ICYMI: Russell Westbrook said he doesn't pay attention while watching tape on upcoming opponents.
So, safe to say that Tracy McGrady was a pretty big advocate of film study, no? That was straight passion oozing through those airwaves. That made Kanye West's "I'ma let you finish, but..." look like an appropriate interruption. T-Mac dropping an R-Tard right on Russell Westbrook from the rafters without so much as a "is it my turn to speak yet?" hand raise to his co-panelists. Chauncey Billups deserves a goddamn title belt for rolling with those punches. ESPN might not be too happy and Michelle Beadle is undoubtedly going to ask for an increase in salary if she's also on babysitting duty, but that wasn't the worst analysis I have ever heard. I wouldn't go as far as describing it as "expert" because it was really nothing more than elementary name calling, but - in fairness - it was pretty accurate.
Like I said earlier, what we as fans love about Westbrook is that he's the athletic embodiment of 'IDGAF'. That doesn't change the fact that the only real way to describe his refusal to watch game tape is - excuse my french - retarded. Someone who is getting paid by a major corporation to talk about it live on air might want to think about biting his tongue until he can clean up the language up a little bit, but I'd say the general consensus is that what Russell Westbrook said makes him look incomprehensibly stupid. Calling him mentally handicapped might offend some people that aren't capable of putting up triple-doubles without proper preparation, but some other synonym for 'ignoramus' would have been spot-on commentary of the topic at hand.
