Kevin Durant likes to shoot and so does Russell Westbrook. Unfortunately they play on the same team. Now, it’s certainly not uncommon to have teammates yell at each other during a game but can’t you see this becoming a theme between these two? However, it is worth noting that last night’s altercation had nothing to do with shot selection…this time.
Westbrook’s frustration appeared to have started with just 3 1/2 minutes remaining in the second quarter when he drove into the paint and kicked the ball out to Thabo Sefolosha in the corner. Sefolosha passed up a wide open 3-pointer, which prompted Westbrook to yell at Sefolosha “shoot the (expletive) ball.”
Durant appeared to again settle Westbrook, but Westbrook appeared to take exception to how Durant delivered his message. The two began shouting at each other and had to be separated.
