When basketball fans haven’t eaten snacks they don’t want, Russell Westbrook I would clearly prefer them to throw the food in the trash instead of throwing it to him.
The 32-year-old NBA superstar injured his ankle in the fourth quarter of a playoff matchup between his Washington Wizards and the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday May 26th. A 76ers fan threw popcorn at the player.
The video of the incident shows that the nine-time all-star was furious at the fan’s action and had to be held back by several staff members and the wizards security team. According to ESPN, security ejected the fan a moment later.
“To be completely honest, this is getting out of control for me,” Russ told the press after the game. “The amount of disrespect, the amount of fans who just do whatever they want – it’s just out of pocket.”
