Russell Westbrook is one of the most fiery guys in the NBA and it’s clear he doesn’t back down from anything or anyone. During last night’s game against the Golden State Warriors, he got into a war of words with the opposing team and things carried over. Next thing you know, he was staring at the Dub Nation bench, saying stuff to Andrew Wiggins and Klay Thompson before getting ejected.
Westbrook has been playing like a madman lately, but his ejection made no difference on the outcome.
The Houston Rockets were already up 35 points in the fourth quarter at that point and they finished cruising to an easy win on the road.
After the game, Russ said he was disappointed that nobody else got tossed and he was the only one. Though he did admit he has to do a better job to hold himself accountable, he didn’t like how he was painted out to be the bad guy.
