for Biyombo, an even more embarrassing poster.
You know a player just got shamefully dunked on when he tries to sprint back to the opposite side of the floor as soon as the play ends. This was exactly what Biyombo tried to do after Russ put him in a body bag as he clearly wanted nothing to do with Westbrook and his post-jam flex/mean mug.
Unfortunately for Westbrook and the Wizards, who were without Bradley Beal again in this one, it was the Hornets who emerged with a 114-104 victory after a hard-fought encounter.
