What's sad is that you know that trolling only made Westbrook jack up more shots just to prove the arena staff wrong.

There were at least 2-3 processions in which the defender stops running towards the 3 point line after seeing its Westbrook being wide open.

Was this just for Westbrook or do they do that for every opponent miss?

yeah, you can call me a grumpy old man (Im sure most of you will) but to me this kind of stuff just shows the overall decline of the nba. Professionalism is becoming an endangered creature. Trolling has become pervasive in all aspects of the game, and more and more it is becoming the primary method for communication, whether its in the national media, local broadcasts, arenas, or the players themselves. The NBA is essentially becoming an extension of NBA Twitter instead of NBA Twitter being an extension of the NBA.

Yo his reaction post game was pretty hilarious too. He said "thats cute, that's funny. Wonder if they been playing that the past 14 years". The whole situation, all way around is funny to me.

What?? why would the NBA not allow this to continue?? it's hilarious, it's entertaining, for players it's part of the experience when you play in a hostile arena with opposing fans.... i don't get why they would disallow this

I wouldn’t say grumpy, more like hypocritical old man. Teams and their fans have been taunting players since forever. This isn’t even mean spirited.

But please go on telling us how things were so much better in the past.

...because it makes the sport look like its run by a bunch of twitter obsessed teenagers instead of... you know... a professional business worth billions of dollars.

Taunting players have been like forever, that's actually one of things that actually had gotten better over the years. Back in the 60s/70s/80s, it was endless racist chants. 90s/00s got a little better until the Pacers/Pistons brawl. This is only a personal attack regarding one's shooting; let's be honest, Westbrook has been shooting like crap all game. Nothing sensitive at all.

What's next, the crowd should be quiet so that a bad free throw shooter can focus better?
