Russell Westbrook is a pretty mean dude, so we’re guessing not many players on the Oklahoma City Thunder would mess with him.
As for Team USA? That’s a different story.
The All-Star point guard had a bit of a rough time during a recent workout for USA Basketball in Las Vegas, making a mistake during a drill that required him to take two dribbles and score.
Westbrook probably hoped his error would go unnoticed, but LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony made sure it didn’t.[tweet https://twitter.com/Hoopmixtape/status/631620737506238464 align=’center’]
The two superstars immediately starting cracking up and ripping Westbrook for passing the ball back out to the perimeter, thus defeating the purpose of the “scoring drill.”
Deep down, we’re guessing Westbrook was seething at being made the brunt of a joke. But when LeBron and Melo are the ones ribbing you, it’s probably best to just let it slide.
