Washington Wizards guard Russell Westbrook was having a bad night on Wednesday. It got even worse when the veteran All-Star had to leave the court with a lower-body injury Ish Smith T-Shirt. After spending some time on the court getting checked out by medical trainers, Westbrook was helped up off the floor, walking gingerly back to the locker room.Suddenly, something hit him on his way through the tunnel. A Philadelphia 76ers fan dumped popcorn on the star guard head. As expected, Westbrook went off, looking for a way to retaliate as security guards held him back from entering the arena bowl once again.Although the incident blew over quickly, and the guilty fan was escorted out of the arena, NBA players are not happy with the way everything went down as Westbrook was getting escorted back to his team locker room.Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James wasted no time jumping on Twitter and sounding off on the situation. As James has dealt with his fair share of disrespectful interactions around the league, the star guard feels for his fellow NBA star.WE AS THE PLAYERS wanna see who threw that popcorn on Russ while he was leaving the game tonight with an injury, the All-Star tweeted on Wednesday.Theres cameras all over arenas so theres no excuse! Cause if the shoe] was on the other foot] #ProtectOurPlayers Cassius Winston T-Shirt, he concluded.After the game, Westbrook himself reacted to the incident echoing a similar sentiment as LeBron.I wouldnt come up to me on the street and throw popcorn on my head, the Wizards star said, according to The Athletic Fred Katz.Because you know what happens. In these arenas, you gotta start protecting the players.
