Despite shocking a lot people when they hooked up for an alley oop in the first quarter of the All-Star Game, Russell Westbrook proved that there is nothing more to it than just being a good basketball play as he continued dodging questions about his former teammate Kevin Durant.
During the post game interview on Sunday, the Oklahoma City Thunder guard responded by laughing at reporters when asked about making peace with Durant.
Both players were asked about the surprising big play they made, but they have both claimed it’s just any ordinary alley oop and nothing special to it.
It will be interesting how the two will conduct themselves during their team’s future battles as it has not been a secret that they might have a feud. It is believed that it all started last summer when Durant left the 28-year-old UCLA product and joined the team that eliminated them in the playoffs, the Golden State Warriors. That being said, reporters may just opt not to ask Westbrook questions about Durant anymore as they know he’ll just laugh at them.
