Russell Westbrook Drills Ref with Ball During Timeout

Zac WassinkFeatured ColumnistJanuary 4, 2017

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook has either very good or very poor aim, depending on your viewpoint.

At the start of a timeout in the first quarter of Wednesday's game between the Thunder and Charlotte Hornets at Spectrum Center, Westbrook tossed the basketball toward a referee.

But the ref apparently wasn't ready for the pass. Thus, the ball bounced right off his head.

Westbrook received a technical foul even though it appeared the incident was accidental.

That's not a way to get your next triple-double, Russ.
