Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams said fans attending Monday night’s Cavaliers playoff game against the Pacers will be safe.
The city has been on edge since Sunday afternoon when a man identified as Steve Stephens, shot and killed Robert Godwin, a passerby who was at the wrong place at the wrong time. Stephens then uploaded video of the killing to Facebook, where he warned he had killed several others. Police have only verified one killing.
But with the Rockets and Thunder facing off the the first round of the NBA playoffs, Westbrook made it clear that his friendship with Harden will be nonexistent on the court.
When I get on the floor, I got one friend, and that’s the basketball, Westbrook said, via ESPN. I’ve been like that since I was a little kid. My dad told me that when I was younger, ‘You got one friend and your friend is Spalding. At the time maybe it was Wilson or some other s—.’
Whatever the ball is, that’s who my friend is.
Even though they pitted against each other in the MVP race this season, Harden maintains he will always have a solid friendship with Westbrook.
Since 10 years old. That’s never gonna change, Harden said at the Rockets’ shootaround Sunday morning.
