Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook’s brother vented on Twitter after an overtime lost to the memphis Grizzlies. He called for head coach Scott Brooks to be fired, saying the Thunder need a new head coach. The tweet was eventually deleted.
Well Westbrook reassured everyone that he handled his brother.
“I took care of that, man,” Russell said at Friday’s practice, via NewsOK.com. “We don’t conduct business like that.”
Westbrook went ahead and clarified any questions about his relationship with Brooks.
“Me and Scotty have a great relationship,” Russell said. “I’ve never once mentioned that I want Scotty to leave ever since I’ve been here. We created a bond with each other that’s grown.”
Westbrook’s brother issued his own apology on Twitter.
I would like to take the time out to apologies for my tweet yesterday I was just caught up in to the game and should not have said it.
