Russell Westbrook Fined $15K Dropping F-Bomb During Post-Game Interview (VIDEO)
Game 2 against the Houston Rockets saw Russell Westbrook go absolutely off on the court and drop 51 points en route to yet another triple-double. But it wasn’t enough as the OKC Thunder squandered a huge lead and lost 115-111 to go down 0-2 in the playoff series.
After the game, Westbrook was asked about his stat-line, and he made it very clear that he didn’t give a f*ck.
