Ernie Johnson Jokingly Asks Westbrook "How Was The Execution Tonight?"

On Friday night Russell Westbrook raged at the media, refusing to answer questions with anything other than "we executed," and telling one reporter that he flat out didn't like him.

Column About Russell Westbrook Disappears, Comes Back With New Ending

The Oklahoman's Berry Tramel received the brunt of Russell Westbrook's ire when the point guard got surly on Friday night—Tramel is the one who Westbrook was addressing when he said, "I don't like you"—and this morning he published a column about the whole kerfuffle.

Paul Pierce Channels Surly Russell Westbrook In Postgame Interview

On Friday night, Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook pulled a Marshawn Lynch during his postgame media scrum, answering every question with some version of "we did a good job executing" before looking one reporter dead in the face and saying, "I just don't like you."

What's Going On With Russell Westbrook And The Media?

Last night Russell Westbrook submitted a line of 17 points, 17 assists, and 15 rebounds—becoming just the fourth player to ever do so—as the Thunder handily beat the best team in the league.

Russell Westbrook Out Four Weeks With Broken Hand

There goes the Thunder's plan for keeping the ship afloat while waiting out Kevin Durant's injury, as they will now be without Russell Westbrook for at least a month.

The Thunder Are The Thunder Again, And This Is A Brand New Series

I suppose we can go ahead and forget about the first two games of the Western Conference finals, which saw the Serge Ibaka-less Thunder getting swallowed whole by the Spurs while Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant did their best to fight off the inevitable.

Russell Westbrook To Kevin Durant: "Wake Up"

What we have here (via CJ Fogler) is an excellent opportunity for projection. A fairly innocuous exhortation from one frustrated player to another after a defensive lapse, but in the context of the Spurs' blowout, their 2-0 series lead, and Kevin Durant's and Russell Westbrook's shitty shooting night, feel free to… » 5/22/14 8:54am 5/22/14 8:54am

Kool Keith Gets Back Into Playoff Form With "Durant & Westbrook"

I would accuse Kool Keith of shamelessly pandering for sports-blog love by naming his new song "Durant & Westbrook" (off the upcoming Demolition Crash), but if by this point you haven't realized just how few fucks Hip Hop's King of Weird gives about the mainstream, then you haven't been paying attention. » 5/01/14 3:54pm 5/01/14 3:54pm
