Russell Westbrook to Teammates Re Kevin Durant: “Don’t Say What’s Up to that B**** A** N****!”
In case you were wondering, no, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant have not buried the hatchet.
Last spring the Oklahoma City Thunder blew a 3-1 series lead against the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals. However, instead of re-signing with the Thunder to see if he could get them over the hump, Durant took the “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” approach, signing a two-year $54 million deal with the Warriors.
On Wednesday, during the Thunder’s visit to Golden State’s Oracle Arena, Russell Westbrook removed all doubt that he’s still pissed at Kevin Durant.
First there was this interaction. You can’t hear what the guys are saying, but it doesn’t look friendly:

Then, after the final buzzer sounded on the Warriors’ 121-100 win, the microphone picked up Westbrook instructing his teammates, “Don’t say ‘what’s up’ to that b**** a** n****!”:
