Watch: Nobody Gives Russell Westbrook the Finger and Gets Away With It

One 76ers fan learned the hard way.

Published October 27, 2016

The return of the NBA season means the return of prideful fans coming out in droves to support their teams. And for some fans, sometimes the passion of a heated game can get the best of them.

On Wednesday night, during the Philadelphia 76ers game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, one Philly fan decided to show his absolute disdain for OKC point guard Russell Westbrook.

Westbrook had a fast break and finished a layup during the game. That’s when he looked up and noticed a man dressed in 76ers gear giving him not one, but two middle fingers. 

When Westbrook noticed the man, he pointed at the fan while his teammates pulled him back.

OKC player Steven Adams then was seen saying something to the fan as Westbrook walked up to the ref and said, “He can’t do that.”

It was later reported by Philadelphia Magazine sports writer Derek Bodner that the fan was ejected from the game.
