Sorry, Russell Westbrook. Not buying this one:
Westbrook was asked if he'd seen the meme of him eyeing the MVP trophy: "I don't know what memes is."— Royce Young (@royceyoung) October 13, 2014
The query presumably is referring to this meme that's circulated since Kevin Durant went down with a foot injury on Sunday.
Westbrook has surely seen this, as much as he wants to claim otherwise. Rule No. 1 of claiming ignorance: purposely misspelling the concept so your claim sounds more believable. That's exactly what Westbrook did.
But just in case he really doesn't know what a meme is, we're here to help:
