Wait, Is Russell Westbrook Actually Offended That Some Mavericks Tried To Break Up His Choreography?
Wait, wait, wait, Russell Westbrook is the one that is upset about what happened pregame? The guy that did a full-on rendition of 'Stomp The Yard'? The guy who emasculated two grown men by violently tossing them out of the way to continue an obnoxiously long performance that had me checking the clock more often than my sister's second grade dance recital? He's pissed off about how that all unfolded?
Listen, I understand that Charlie Villanueva and Justin Anderson intentionally got in the way of Russell Westbrook and Cameron Payne while they were smack dab in the middle of their interpretation of 'Footloose'. I understand that's probably frowned upon in NBA circles. However, isn't it also frowned upon to have a pregame routine that's more elaborate than the dance team's halftime show? That little number was so extensive that it made Cam Newton blush. If anything, Russell Westbrook completely showed up his competition, not the other way around. He's the one that danced right in their face and then gave them a "what the fuck you gonna do about it?" shove when they tried to subtly intervene. You can't shoot 8-22 in a playoff game after putting on your own pregame concert, and even think about mentioning the opponent after you lose. Not when you tried your damnedest to embarrass that opponent before the game even started. I love an overdone dance-off as much as the next guy. As long as the person doing it acknowledges that it's completely unnecessary and that he's kinda an asshole for making it a bigger story than the basketball game itself.
