Russell Westbrook Interview with Walid Ibrahim

This week we have Walid “Wale” Ibrahim. I met him my sophomore year at Cazenovia College where we bonded over 2k and hooping almost every weekend. Hands down one of the nicest and talented people I met at caz as well as tall. You can catch him now giving motivational speeches and spitting fire freestyles on his social medias.

Q: Who are you?

1. My name is Walid Ibrahim and I am 22 years old. You can find me on Twitter/IG:@8ighth__, and Facebook:Walid Wale

Q:How did you find out about Russell Westbrook?

2. I Found out about Russell Westbrook while I became a Kevin Durant fan right before they transitioned to the Thunder.

Q:First reaction when you saw him play?

3. First reaction: never seen anything like him, ever. Especially at that height. The way he would try to break the rim with every dunk.

Q:Favorite game by the Brodie?

4. Favorite Russ Game: EASILY when he hit a fucking BUZZER BEATER over the Denver Nuggets to win the game while MAKING HISTORY with averaging a triple double in the SAME GAME. Legendary.

Q:Player's Biggest Weakness?

5. He's his own biggest weakness. He doesn't know how to turn off the engine sometimes

Q:Player's Biggest Strength?

6. His leadership and passing ability is his biggest strength. Doesn't matter who he's facing, who's had a bad day, he STILL goes 150 percent every day and fears nothing.

Q:Keep,Trade, and Let Walk away: Russ,KD,Harden

7. Keep Russ, Trade KD, walk away from Harden. Only because Westbrook was the franchise. Nobody else could've established them and kept them together like he did. KD doesn't have the leadership maturity Russ has. James Harden does, but his system wouldn't have applied to OKC, so that's that(still one of the greatest to ever play)

Q:Reaction to him being traded?

8. I was a little hurt, but every team rebuilds after being stagnant. Russ will forever be OKC. But it had to be done. They needed to reset.

Q:Predictions for this season?

9. Russ and James will prove to be a nasty combination. I give it three months. It's gonna be a lot to handle for people

Q:Predictions for the rest of his career?

10. I think Russ will at least hit one more WCF if not a NBA finals. He has two more years to snag a ring. After that, it's not happening. Easy future hall of famer.

Thank you to Walid for his time to answer these questions. I tune in every Wednesday for his fire freestyles for #WaWednesdays and you should too! Also check out his motivational videos also!!! He will also be back for a Kevin Durant Interview later on.

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
