Russell Westbrook’s Priceless Postgame Comments After Ejection

Reggie Jackson, Russell Westbrook

Call it schadenfreude because we’ve also been stuck on the receiving end of tired refrains from athletes in a post-game press conference, or when we deign to enter the fray of a locker room media scrum, but Russell Westbrook refused to talk about what got him tossed right before the half in last night’s 137-134 OT Thunder win over the Suns. He repeated the same answer regardless of the question — similar to Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and his own pithy comments that failed to answer any questions. Read More »

Utah’s Quin Snyder Uses “Mute” Coaching Move And It Works

Quin Snyder

The Minnesota Timberwolves went on a 10-0 run to start the fourth quarter last night, extending their lead to 82-72 after it was tied up at the end of the third.

George Hill, Jimmy Butler

If you want an example why Bulls wing Jimmy Butler is having a transformative year for the Bulls, his comments after Monday night’s 92-90 win in Indiana — Chicago’s seventh straight — works. After helping the Bulls win with his go-ahead three-pointer just outside of a minute to play, he could only lament his defense on Chris Copeland after the game. Read More »

Kobe Bryant, Carlos Boozer

We haven’t written about it, but a recent fight erupted on Twitter over Kobe Bryant. Besides being roughly the millionth such squabble about the Lakers’ polarizing star, it spread a feeling of melancholy on Christmas Day, so we avoided it.

Juwan Howard, LeBron James

The Heat beat the Cavs on Christmas Day. The Cavs just aren’t that good; they fall asleep on defense, particularly in the paint, and they have a tendency to play isolation basketball late in games. Still, the Heat are no longer a title contender after LeBron James left to join the Cavs this summer, which is why the entire Heat bench was staring LeBron down towards the end of their 101-91 win.
