Well this sure made things awkward: in the most heated moments of Thunder shoot-around today, Russell Westbrook accidentally called new teammate Victor Oladipo “Kevin”.
“What did you just call me?” Oladipo asked, forcing Westbrook to stop shooting right then and there. “You were thinking about him, weren’t you?
“No, I swear I wasn’t!” explained Westbrook. “It’s just habit. You know, after you shoot around with someone for so many years, it takes time to adjust. I’m sorry. I meant nothing by it.”
Despite Westbrook’s apology, Oladipo decided it would be best if he shot around in another gym that night.
