Some congratulations are in order for Russell Westbrook and his wife, Nina.
The Thunder star took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce the pair are expecting their first child together.
The adorable photo has Russell kissing Nina’s belly and is simply captioned with the expected due date — May 2017.
The baby announcement is the icing on the cake for Westbrook’s fantastic year thus far. The MVP candidate has recorded 30 triple doubles so far this season and is averaging a career-high 31.2 points per game.
Stallworth scored 10 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter as the Knicks rallied from a 13-point deficit to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.
With Reed sidelined with a torn thigh muscle, the Knicks lost Game 6, setting the stage for Reed’s legendary appearance at the start of Game 7.
“There was no way Reed could play,” Stallworth said after Game 7 in a jubilant Knick locker room (via the New York Daily News). “He was limping so bad. The guy is beautiful, just beautiful.”
Stallworth took over in the second half for the badly limping Reed as the Knicks won, 113-99, to win their first NBA title.
In November 1971, Stallworth was part of another piece of Knicks lore as he was traded with Mike Riordan to the Baltimore Bullets for Earl “The Pearl” Monroe, who starred in Cheap Lakers Jerseys New York’s backcourt with Walt Frazier and helped the Knicks win their second — and most recent — title in 1973.
Stallworth retired at 33 after a brief return to the Knicks in the 1974-75 Cheap Miami Heat Jerseys season. He later returned to Wichita and worked for many years at Boeing, according to the Eagle.
