In a post-game interview, Russell Westbrook got angry with a reporter who questioned him about changes that needed to be made for the team. The Los Angeles Lakers had just been defeated by the Dallas Mavericks in a game they had to win to stay in the play-in tournament. Westbrook felt the need to slap back at the reporter, making it seem like asking the question was an attack on his game.


After being asked to address their loss, they slipped to 11thth place in the Western Conference, he said, “Nothing at all. We still have games to play, other teams still have games to play. We still have to play against teams that are ahead of us in the play-ins. What do you think should change? I don’t have an answer. ” In an apparent misunderstanding, the reporter simply defended himself by saying: “I do not have it. I don’t play Russell. I ask the pros who know the game and play the game.”

Chris Canty opened up on ESPN about the way Westbrook handled the question. He criticized the player for his unnecessary attitude towards the reporter and urged him to be more aware, which would dodge the answer “I have no answer.” He said, “The only thing I ask of Russell Westbrook is that you have some awareness and understand that tone and beat are important when delivering your post-game press conference.”

β€œThe fact that you answer a question with a question the way he did gives no reason to be passive-aggressive towards members of the media, they have a job to do. So when they ask you what is wrong or what needs to be changed, you give your honest assessment of what you think, or when you don’t have an answer, you say you don’t have an answer. But don’t flip it on them and say, ‘What do you think needs to change?’”
