A few days ago, Russell Westbrook gave an uncomfortable, tense interview where he kept giving short answers and using the word “executing” a lot. He even said to a beat reporter that he didn’t like him. It was awkward, to say the least.
On Tuesday night, Ernie Johnson interviewed Westbrook after their win over Miami. Guess what Ernie asked about:
Russell laughed it off and it’s nice to see that side of him. He probably just was in a bad mood in general and, sometimes, it’s just the wrong place and wrong time (although Russ doesn’t have the greatest rep with the media).
But good to see Russ take that segment in stride.
