Russell Westbrook Throws Tantrum On Bench (Video)

I’ve heard of players being upset during a game, but this is a first. Russell Westbrook was very upset on the bunch during Thursdays Thunder-Grizzlies game, so much so as to throw a tantrum on the bench, and then storm off into the tunnel.

TNT’s live broadcast reported that Westbrook was angry towards Kevin Durant, Royce Young of the Daily Thunder tweeted that he thought Westbrook was actually mad at Sefolosha.

TNT is evidently saying it was Westbrook and KD who argued. It absolutely looked to me to be Thabo who Russ was going after.

It’ll be interesting to see if Westbrook ever comments on this situation.
