Russ Goes Off On Reporter When Asked About Kawhi
 

 
Oram: Hey Russ, on the PG front, before he ended up with the Clippers, there was some reporting that you had some interest maybe in joining up with Kawhi. Iím just curious how you look back at it, and how you think that story has played out for the two of you since that moment.

Russ: Reports from who?

Oram: I think there were a couple of different reports over this summer that you had maybe had some conversations with Kawhi and then that was used maybe to faciliate PG coming to the Clippers.

Russ: I know. You didnít tell me who it was from. If you canít tell me who you got it from then I canít answer the question.

Oram: Like what outlets?

Russ: Yeah. I want to know who you got it from.

Oram: I think there was an ESPN report, there was an Athletic report. Itís been out there.

Russ: I know. From who, though?

Oram: Uhh. I donít have the inĖ

Russ: Ahh. Well then I donít got an answer for you, neither. You canít tell me who you got it from, then I donít really know.

Oram: So is that not true?

Russ: I asked you who you got it from, you canít give me an answer, right? You gotta find a different question.

Oram: That was a different question.

Russ: Well, sorry for you Bill.

Oram: Is it true?

Russ: Where do you get your question from? Whoís your source?

Oram: I got it from reading about the NBA.

Russ: OK, and who did they get it from, do you know?

Oram: They got it from the people they talked to.

Russ: And who was that?

Oram: For all I know it was you. Was it you?

Russ (laughs): I donít talk to the media, canít be me.

Dan Woike (Los Angeles Times): Honestly, were you interested in coming to play in LA with Kawhi Leonard?

Russ: You asked me a question based off a story that someone else had written, but you donít know where they got it from, or you donít know if itís true.

Woike: I would say the erosion of relationships between athletes and reporters has made this awkward.

Russ: Iím talking about for me. I donít know what nobody else do. I have no relations with no media outlet where they come to me and go, Ďhere, Russ, I got a source for you.í Thatís not what I do, and now you guys know that.

Reporter: I understand that. Like I said, I think thatís where, like, people speak for you or speak around you and thatís what happens.

Russ: I donít let nobody speak for me. If you donít hear it from me, donít go with, Ďthe source said.í Sources will get you in trouble.

Kyle Goon (SCNG): Donít you think itís fair that now that reports are out there, that we come to you and ask?

Russ: You can ask. Itís how you ask it, though. Itís how you ask the question. Where you get it from. Thatís very important. How you ask it, itís different, itís very direct Ö Bill asked it with a bunch of b*llsh*t in the question. Thereís just a difference. You ask me very direct, ĎHey, you know duh duh duh?í Simple. I can tell you Ďnahí or I can keep it to myself.

Woike: To be fair, you didnít really answer the original question.

Russ: I didnít, and he didnít answer mine either. So, if Bill donít know where he got his question from, his source from, then I guess I donít know anything either.

Reporter: Itís just like, as we deal with agents and stuff like that, thatís where this sh*t happens. This is like part of it.

Cross talk and laughter around the room.

Russ: Itís just important that you know where your sources of information are coming from. I understand that there are a lot of sources Ö Ramona reported a story about Kawhi. I never talked to Ramona.

Reporter: What if Kawhi said it?

Russ: I doubt it.

Then he smiled and everybody laughed.

He said at the end Ramona made the story.

It’s the fact that if you’re a reporter and you’re gonna ask a professional athlete about murmur… have your sources backed. Especially with how these reporters like to throw these bs rumor mills out hollering out some “sources”

Reporters in sports want athletes to write their columns for them. You can tell by how they ask questions. Oram asked some bullsh*t. He created a narrative and simply wanted to plug Russ’ comments in.


fu*k that.


Sports journalism is the worst sect of journalism easily. The fu*kers are so lazy, craven and obviously biased. Not to mention sensitive.

Lol russ handled himself well on that one. Expect him to spazz and leave but he handled it mature, despite answering a question with a question.

they did that to jordan Poole too. After he had a good game, IGUODALA and Kerr were like he's good now the next level is hin getting to the line...

Journalist says "how are you handling criticism from teammates about your success"

Russ did exactly what he should

Best quote:

Russ: I don’t let nobody speak for me. If you don’t hear it from me, don’t go with, ‘the source said.’ Sources will get you in trouble.

I've been puzzled as to why players and fans don't question this more often. n*ggas see a headline and just fly w/ it. Specifically basketball where agents, gms etc manipulating media to get their way

Media n*ggas frustrated cuz he sayin real sh*t. He using their methods against them
