During the postgame presser following the Thunder’s series-clinching, Game 4 win over the Mavericks on Saturday, Jonathan Tjarks, reporting for Real GM, asked Russell Westbrook if he thought James Harden was worthy of receiving a maximum contract. It was a valid question. Harden, who scored a career playoff high in the game, was instrumental in the Thunder overcoming a late double-digit deficit.

Westbrook responded with your typical “he’s a great player yadda yadda yadda” non-answer. But apparently he didn’t like having to answer that question because when he was finished, he told Tjarks, “No more questions for you, bro.” And then, turn your volume up for this, he appears to mutter the word, “troll.”

The press room erupted in laughter after the quip. Tjarks thought it was funny, too, and didn’t take any issue with Westbrook. Here he is on Twitter joking about the situation with our pal Jose3030:

@jose3030: Lol. You hand the mic back to the PR person after you ask the question. Totally would have dropped a “thanks chief” otherwise.

Last month we shared with you a story about one NBA fan who met the Thunder at a casino and said Westbrook was a “d*ck.” Now we kind of see what that person meant.
