Russ Russ throws a hissy fit
The Thunder raced out to an early lead last night and coasted to a 106-89 win against the short handed, Gay-less, Grizzlies. Towards the end of the game, Russ Russ was called for a 5 second violation while posting up Jerryd Bayless and apparently blamed it on poor Thabo Sefolosha. The below video is what follows and his post game interview with the always well dressed, Craig Sager. Mind you, this all unfolded as the Thunder were up 18 points. While I admire the fire that Westbrook plays with on a nightly basis, I have to completely disagree with his statement saying he handled this like a man. He handled this like a spoiled 12 year old that didn't have the nicest sneakers in gym class. Russ Russ is a freak of an athlete, but if he thinks storming off the court with a towel over his head after jumping up and down and screaming about a 5 second violation while the Thunder are up 18 points is what a leader does, he has a lot of growing up to do.
