After a game in which Russell Westbrook seemingly shot the ball on every possession, the Thunder guard showed that he wasn’t done yet, by continuing to shoot the ball on the bus ride back to Oklahoma City.
“I can’t see the hoop from here, but screw it!” screamed Westbrook, launching the ball through the bus’s window while it sped along I-45.
“Did it go in?” Westbrook asked teammate Andre Roberson, who was fully asleep. “I’m kidding, I don’t care. Just felt good to let it fly!”
Midway through the trip, Westbrook became concerned about being painted as a ball-hog – so he passed the ball to Roberson, who was still asleep.
“Dammit, Russ, what the hell, man?” Roberson complained after the ball hit him directly in the face. “You’re acting crazy. We both know you’re better off just shooting it.”
