After a recent victory, the Oklahoma City Thunder guard repeated the same phrase to sports columnist Berry Tramel, “we did a good job of executing” — again and again.
Then, Westbrook told like it is when Tramel asked him if he was upset. He said, “Nah. I just don’t like you.” Read the full interview transcribed by NewsOK.
That second quarter run, why did that change the game?
Execution. Thought we did a good job of executing.
Down the stretch, you and Serge seemed to be in a really great rhythm. What allowed you to be so successful?
Did a good job of execution.
(Question about their small lineup)
Eight assists in fourth quarter. What did you see from them defensively that allowed that?
We did a good job of executing
(From Berry Tramel) Are you upset with something?
Nah. I just don’t like you.
You don’t like Nick (Gallo, Thunder reporter) either?
I love Nick. I don’t like you.
Well you gave us about the same answers.
Yeah. You got another question?
Played a great game. One of your better ones. Is this one of the better ones you can think of in your career?
Seemed like you played with a sense of urgency tonight. Has that been lacking in the past?
Did a good job of executing tonight.
Career-high 17 assists. How do you feel?
Good job of executing tonight.
