A Victory for History Teachers Everywhere

City rookie guard Russell Westbrook is doing excellently right now. He played fantastically in the Orlando Summer League, earning him first team All-Summer League honors and helping make General Manager Sam Presti look good. However, a recent incedent during a media session shows that he's far from stardom.

Russell Westbrook was asked by one member of the media how his relationship with cousin Brian Westbrook of the Philidelphia Eagles was.

One problem though. Russell Westbrook has no cousin named Brian.

Russell's reply was 'That's not my cousin.'

Apparently, someone put this bit of fiction of Russell Westbrook's Wikipedia entry. An embarassing moment for both the interviewer and Russell, however, it provides history teachers around the nation ammunition to use against the acadmeically hated site.
