Russell Westbrook Clowned By Sacramento Kings' PA System During Brutal Shooting Night


It was another one of those nights for Russell Westbrook. The beleaguered Los Angeles Lakers guard suffered through another woeful shooting performance, going 2-for-14. And the Sacramento Kings' PA system clowned on him by playing a clip of the old Foreigner hit "Cold As Ice" after each and every brick. 

The 2-for-14 follows a 2-for-12, a 4-for-14 and a 7-for-19 for Westbrook. That's 25% FG over the last four games. Just 20% in the last three. His response to the "Cold As Ice" shade he received from the Kings in-arena staff?

"That's funny, I hope they played that the last 14 years, it's funny they'll play it now, that's cute," Westbrook said with a smile. 

And the Kings took it one step further, putting up a graphic on the scoreboard video screens, calling him the "Ice Cold Player of the Game".

While even Russ himself smiled about the treatment after the game, the Kings will not be allowed to continue that type of trolling in the future, according to a local Sacramento reporter. 

But that won't solve Westbrook's shooting woes. He also went 0-for-5 from three-point range, and is down to 28.8% from long range this season.
