Did T-Mac Call Russell Westbrook Retarded?


Russell Westbrook is expectedly having a monster season running the show in OKC, but NBA Twitter blew up today after he told media he’s not much of a film-watching guy. (He chills and plays card games on his phone instead.)

ESPN’s NBA crew tackled the topic tonight, and it sounds like Tracy McGrady has some thoughts on Russ’s approach to the game:

@awfulannouncing @tmac def just called Westbrook "retarded". Cant tell if @MichelleDBeadle says "watch urself" or "interesting" pic.twitter.com/2k2Qsvvb6F

In case you were wondering, Russ does lead the NBA in turnovers with 58.
