Lightening quick RUSSELL WESTBROOK plays basketball with such fierce abandon and determination that it often looks like the former UCLA star has something to prove although he’s already proven himself in the NBA. But one need only look to Westbrook’s wrist to determine why the Thunder’s mercurial point guard plays with such passion: It’s because he’s playing for two.
Westbrook wears a KB3 sports band on his wrist for best friend Khelcey Barrs III, whom Russell lost while the two were high school buddies and teammates. ESPN has the story:

Moving tribute by Westbrook to a fallen buddy. Russell certainly honors Khelcey’s memory well with his play on the court.
