By now you may have heard about the Philadelphia 76ers fan who stood up and gave Russell Westbrook two middle fingers during Oklahoma's game with the Sixers on Wednesday night. But the fan in question -- who was thrown out of the arena for his double bird -- is saying that it was Westbrook who started the whole thing.
Meet Dr. Richard Harkaway, a Philadelphia urologist (yep) who had courtside seats for the regular season opener for both teams. Here's Harkaway giving both barrels to Westbrook:
“To all my FB friends who are seeing a picture of me on the Internet giving the finger to Russell Westbrook. Actually two fingers,’’ Harkaway wrote in a private post. “Not as simple as it seems. I love to scream at the players and anyone who has been to a game with me knows this. Part of my charm. What you may not have seen on any of the video clips is what started the whole thing, which was Russell Westbrook saying ‘sit down f—ing fat boy’ when I stood up to boo.”
