Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook was seemingly not in the mood to talk to reporters again on Wednesday night judging by his comments.

The Thunder suffered an embarrassing 130-91 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, and Westbrook was available for media questions after the game.
However, this isn’t the first run-in he has had this season after his infamous “good execution” media session, and it most probably won’t be the last of his career either.

Given that OKC suffered such a heavy defeat, it is no surprise that Westbrook was in a bad mood and wasn’t particularly interested in giving the media answers.
However, the 26-year-old needs to realise that it is part of his obligations and if he wants to continue down this road then he will surely be alienating them and perhaps even fans with his attitude.
There is fault on both sides, but there is no point in making the situation worse than it already is, but it is also important to note that he is right when stating that the OKC defense has been poor for the last five games and only now it was mentioned.
Nevertheless, it would arguably have mattered little to Westbrook when it was brought up, and with teammate Kevin Durant similarly having issues with the media this season, there is clearly an irritation within the group when it comes to talking to reporters.
With the amount of scrutiny that coach Scott Brooks and the players come under, it is perhaps only natural that the pair would react the way that they are.
