Russell Westbrook broke out Shammgod crossover on Suns to land 22nd assist

That is sick.

Poor Tyler Ulis didn’t know what hit him when Russell Westbrook broke out the Shammgod crossover on his way into the paint, just before dishing off to Steven Adams for the dunk. That was Westbrook’s 22nd assist of the night, part of another triple-double that helped get the Thunder a win on the road.

The move is named after God Shammgod, the former Providence star (who had a brief NBA career) who had handles as good as anyone who played the game. Shammgod is now a player development specialist with the Mavericks. And you know he smiled when he saw that move.
