An idiot told him his cheekbones went to the back of his head, he’s the most inefficient player ever and his career is a joke. Russ calmly sent his bodyguard to tell the security guard but they picked the wrong guy so my loud ass pointed out the ignorant heckler and he was gone!— Allison Wollam (@Allison_Wollam) December 30, 2019
