I would agree with that Voice of reason!!@clayhorning I think we can get caught up in drama and act like things are bigger than they are. Like Russ deciding I won’t answer his questions to me I probably disagree with Russ, doesn’t make him a bad person.Beat Writer / Columnist
This is a big question. I get it, because Rubio really seriously is a GREAT defender. He just can’t do s___ vs. Harden. Most can’t, but Rubio ESPECIALLY can’t. Should fight to get over the screen more to deny the switch. That’s what OKC would do.@HPbasketball I don’t even understand why the Jazz (lazyly) switch that every time at the end of the game. Jazz gave this away with scheme and execution.Blogger / Podcaster
Nobody’s demanding answers, but I think it’s true the only losers in this little drama are Russell and the team he plays for. We all love how hard he plays the game. We’re programmed to like him personally because of it, though he makes it needlessly difficult sometimes.Beat Writer / Columnist
RT @KOCOCarson: Funniest thing about the Tramel/Westbrook deal is Russ couldn’t pick a more respected, infallible journalist to hold a grudge against. I can’t imagine how the Thunder fans (who defend Russell’s actions) would react if it were someone not of Berry’s professionalism and fairness.Beat Writer / Columnist

RT @DavidAFrench: When evaluating the Mueller report, there are important questions beyond the existence of a conspiracy. A free people should ask what kind of man they want at the helm of the world's greatest nation. It should not be this man: https://t.co/M44Tg89OafBeat Writer / Columnist
