Thursday is Westbrook’s 32nd birthday and the team did the classy thing by wishing him a happy birthday despite everything that’s going on behind the scenes.

Fans thought the Rockets’ tweet was pretty awkward considering the circumstances.

Just like Tillman Fertitta to save money by throwing a birthday party and going away party at the same time https://t.co/5rOHwZTpyV
