The way alot of players in sports respond in interviews is as if they and the coach / manager / what have you never actually...talk. Does anyone know if that is just indeed true or if this is the players' way of keeping things out of the public?

Just seems odd to me to not otherwise say "hey coach, what you need from me?" [we know the answer, but Russ here at least in his own interesting world view appears confused]

Garbage players that play a ton of minutes!
Pure garbage both of them


They both went full Kuzma mode 1000%
Hard to play with Lebron and AD?? BS

Malik, Austin, and Stanley are living proof it can be done.
Terrible preparation for Russ and Talen.


Some can handle being support/role players. Others are wired into thinking that they are supposed to be in the spotlight.

Nah. More than that

Some revealing remarks from Russell Westbrook, who subtly, but very obviously, fired back at Frank Vogel and the coaching staff tonight:

I think one or both them are gone soon. With Westbrook’s contract, it looks more like Vogel

Westbrook has no self awareness at all. Such dumbass comments!

So hoping that Pelinka can move him by Thursday. But doubt he can unless making an absurd lopsided trade. How are James and Davis not taking this guy out and kicking his A.

Firing Vogel is a mistake. Players on the court are the ones being outworked and outplayed. Amazing to see the difference of one team that cares about competing and the other just going through the motions.

Giving up 78 pts in the first half? Going down by 30pts on your home court?
So disappointing.

Totally guessing here, but I honestly believe he is of the "I make millions, you do not" mind set therefore he is better than all asking him any questions thus, does not give a #@!$

It's as good as explanation as any at this point. What a dumpster fire.


May be something that needs to be asked.

The simple answer is Westbrook has lost his confidence. He's aiming his jumper not shooting it. He's not fluid in his rim rushes, he's trying too hard not to miss. He's forcing his passes. On the whole, his game is way off and IMO it's in his head.

I get the love you have for him, but no way in hell anyone actually thought he was.
