Russell Westbrook had an explosive game, dropping a season-best 46 points in a 121-112 win over the Washington Wizards, and apparently, it was because he thought he was the last pick in the 2018 NBA All-Star Game draft.
Westbrook presumably was shown LeBron James' list on social media, and assumed he was the draft's final pick.
See? There's his name right behind...John Wall of the Washington Wizards!
Unfortunately for the Wizards and Wall, Westbrook didn't pick up on the fact that the list was alphabetically arranged, and the reporters needed to alert him to that fact.
Russell Westbrook asked his thoughts about being picked on LeBron’s team, thought he was the last pick. Informed it was just an alphabetical list, he made sure to correct Melo who was heckling nearby. pic.twitter.com/gPMgPr91Kz— Royce Young (@royceyoung) January 26, 2018
The lesson of this story? Don't piss off Russell Westbrook.
