Name: Russell Westbrook Nickname: Russ, Honey Badger, Cat, Russheed Wallace Player History: Russell Westbrook's name came to be known to the public when he played for UCLA. UCLA was a consistent national title threat during Westbrook's tenure, but they never never able to make it past the Final Four. Back then, Westbrook suffered from constant questions as to whether he was a real point guard, for he loved to drive the lane in his signature crazy fashion. He didn't spend much of his time developing traditional point guard skills as a kid, and there were a lot of questions about his jumper. But numbers don't lie, and his aggressive man-to-man defense combined with his athleticism and rebounding ability served to make him one of the top prospects heading into the 2008 NBA Draft.
