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.

that's the thing. u wouldn't fine them. access a technical foul on both individuals and continue the gm. guys just wanna talk and talk throughout the gm and when something happens there's a bunch of backpedaling and hold me backs. this would cut out all nonsense in the gm. every gm, there is nonstop talking. whether it's between players/coaches/refs, etc.
guys gonna be taking them mma classes in the offseasons laugh.gif

Russ agreed to be interviewed by fans, and treated them with disrespect and disregard, but yea, he only does this to media for saying he can't win and blah blah blah.

 

Dude is just a douche with a terrible wardrobe who thinks he's better than any situation.

 

I imagine Russ thinking of himself as that man in the Dos Equis commercials, the most interesting man In America.

Cereal question...do you guys know any reporters? My old college roommate is a Lakers beat writer and I've met some of his colleagues through him. They always end up talking about their worst experiences and I've never heard KD or Russ once. Pop doe?...yawp.

Also, Rose is at the top of the list.

Familiarity breeds contempt. I get that. But Friday night, in a game the Thunder desperately needed, Westbrook had a game for the ages. And he was mad at the world. Not just me. Mad at everybody. And when he no-answers The Oklahoman and the Thunder website and Channel 5 and The Sports Animal, he's showing his complete disregard for fans. We're not there to get our jollies. We're there because we all have customers intensely interested in the Thunder. The people who buy tickets and the people who watch the games (like @a-friend)on television so that the Thunder can sell commercials and pay the bills.

dont make this racial please.
Revealing/discussing an issue isn't making that issue, and keeping quiet about it doesn't eliminate it.

I have two sets of season tickets, one set is insanely expensive and pays Russ's salary(or helps)

 

I want some god damn reasonable answers in these interviews, and that's just the truth.

I feel it. I honestly haven't paid attention to any Clipper interview in years unless it was brought up in the middle of the bradcast. I turn the tv as soon as that funal buzzer sounds. No pregame, postgame, halftime bs. Just give me my basketball.


I have season tickets but thanks to Shoeking I see I'm wasting my money laugh.gif I'm only keeping them for the playoff tickets at this point.

Pop is cool with the beat writers (Jabari young, mcdonald) and other reporters behind the scenes. Russ and KD run the show in okc and it's a known fact that there is friction with the local media.

A few of my friends have met Russ around town and surprisingly said he was nice.

Would you rather have a player like Sessions who will give you a good interview or Russ who will win you games? That's exactly what will end up happening with the constant media complaining. Russ is being himself if you like it or not. I'd rather a player be himself (real) instead of put on a phony act to appease fans.

I mean it is what it is.

I'm just voicing my disdain with his disdain for me as a fan, is all.

i really wish Steph didn't turn the ball over on that last play. or that Klay didn't have a brain fart and called a TO the second he grabbed the board.

i mean son just came down and hit a 40 footer. And they get a stop. Very next play, he **** the bed. Bummer.

I don't think Russ has disdain for his fans.. his non-answers and rudeness to the media has nothing to do with the fans.
