There was a workplace incident in today’s NBA game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Philadelphia 76ers. Joel Embiid collided with Russell Westbrook and a fracas nearly ensued before cooler heads prevailed.
Westbrook appeared to calm down, perhaps realizing that he overreacted to the situation, and the Thunder went on to win thanks to a clutch shot by Paul George.
Turns out … no. Westbrook is very much not over it as his NSFW language makes clear.
So what does this all mean, besides more HR paperwork for someone in the league’s office? Remains to be seen. One can only imagine how aggrieved Westbrook would be if he’d been the victim of a dirty play.
