Russell Westbrook vs Berry Tramel, round whatever: the reporter strikes back

The Lost Ogle

Berry Tramel, editor at The Oklahoman, furthered his rep. Sorry, wouldn't normally post a negative FanPost, but this stemmed from the debate the other day, and just showed me more of Tramel doing this stuff.

There was a period of time today when the article was pulled down due to "site issues," but then re-posted with a key sentence from the end missing.

Here is the last paragraph:

Familiarity breeds contempt. I get that. But Friday night, in a game the Thunder desperately needed, Westbrook had a game for the ages. And he was mad at the world. Not just me. Mad at everybody. And when he no-answers The Oklahoman and the Thunder website and Channel 5 and The Sports Animal, he’s showing his complete disregard for fans. We’re not there to get our jollies. We’re there because we all have customers intensely interested in the Thunder. The people who buy tickets and the people who watch the games on television so that the Thunder can sell commercials and pay the bills.

This is the sentence that was ultimately cut (via Awful Announcing):

When Russell Westbrook says "good execution" to every question, what he’s really saying to the fans is, "I don’t like you."

This post does not necessarily reflect the views of the staff of Welcome to Loud City or SB Nation. However, it was made by one of the members of the Welcome to Loud City community, so there is a large chance the above post is extremely ballin'!
