After a young fan tapped him during a game, Russell Westbrook went into full-on “dad mode” and confronted him.
After the game, Westbrook told reporters, “He hit me, […] So I told his dad, ‘be careful, man, you can’t have your son just hitting random people. I don’t know him, he don’t know me. So, just letting him know, ‘You’ve just got to control your kids.’”
He went on to address the larger issues he sees at the games, saying, “For all fans though, there’s too much leeway for the fans to be able to touch the players and get away with it, and then you can’t react and do the things that we need to do to protect ourselves. … But I can’t do nothing. What am I going to do, hop in the stands? But there has to be some type of rule or some type of boundaries set that you can’t allow that.”
