Do you remember the press conference a year ago when Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook (both on the Oklahoma City Thunder at the time) were at the podium following Game 5 of their playoff series versus the Dallas Mavericks?

In it, Westbrook (who had just gone off for 36 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists) was asked what he thought of Mavericks owner Mark Cuban saying he (Westbrook) wasn’t a “superstar” in the league. 

Before Westbrook could even get his mouth to the microphone, Durant stepped in and said “Hold up” to Westbrook, and then said into his own mic,

He’s an idiot.

That scene perfectly describes how I feel every time someone asks me about the comments Jason Whitlock made about Jameis Winston on Fox Sports 1 on Tuesday.
