    Westbrook threatens fan and fan's wife

    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/2...0x_tztKf_FPmVk

    Very disappointed by this. Though he's still among my favorite players, I've noticed Russ has been getting more and more hot-headed lately. This is a new low. I know fans can heckle and say bad things, but you never threaten someone's wife. Not cool. :(

    Update: NBA handled this the right way, I think -- fan is permanently banned while Russ gets a fine: http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/2...rook-fined-25k

    You get paid to play and let fans have their fun. I don’t know what was said, and even if it crossed a line, you’re a pro. Take it and collect your check. Let the team police the fans.

    I read some more about it, and the whole thing seems overblown from both sides. Seems a classic symptom of today's outrage culture.

    So the fan dude made a really stupid comment that Russ construed as racial (it could also be construed as a homosexual accusation). Russ gets angered easily by lots of things these days (I also watched one game where he told Nikola Jokic that he'd '[blank] him up,' for example, so this isn't new for Russ), so obviously if a fan is making a comment that could be taken in a racial way, he's gonna get even more mad (and more understandably so, in this case). The fan almost certainly knew this about him, and chose to go for the low-blow, which makes the fan a major tool as well. Apparently the fan is a used car salesman and has already gotten a lawyer after outing himself in public like a doofus.

    This is just dumb from every angle possible. I hope Russ learns from it. I love his fire as a player, but he's getting more and more out of control with it this year. He's two technicals away from a suspension, I think. He's got to save the fire for constructive contexts and not dumb tool fans.

    Pretty immature on both sides. Fans tend to place players on a pedestal, then they fall or get knocked off.
