[Watch] Russell Westbrook vs. Reggie Jackson

Keep Thunder star far away from former teammate.

Published March 30, 2016

There's no love lost between Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson.

After the Detroit Pistons scored a home victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night, Westbrook particularly took offense to his former teammate, Jackson, celebrating the "W" on the court.

Russ more than let that be known, dishing out some harsh words for the guard who he teamed with from 2011-14.

“Yeah I did,” Westbrook told NewsOK.com when asked if he took exception to Jackson's on-court celebration. “I thought it was some real b******* for our team and our organization. I don't like it at all. But it is what it is. We'll see him down the line. We'll take care of that when we get there.”

Russ has no chill when it comes to breaking down his disdain for Reggie.

Jackson painfully made it public that he wanted out of OKC, before the organization granted him his wish and traded him to the Pistons in February 2015.

“He wasn't changing nothing for us,” Westbrook also told NewsOK. “Obviously he didn't want to be here. He's at a better spot. He's not doing too much of a difference if you ask me. He's gonna stay over in Detroit. We gonna stay over here and we'll see them next season.”

Expect fireworks and hard fouls when Westbrook and the Thunder meet Jackson's Pistons next season.

This is the epitome of no love being lost between former teammates — not to mention must-see NBA TV in every sense.
