An NBA game announcer is in hot water after saying Russell Westbrook was playing so well Thursday night … he was “out of his cotton-picking mind.”

Dude. Bad. 

We get it … FOX Sports Oklahoma play-by-play guy Brian Davis (white dude) was trying to say Westbrook was playing on another level (he became the first player in NBA history to average a triple double 2 years in a row). 

But, when you make a cotton reference about a black guy …it’s not usually well received. 

That’s exactly what happened Wednesday night — people are losing their minds about the comment. Some people are even suggesting Davis should be fired. 

There’s been a long debate about the origin of the expression — some people say it was used as a slur plantation owners used toward slaves. 

We’re reaching out to the Thunder for comment.
