Perennial All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook does not meet Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s standard for a superstar. Cuban, meanwhile, comes up short in Kevin Durant’s standard for smarts.
Westbrook was asked about his reaction to Cuban’s comments after the game, but Durant interrupted, putting his hand over Westbrook’s microphone. “He’s an idiot,” Durant said of Cuban. “He’s an idiot. All right. That’s what we’ve got to say about that. He’s an idiot. Next question.”
