Russell Westbrook may have just taken a page from of the book of Duke University’s Grayson Allen. In Sunday’s loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Oklahoma City guard appears to try and trip Cavs guard, Iman Shumpert, by extending his foot outward. Though Westbrook claims it was unintentional, the camera never lies.
Here is a clip of the incident:
If you watch closely, it does appear that Westbrook’s frustration gets the better of him here, as he clearly extends his legs in the direction of Shumpert’s path as he starts to take the ball up the court. While Westbrook has never really been known as “dirty,” this play certainly qualifies as such.
