NYPost- Dr. Richard Harkaway, a Philadelphia urologist who is originally from Long Island, wrote that it was Westbrook who initiated the confrontation, which ended with Harkaway being tossed from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia during the 76ers’ season-opening loss.
“To all my FB friends who are seeing a picture of me on the Internet giving the finger to Russell Westbrook. Actually two fingers,’’ Harkaway wrote in a private post. “Not as simple as it seems. I love to scream at the players and anyone who has been to a game with me knows this. Part of my charm. What you may not have seen on any of the video clips is what started the whole thing, which was Russell Westbrook saying ‘sit down f—ing fat boy’ when I stood up to boo.”
“I am sometimes sensitive about my plumpness,’’ said Harkaway, who also dabbles in stand-up comedy. “I guess I got a little out of hand."
1) I'm fairly certain that if Russell Westbrook's "thing" was to go around to every overweight fan sitting within ear shot and fat shaming them then we would have heard about it before now. There's simply no way the professional basketball player is the person that started this confrontation. Did he send back a barb about old boy's FUPA after chubs booed obnoxiously in his face? Maybe, but that would be warranted because there is absolutely nothing "charming" about being the grown ass man that makes a habit out of yelling at players from the sideline and I am in favor of any returning insult that could possibly correct that behavior.
2) Hey Doc, don't quit your day job. A part time stand-up comedian that can't laugh at his blatantly obvious flaws? How about you just keep fixing those dicks, Dick? Leave the funny business to the people that know how to take jokes at their expense in stride. Imagine this guy getting heckled at an open mic? Nothing loses an audience quicker than turning beet red as you aggressively give them the two finger salute. Come on Richard, you'll never be able to stop examining past-their-prime scrotums if can't learn the art of self-deprecation. I don't know what type of material this guy uses for his act, but laughs are the only thing his over-inflated ass is leaving on table if none of his one liners are belly-based. Fat is funny, self consciousness is not. Not only is this guy an awful fan, but he's an undoubtedly a room killer. Just up there getting all pissy every time someone mentions that the mic cord is running right between his tits. He needs to accept his damn body, because he can't play the victim when he literally makes a hobby out of victimizing others for shits and giggles.
