Russell Westbrook broke the fourth wall and became the first meme of the NBA playoffs

*Looks directly into camera*

Playoff games always give us some special moments. There are the ones that involve actual gameplay, and others that are just serendipitous happenstances.

This is one of the latter.

The cameras zoomed in on Russell Westbrook and he happened to look right back. It reminded us immediately of Jim Halpert of The Office. (Russ is totally a Jim, by the way. Just think of all the pranks he’s pulled on Kevin Durant.)

Instant meme, if you ask me.

Not everyone is as lucky as Cam Newton.

We understand Russ, we really do.
