    Westbrook is now and always has been an extremely athletic child in a grown man’s body. He doesn’t deserve a chip and will never get one, unless we’re talking about a 40 year old, chasing-a-ring Westbrook riding the bench on a team with people who are actually willing to do what it takes to be champions.

    You're a slave. I understand were Westbrook coming from. You shouldn't be fined for that. That's the white people wanting control. I'm a black man and I hate the n.b.a. now I understand why Westbrook acts the way he acts. They want to mold the n.b.a into a plantation with the news media as the slave owners laying the ground work. I agree Westbrook was wrong but I understand why.

    I live in London and never really cared for Basketball a few years ago, but I watched that video on Vladtv of Westbrook saying he's doesn't like that interviewer and since then I've been a fan of him and have followed the NBA for a few years now. Stephen talks as if what Westbrook does is preventing the sport to grow, but I literally only watch it because of Westbrook's video in 2015. All publicity is good publicity. Having different characters is what keeps me interested

    Russell you will never win a championship title. Don't let your ego get to you. You aren't built for championship legends. You are not a championship caliber. If you beg to differ then get yourself some homie. Ever noticed that when a new athlete comes in to a league they aren't as egotistical and they're welcoming to any questions? They usually have a humble beginning in their career. As more years under their belt, make millions, and spotlights are on them they become more and act like Russel as an example. It's called ege and stupidity that comes along with it. Gone are the days that legends of sports in the old days wouldn't act the way stupid Russell does. Russell, your shit stinks. Check it next time, Check it again if it doesn't register.

    Mac is not a good analyst in basketball. It's not good to "contextualize" quotes because that CHANGES the meaning of what someone said to what the reporter want people think the athlete said, and that lacks truth and integrity.
