Ref Takes Ball To Face From Westbrook
Russell Westbrook has been playing out of his mind all season for the Oklahoma City Thunder. The departure of Kevin Durant to Golden State has allowed Westbrook to expand his game to a completely different level as he is averaging 30.9 PPG, 10.5 APG, and 10.5 RPG.
Last night, Westbrook passing prowess was on prime display. Especially on one pass in particular to the referee.
WHAT. A. PASS.
The best part of Westbrook's pass to the referee was that his timing was so on point, that the official was in the midst of turning his head as the ball was a mere feet from his head. The guy is having a year where he just can't miss!
Westbrook picked up a technical foul for the incident even though he pleaded his case over the minutes following. The tech should be rescinded by the NBA, however, many believe the pass was intentional.
Do you think Westbrook hit the referee with the ball on purpose?
