Russell Westbrook makes case for mvp award
We have heard Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, LeBron James or Chris Paul may be the regular season MVP so far, but the player who may not be getting enough consideration is Russell Westbrook.

Check out this recent video of him making a case for regular season mvp with a thunderous slam dunk.
