Russell Westbrook ‘likes’ video of Gregg Popovich blasting Zaza Pachulia
Russell Westbrook’s season may be over, but his pettiness levels are still at an all-time high.
On Monday, Westbrook liked a video on Instagram of San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich going off on Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia for the play that injured Kawhi Leonard in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, per Carson Cunningham of KOCO-TV.

In the rant, Popovich ripped into Pachulia for a “totally unnatural closeout” and called attention to the Georgian big man’s history of dirty plays. Westbrook is, of course, well familiar with that history, having something of a personal vendetta against Pachulia after an incident with him in a game last January. Thus, it’s none too surprising Popovich has found himself at least one prominent ally in the Zaza Pachulia Anti-Fan Club.
