Will Russell Westbrook take the league by storm with Kevin Durant out for at least a month? The former MVP suffered a broken foot, and with the many questions regarding Westbrook's abilities, Khari and Theo discuss what we should expect.

These topics and many more, including the "bounce brothers" of Minnesota, are discussed in this episode of "The Give & Go with Khari and Theo."
