Instagram Russell Westbrook, Philadelphia 76ers

Philadelphia basketball is back.

After four straight losing seasons -- with the 76ers failing to 20 games in each of the past three -- the team is healthy and respectable this year. Former No. 3 pick Joel Embiid has finally healed after being sidelined for two years, Dario Saric has arrived in America two years after getting drafted and Sergio Rodriguez is back from Spain. On top of that, Ben Simmons, the No. 1 overall pick this year, is injured but should debut at some point in 2016-17 (not to jinx anything).

The Sixers opened up the season at home Wednesday against the Thunder. Russell Westbrook got a taste of the revived Philly fan base. A Wells Fargo Center spectator flipped off the five-time All-Star.

Westbrook reacts in a veteran manner. He points out the fan's poor behavior to the officials and carries on with the game. It takes a lot more to upset Westbrook.

Westbrook finished with 32 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists. The Thunder escaped Philadelphia with a 103-97 win and its integrity intact.
