Russell Westbrook said that the ball is his only friend on the basketball court.
Per ESPN, "When I get on the floor, I got one friend, and that's the basketball," Westbrook said before the Thunder's 118-87 loss to the Rockets in Game 1 of their Western Conference playoff series. "I've been like that since I was a little kid. My dad told me that when I was younger: 'You got one friend, and your friend is Spalding. At the time maybe it was Wilson or some other s---.'
"Whatever the ball is, that's who my friend is."
