Russell Westbrook Hates Queso, Blocks Mascot's Shot

Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook may have just made enemies with an entire city. In a 121-118 loss to the Nuggets, Westbrook drew the ire of the city of Denver when he repeatedly blocked the over-the-head-backwards shots Rocky, the Nuggets mascot, was shooting.

While most teams (including the Nuggets) will do a promotion for a free item--say, Big Macs or tacos--based on how many points the home team scores, Denver goes one step further. The team offers complimentary queso from a local Mexican eatery to the entire crowd if Rocky sinks one of his signature shots. But Westbrook would have none of that, and blocked not one, but two shots headed towards the rim. And the fans booed him mercilessly.

Apparently, as the Nuggets still reached 110+ points, the entire city can redeem the high scoring for a free taco. So they can continue to be fatties, courtesy of the NBA. Thanks, fellas.
