The Utah Jazz won at home last night, which left the OKC Thunder feeling salty. Kevin Durant complained about Jazz fans, and Russell Westbrook reacted hilariously to a dumb question from a member of the media in the postgame locker room. Per the Oklahoman: “Westbrook simply walked off. The temperamental team captain got fed up with a reporter’s question and suddenly turned his back and ended the interview before walking away. The exchange was as follows. ‘Russell, did you guys lose this game, or did the Jazz win this one?’ Westbrook: ‘Whaaaaat? Bro, what are you talking about, man? I’m out man. Y’all n***** trippin’.”

^ Maybe the reporter intentionally did it too knowing very well how vulnerable a target Westbrook is.

Not a stupid question to ask, if you're a leader like people think Westbrook is, you're supposed to take the hard questions on the chin and own up, take the blame for your teams actions. Even if it's not your fault.

Stupid question? He basically just asked, "Could you have played better? Or did the Jazz outclass you"

Ok he snapped once since he started playing in 2008. Big deal. Hes there to play basketball not to deal with media, as long as hes trying his hardest to help his team on the court no OKC fan gives a rip how he deals with the media. Same goes for our guys in my eyes.

He was emotional and upset about the loss, I wish some of the Lakers played with that much passion

I'm glad you're not a reporter.
The game changes, the players turnover, but the Mamba remains a constant!

Why do people care about Russel Westbrook and how he reacts to things!?!? obviously he's passionate about the game and gets irritated easily so what... who cares he's an emotional dude move on

LOL as true as that may be I think we should just stick to actually basketball discussions and not get into why people are having outburst or anything outside of basketball
