Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder were eliminated by the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night. The MVP candidate went out in classic Westbrook fashion: by taking twice the amount of shots as anyone else on his team (34) and beefing with an opponent (Patrick Beverley).
At one point during the two’s heated exchange he offered a prolonged look of defiance and appeared to say “your mom.”
“Your mom” is a classic insult. It ended any argument from 1993-1996 on the spot. If Westbrook can bring it back into popularity it’ll be a feat more impressive than averaging a triple-double this year.
Beverley’s mom, by the way, was the subject of a 2013 Houston Chronicle profile containing this sentence:
The sounds of fingernails being filed and a faint Lauryn Hill song in the background can be heard at Just Tipz and Toez Nail Salon on the east side of Houston.
It’s a typical day at the salon – women catching up while having their acrylic nails filled in and decorated for the holidays.
Just. The. Tipz.
