It wasn't cute when Marshawn did it. But at least he and Pop have rings which is more than I can say for Russ.

Spurs put the beat-down on Portland. Kawhi is back and they are at full strength- predicting a 3 seed.

Does he think he's smart or something? What a fucking idiot. "I like Nick, I just don't like you." So that's his excuse for being an asshole?

I remember last time some dumbass reporter asked did the Jazz win tonight or did you guys lose? And then westbrook left. Tbh a lot of these questions are asinine but it is also kind of rude

The dynamics here are more subtle than being a dumbass reporter.

I'm sure if they had every freedom in the world, they'd as guys if they had too much pussy last night and needed a rest day, or how much he lost at cards, but they need to ask boring generic questions or the player will act like an imbecile like Westbrook did, or the league will shut them down, or countless other dynamics that keep the show clean and tidy for public consumption and league image. Do you actually believe these interviews are news? It's not. It's just a wheel in the publicity machine. The newspaper wants a juicy tidbit, but it's unlikely to happen, and the league can cut them off at the drop of a hat, so it's a fine line.

Being a reporter in these situations is a no win. You're a total weenie in the face of a superstar over-ego'd athlete and can get treated like you're a nothing at the player's whim. So yeah, reporters ask inane stupid questions, but you seem to think asking real questions is allowed. To suggest the player doesn't know this reporter's question is just a cog in the publicity wheel suggests the person listening for a different result is actually the stupid one.

Westbrook acted like a total asshole, nothing will happen. If the reporter did that, you'd have a different outcome.

shit man, wiggins trade might have been a bad idea too.

it's too reactionary but wiggins' #s are phenomenal recently, and love's fit on cleveland has been much worse than anticipated.
