Russell Westbrook walked through the corridor of the “Chesapeake Arena” as an opponent for the first time in 11 years.
He received a standing ovation, while he was entering the floor getting a great video tribute in the process from the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Despite his game-high 34 points, the Houston Rockets came up short against the home team(92-113). After the game, the superstar of the Rockets talked to media about his experience returning to the OKC.
“Man, some things you can’t put into words, just because I’ve been here so long, so many great memories, great people.Obviously, the best fans in the world, because they come with it, and tonight they came with it”.
“The organization, Sam [Presti], Mr. [Clay] Bennett, they do an amazing job of just making you feel home. And I felt like I was home.”
“I don’t regret one thing being here in Oklahoma City,” Westbrook said. “I don’t regret signing back. I don’t regret staying here. I don’t regret anything that I did here. I feel like I left everything out on the floor every single night and did what I could for the city.”
