Russell Westbrook is mad at Marc Gasol

It’s not the first time these two have tangoed.

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Oklahoma City Thunder Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Marc Gasol drew the ire of Russell Westbrook during tonight’s 110-94 victory over OKC. Russell stumbled into Gasol’s open arms after missing a rebound, and didn’t take kindly to Marc’s Southern hospitality. Come on Russ... He was catching you!

To be fair, Westbrook shouldn’t trust Gasol. Remember when Marc punk’d him with this cute “boop” on the head?

I’d probably get mad too. In any case, it’s going to be fun to watch Westbrook go nuclear this season, and he’s my pick if I go first pick in my fantasy league’s draft.

The Thunder may have a rough season as a team, but Westbrook will have a legendary season as an individual. Maybe he’ll be the first MVP for a non-playoff team?

Most project the Grizzlies to have an underwhelming season, and many forecast missing the playoffs as a major possibility. I know these are preseason games, but these Grizzlies look much more dynamic scoring 110+ pts a game in David Fizdale’s revamped offense.
