Russell Westbrook is no fan of the media, and he's borrowing a play from Marshawn Lynch to show it.
After Friday's victory against the Warriors, the Thunder guard engaged in a less-than-forthcoming media interview in which he repeated the same basic phrase -- "we did a good job of executing" -- over and over and over.
Asked by Oklahoma sports columnist Berry Tramel why he was being so standoffish, Westbrook offered what appears to be the only sincere answer in the whole interview: "I just don’t like you."
Read the full exchange below, as transcribed by NewsOK:
That second quarter run, why did that change the game?
Execution. Thought we did a good job of executing.
Down the stretch, you and Serge seemed to be in a really great rhythm. What allowed you to be so successful?
Did a good job of execution.
(Question about their small lineup)
Eight assists in fourth quarter. What did you see from them defensively that allowed that?
We did a good job of executing
(From Berry Tramel) Are you upset with something?
Nah. I just don’t like you.
You don’t like Nick (Gallo, Thunder reporter) either?
I love Nick. I don’t like you.
Well you gave us about the same answers.
Yeah. You got another question?
Played a great game. One of your better ones. Is this one of the better ones you can think of in your career?
Seemed like you played with a sense of urgency tonight. Has that been lacking in the past?
Did a good job of executing tonight.
Career-high 17 assists. How do you feel?
Good job of executing tonight.
