Russell Westbrook is not one to be heckled.

Last year, a fed-up Westbrook declared that he would no longer allow people to call him “Westbrick”.

“Me and my wife were at teacher-parent conferences for my son,”

“And, the teacher told me, ‘[My son] Noah, he’s so proud of his last name. He writes it everywhere. He writes it on everything. He tells everybody and walks around and says, ‘I’m Westbrook.’

“And, I kind of sat there in shock, “And, it hit me, like, ‘Damn. I can no longer allow people [to call me Westbrick].’”

Since then, Westbrook has confronted several fans who have heckled him.

During game 1 of the Suns-Clippers series, Westbrook got into a heated confrontation with a Suns fan in a backstage suite.
