Reporter: Russell, are you excited that the players and owners were able to come to a deal in time to save the season?

Russell Westbrook: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: Are you looking forward to playing again?

RW: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: Do you think the fast-paced, shortened season will be beneficial for a young team like the Thunder?

RW: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: Have you ever answered a question with anything other than “definitely, definitely?”

RW: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: Seems dubious. Should I believe you?

RW: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: Sure, whatever. Back to the lockout. Will you understand if fans are upset that it took the league so long to figure this out?

RW: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: But don’t you think starting on Christmas Day is a nice way to win them back? After all, it’s one of the league’s best marketing opportunities.

RW: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: Come on, man. Is that really all you’ve got for me right now?

RW: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: Fine. I’ll play along. Has anyone ever told you you look like Doug E. Fresh?

RW: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: Mos Def?

RW: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: A small version of Daniel Orton?

RW: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: What would be a more self-assured name for Oasis’ debut album?

RW: Definitely Definitely.

Reporter: What happens to your hearing when a really loud noise is sounded right by your ear?

RW: Deaf finitely, deaf finitely.

Reporter: Oh, that’s a reach. Even for you. Seems like you’re ready for this interview to be over.

RW: Definitely, definitely.

Reporter: Me too.
