Thunder star Kevin Durant joined teammate Russell Westbrook in his criticism of Reggie Jackson’s celebration at the end of Oklahoma City’s 88–82 loss to the Pistons on Tuesday, calling the move “bush league.”
“It was bush league, in my opinion,” Durant said Thursday. “Jumping up and down, running around. I understand you’re happy you won the game, but our whole team didn’t play. We would’ve beat the hell out of them if it did.”
Durant and power forward Serge Ibaka did not suit up for the game on a scheduled rest day.
Immediately after the game, Westbrook was extremely critical of Jackson, describing his celebration with an expletive. (Warning: Video contains explicit language)
