Turns out, Washington Wizards All-Star point guard John Wall isn’t the only player to curse at head coach Scott Brooks this season.
According to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, Wizards swingman Kelly Oubre hurled expletives at Brooks during a recent game.
According to sources, John Wall and Jeff Green also got into it and their player-on-player verbal altercation led to Coach Scott Brooks trying to intervene and that's when Wall hurled an expletive at the coach.

Scott Brooks is taking the brunt of his players’ frustrations. First John Wall berates him in practice, and then Kelly Oubre does it during a game. Things in the nation’s capital are really bad right now and they could get even worse.
The Wizards are 5-11 on the season. They have the second-worst defense in the NBA, as the team is giving up a whopping 116.9 points per game. The players don’t look like they want to play with each other. John Wall and Bradley Beal called out guys earlier in the year for playing selfishly.
Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld has to consider blowing this thing up and embarking on a rebuild. You can’t have multiple players cursing out a coach. It just can’t happen. It doesn’t paint your franchise in a good light. Even though the Eastern Conference is wide-open now that LeBron James is out West, the Wizards haven’t shown anything so far that gives off the impression they can turn it around and make a run.
