During the NBA draft, Westbrook was chosen as the fourth overall pick by the Seattle SuperSonics, which was later renamed the Thunder just six days after relocating to Oklahoma City. Joining the Thunder in 2008, he showcased his talent with an impressive 43-point performance, marking a career-high at the time. In 2011, Westbrook earned a spot in the NBA All-Star Game and secured a place in the ALL-NBA Second Team. One year later, he played a crucial role in leading his team to the NBA finals, becoming the first player since Michael Jordan to achieve 25+ points and 10+ assists in the finals. He also contributed to the 2012 Summer Olympics team, winning a gold medal.

However, in 2013, despite his team securing the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs, the player faced injuries to his right knee during the second game, yet resiliently scored 29 points. Following surgery, he was traded to the Houston Rockets in July, making a notable debut with 24 points for his new team.


The athlete paid $4.65 million for a Los Angeles home previously owned by Scott Disick. He later put it up for sale in June 2019 and lowered the asking price to $5.35 million a few months later. Westbrook bought another mansion in LA's Brentwood neighborhood for around $19.75 million. He listed this property for a whopping $30 million. He also owns several other properties in Oklahoma and New York.
