Last Night’s Best Behind-The-Back 270-Degree-Spin Leaping Fast Break Pass

There are athletes, then there are elite athletes, then there’s Russell Westbrook.

Last night, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook continued his nightly quest to embarrass the entire NBA with his freakish athleticism.

During a fast break against the Sacramento Kings, Westbrook went behind his back, lost control of the ball, left his feet, spun 90 degrees to his left, regained control of the ball, turned back to his right and completed a pass for an easy layup.

LeBron and others are of course freak athletes in their own right, but no current player is as fascinatingly bendy or kinetic as young Russ. Watch again in slow motion.

And from another angle.

So what is his secret?!?
