The Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Houston Rockets on Thursday night, with the highlight of the evening for the purple and gold being Kobe Bryant's poster-dunk on Clint Capela. Russell got so excited by the jam that he ran from the bench onto the court, earning himself a technical foul. It was a rookie mistake, and Russell had a rookie reaction:
Russell got a T for celebrating after Kobe's dunk. He had second thoughts- "I was like how much is that? How much am I going to be fined?"— janis carr (@janiscarr) December 18, 2015
For context, Russell will be fined $2,000 for his first technical foul of the season. Just another learning experience for the 19-year old point guard. Welcome to the league rookie.
