NBA Commissioner Adam Silver revealed in an NBA Finals news conference that he spoke with Jazz players in the wake of the Russell Westbrook heckling incident this March. “I spoke directly to the players on that team, as a team… I wanted to make sure they were satisfied with the way it was handled,” Silver said. “They seemed to be satisfied, as well.” “I told them that I appreciated the way that they had handled it and that it was not going to be tolerated in the NBA, and that we also appreciated the way they had come together with management and ownership of that team,” Silver said. “I felt their response was spot on.”
In Las Vegas for his annual Tiger Jam charity celebrity gathering, Woods was bounced from his own poker event at MGM Grand by NBA superstar Russell Westbrook on an absolutely brutal beat. With an ace-king in hand, Woods went all-in against Westbrook’s queen-queen. And despite a brief moment of elation when he saw a second ace on the flop, the 15-time major winner is devastated a moment later when a third queen is revealed. With no help on the turn or the river, Woods was officially eliminated from the event by the Oklahoma City Thunder guard.
That meant that LeBron James did not get a first team All-NBA selection for the first time in 11 years, since he was named to the second team in 2007. James did, however, extend his streak of consecutive All-NBA selections to 15 — tying him with Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most in NBA history — by earning a third-team nod in his first year with the Los Angeles Lakers. The second team consisted of Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving at guard, Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard at forward and Joel Embiid at center. Beyond James, the third team consisted of Russell Westbrook and Kemba Walker at guard, Blake Griffin at forward and Rudy Gobert at center.
