Whoops! Spurs' Sochan clears up the air with Westbrook 'bricks' answer

Sochan says Westbrook has been his "idol" since he was a young boy.

SAN ANTONIO β€” San Antonio Spurs rookie Jeremy Sochan says he meant no ill will towards Lakers' Russell Westbrook when he had a knee-jerk answer while playing a guessing game with fellow teammate, Malaki Branham.

In case you missed it, the Spurs' rookies were playing a word association game with Branham providing clues for Sochan to guess an NBA stat.

Clues were leaning towards "triple-double" when Sochan yelled "bricks" in response to Branham shouting that Westbrook can get plenty of them.

Sochan suddenly catches himself and looks at the camera behind him knowing he goofed up.

Sochan did get the phrase right, but took to Twitter to clear the air about his response.

To further clear up any misunderstanding, the rookie shared a photo of his younger self wearing a Westbrook Thunder jersey, calls the long-time NBA player as an "idol," and revealed his dog is named "Russ."

Obviously, there is no harm meant towards Westbrook, but it did stir up Bucks' Bobby Portis who did not take it as just a harmless answer.

Keep in mind, Westbrook has expressed that the "Westbrick" comment is something he does not appreciate. 

Overall, this is just a 19-year-old kid who just got caught up in a game and meant nothing malicious towards the former NBA MVP.

What do you have to say, Spurs fans? Was this just harmless fun? Let us know on Twitter at @KENS5, and at @JeffGSpursKENS5.
