Russell Westbrook baffled the Suns defense with a perfect Shammgod

Sunday December 18th, 2016

Russell Westbrook had yet another triple-double on Saturday—his 13th of the year—and capped it off in style with one of the coolest moves you can pull off in sports.

Westbrook blew by Suns forward Devin Booker, then pulled out a Shammgod move—named after former professional basketball player God Shammgod—on Tyler Ulis. After shaking him out of his shoes, Westbrook dished to Steven Adams for his 22nd assist of the game.

Westbrook finished with 26 points and 11 rebounds to go along with the 22 assists. It was the first 20-point, 20-assist triple-double in the NBA in 18 years.
