NBA: Tim Duncan Addressed Russell Westbrook’s Pre Game Dance Routine & His Comment May Surprise You

Charlie Villanueva, Justin Anderson and other members of the Mavs had an issue with the way Russell Westbrook dances as part of his pre game routine. Russ has been doing it all season with Cameron Payne but for some reason in the playoffs, the Mavs wanted to act offended and all they got in return was an ass whooping on the court and Charlie getting ethered by Russ & KD during the final post game press conference of the series.
