Russell Westbrook seems to enjoy messing around with reporters every so often. For instance, last season there was a funny moment when he poked fun at a reporter for asking a question with “big words.”
It happened again on Friday before the Thunder’s game against the Celtics. The Boston Herald‘s Steve Bulpett asked a question involving the word “pantheon” to which Westbrook told him to stop trying to get cute.
When Bulpett replied saying he’s not cute, Westbrook said, “You right about that.” Then, Westbrook went on to actually answer the question.
To be precise, I’m the one who told him, “I ain’t cute.” He just agreed… I’m holding out for “devilishly gruesome.”
