Get ready, NBA fans, because we just got our first (delightful) look at angry Russell Westbrook.
Speaking at training camp following OKC’s preseason loss to the Mavericks on Tuesday, a reporter asked Westbrook about these comments from Westbrook’s former teammate, Kevin Durant, earlier this week:
“I wanted to see if what I’ve heard and what I’ve seen on the outside is really true. Do these guys really genuinely love each other? They work together. You hear family a lot. That’s just a word sometimes, but this is really a lifestyle here. You can feel it when you walk in the door, in the practice facility, everybody is just together. That’s something that I can appreciate as a basketball player and someone who values relationships. You can tell that that’s what they stand on, that’s what we stand on.”
That remark was concerning Durant’s new team, the Golden State Warriors. Asked what he thought about them, Westbrook gave a brilliantly devious response:
“That’s cute. My job is to worry about what’s going on here, we’re going to worry about about all the selfish guys we’ve got over here, apparently.”
