Let's Take A Break From The Election To Laugh About This Russell Westbrook Quote
Hoo, boy! It’s getting pretty hairy out there. The state of electoral politics is sad, and disgusting, and gross, and really deserving of the vast majority of our focus right now. But can we just take a quick break from the depressing reality we find ourselves in to appreciate Russell Westbrook?
The Oklahoma City Thunder guard was asked about recent comments made by his former teammate and friend Kevin Durant, who departed Oklahoma for the Golden State Warriors over the summer. Durant recently talked openly about the selflessness and camaraderie of the Bay Area team.
When a reporter at practice on Thursday recited Durant’s quote to Westbrook, he responded in such a perfectly Westbrookian way that it should be typed up, printed out and framed somewhere within the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
“That’s cute, man,” he said. “That’s cute. My job is to be able to worry about what’s going on here. We’re going to worry about all of the selfish guys we got over here, apparently.”
Awesome. And now, back to the awfulness that is the U.S. Presidential Election.
