NBA will review lettering on Kelly Oubre Jr.’s coat
Today, we learned that Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr. isn’t a fan of subtlety. After his involvement in last week’s in-game skirmish with the Golden State Warriors, Oubre could find himself back in the headlines for the wrong reason. Again.
This time, it’s because of a questionable choice of clothing he wore when he arrived at Capital One Arena Friday for a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Oubre was seen walking to the locker room wearing a jacket with a series of lettered vulgarities splashed across the back of the outfit.
Oubre even seemed to take pride in sporting the jacket, as he turned around to let everyone in the vicinity see the repeated “F— You” verses stitched on it.

According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, Oubre should expect a call from the league’s office soon.
The NBA is planning to review Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr.’s decision to wear a jacket with offensive language to his team’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night.
The NBA has a dress code for players on game nights and has the option to issue fines for violations.
We’re not sure what made Oubre go to the game wearing the said outfit, but it’s definitely not inspired by Tim Duncan. This isn’t the first time this year that an athlete tried to get attention by wearing something with such offensive language on it. UFC star Conor McGregor had one back when he was promoting a boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather.
LeBron James made sure he had the biggest manifestation of “f— you” in the tonight’s showdown, though it came in a more refined manner, as the four-time MVP dropped 57 points in a 130-122 win over Washington.
