For the record, I don't condone Pop being a jerk to the media anymore than I do Russ. But to Pop's credit, I've heard there are times he can be very gracious and respectfully to reporters. Not sure I've heard that's true of Russell.
And on Russ, he seems to think anything other than, "Russ, what do you feel like saying about the game tonight?" is a dumb question. Like last night he got asked about an altercation that occurred during the just concluded game. That's a reasonable area of inquiry, IMO, that a reporter's readers/viewers may want to hear more about. Not a "nonsense" question at all. And rather than just ignoring it and thereby prompting the reporters to keep asking about it in different ways, he could have just said, "you know what, that really had no impact on the game and I'm not going to comment on it." But no, he prefers to look at people like they're retarded, pretend their not there or just make up his own questions in his head. If people think that's cool, good for them, I guess.
