The Los Angeles Lakers star point guard Russell Westbrook stood by his actions that led him to be ejected in the final seconds, marring his return to OKC, via ESPN:

Like in baseball, you don’t flip the bat. There’s certain things you don’t do in sports when the game’s already over. And I didn’t like it. Simple as that.”
