NBA will no longer allow Kings to troll players like Russell Westbrook
Westbrook shot 2-of-14 overall and 0-of-5 from deep, which continued a bumpy shooting streak for him in recent weeks. Against the Kings on the road, the game operations team poked at Westbrook by playing “Cold As Ice” after he missed a shot and deemed him the “Ice Cold Player of the Game” once Sacramento secured the win.
As much fun as it was to see a visiting player like Russell Westbrook of the Lakers last night identified as the “Cold as Ice” player of the game, a source with the NBA tells me that the bit used by the Kings will not be allowed to continue.
