You've got to be somewhat of a savage to average a triple-double for the entire season the way that Russell Westbrook did this year, joining Oscar Robertson as the only two players in NBA history to accomplish that feat.
But Russ's No-Fs-given style extends off the court, too.
Last night, the Oklahoma City Thunder's All-Star point guard and arguable front-runner to win the NBA MVP lied about his wife's birthday to a restaurant just to get a free dessert.
"This is what happens when you come to the restaurant, you're trying to get a free dessert. You lie, tell 'em it's your wife's birthday," Westbrook said, as part of his pregnant wife Nina's Snapchat story. "Haha, woo! Happy birthday, sugar! You got free dessert babe!"
Having pocketed $26.5 million this season, Westbrook obviously didn't need to pull this stunt, but did so anyway ... and people loved him for it.
Here's the Snapchat of Russ finessing the restaurant and all the ways people adored him for it. Nina's reaction, though? Priceless.
Even though his Thunder have been eliminated from the playoffs, Russ just recorded another steal. And this play was an instant fan-favorite.
Just ... why?
Long live Brodie!
No more debating. Russ is your MVP. Sorry, James Harden.
The latter tweet refers to Westbrook being eligible to sign a five-year, super max extension worth over $200 million with the Thunder. Last summer, the dynamic point guard inked a three-year, $85 million extension with OKC.
Come on ... people have to find the humor in the free-dessert play. It's too funny.
We bet the All-Star made one server's day.
He can do no wrong.
