Thunder’s Russell Westbrook is sick and tired of speaking about dancing
The Oklahoma City Thunder and Dallas Mavericks are tied 1-1 in their first-round playoff series, and Kevin Durant had a historically awful shooting night on Monday. All anybody desires to speak about, though, is Mavericks forward Charlie Villanueva (and Justin Anderson, but the rookie has largely gone unnoticed here) interrupting Russell Westbrook and Cameron Payne’s pregame dance routine.After Monday’s game, Westbrook told reporters, “That’s for guys who don’t play.”Villanueva fired back, saying, “If you want to go dancing and stuff like that, go to a evening club, go to a club and dance. Go to ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and be a dancer.” He said this in a Fox Sports video filmed in the back of a car.After Wednesday’s practice, Westbrook decided he did not want to keep the storyline going, via ESPN’s Royce Young:Westbrook: “If you guys want to speak about basketball, I’m open to that but I’m not going to keep speaking about dancing.”— Royce Young April 20, 2016Westbrook explained that “some guys want some attention, but I’m not going to give the guy no more attention.”Payne, however, was happy to talk about it.
