Where Westbrook likely heard about the trade is just as wild as the actual swap of point guards. The former MVP was hosting a charity comedy show in Tulsa, Okla. when the trade went down.

He even found the time for a good laugh ... at the expense of former Warriors star Kevin Durant. Comedian Lance Woods took a crack at when KD left Westbrook and the rest of his Thunder teammates to join the Dubs.
So, there was a Kevin Durant joke at Russell Westbrook's comedy show in Tulsa last night, and @russwest44 seemed to approve. Comedian Lance Woods with the @KDTrey5 punchline. You can see Russ laughing at the end of the video. The #NBA is fun. #Thunder #Rockets #Nets pic.twitter.com/qjBFERzY9u

Durant signed with the Nets this offseason as Westbrook reportedly is re-joining former teammate James Harden in Houston. Those three have all won MVP awards and are all no longer a part of the Thunder.
The fact that OKC once had a trio of Durant, Westbrook and Harden -- but never took home a title -- will always go down in NBA history.
