Russell Westbrook said he took exception to former teammate Reggie Jackson’s animated celebration with a few seconds remaining in the Detroit Pistons’ 88-82 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday.
“Yeah, I did actually,” Westbrook said when asked if he disapproved. “Honestly, I think that was some real bulls—. I don’t appreciate it 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.”
