Russell Westbrook without a doubt is a feisty guy (and the most underrated player in the NBA). THAT’S WHAT MAKES HIM A GREAT PLAYER. Finally an NBA Star with edge, and you all want to call him out for it?.. (Video at the bottom)
Russell Westbrook was on his way in to the locker room Friday night after Game 6 of the NBA Playoffs against the Utah Jazz, when a fan starts putting his phone in Russell’s face while yelling… I don’t know about you, but that’s how you get that a$$ beat. ESPECIALLY after being eliminated first round of playoffs! Players are upset, pissed, emotional, and your dumb ass wants to stick a camera in (possibly) the face of the craziest NBA Star on the court? I wish Russell Westbrook would have pulled this man out of the stands to see how quickly he shaped up.
In the post game interview, Russell Westbrook told media:
“I didn’t confront fans; fans confronted me. Here in Utah, man, a lot of disrespectful, vulgar things are said to the players here with these fans. It’s truly disrespectful. Talk about your families, your kids. It’s truly disrespectful to the game, man.”
The guy stood his ground, nothing wrong with that.
PS – Russell Westbrook is the hardest playing athlete in the entire NBA.
