Russell Westbrook Wins Friends And Influences Teammates With Free In-N-Out Burgers

Russell Westbrook was obviously on a mission on Monday night, scoring 20 points, ripping down 13 rebounds and dishing out 15 assists in the Thunder’s 131-116 victory over Sacramento. After Saturday night’s heartbreaker against Steph Curry and Golden State, Somebody was going to pay, and that somebody was Sacramento. You know who else paid? Westbrook himself.

That’s right, he paid for dinner. And not just dinner … In-N-Out burgers!

And this was for a regular season win over Sacramento. Imagine if they had beaten the Warriors. They would be having In-N-Out or Shake Shack or Five Guys burgers free for the rest of the season. (And then they’d probably lose in the playoffs because the whole team would suddenly get inexplicably slow.)

Okay, I’m going away now because I’ve probably just started a huge argument over which burger is better: In-N-Out vs. Shake Shack vs. Five Guys. I’ve only had two of these. So let’s just leave it at this: Russell Westbrook is very thoughtful to pay for everybody’s burgers. And In-N-Out is very thoughtful to commit to antibiotic free hamburgers.
