DID the Oklahoma City Thunder just troll the Golden State Warriors?
An hour before the scheduled Christmas game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Minnesota Timberwolves, a video shared by the Thunder shows their superstar guard shooting jumpers during warmups at the Chesapeake Arena.
After releasing his last shot, a visibly ecstatic Westbrook suddenly ran for the tunnel and can be heard shouting.
In the OKC post, the caption stated: “First try! Russ warms up. Getting ready for tonight vs. TWolves. Comment below with #NBAVote and Russell Westbrook. Note: he says "thank you Jamie" who is the little girl sitting and watching him. “
But listening closely, it sounded more like “Thank you Kyrie!” and could be a reference to the game-winning basket Irving made in the earlier game in the much-awaited meeting of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors.
It is widely publicized that Westbrook and the Thunder did not take kindly to Kevin Durant’s transfer to the Warriors as a free agent last summer.
