Berry Tramel: Russell Westbrook is a passionate player but emotionally immature at times
The Oklahoman’s Berry Tramel took questions from readers in today’s Power Lunch Chat. Take a look at today’s Q&A and join our Power Lunch Chats Monday-Friday at 11 a.m. on NewsOK.com/Sports.
No, I don't think Harden was the glue guy. Westbrook was pulling some of this stuff in years past. I don't think there's a chemistry issue, but there are some who believe the Thunder is getting weary of having to carry Westbrook's emotional weight. It's potentially a problem.
Will OU's football team be ranked in the top 25 at the start of next season?
Heck, yeah. Probably about 15th. Do you know how tough it is to find teams to fill out the last 6-7 spots in a poll. Top 25 is ridiculous. Top 20 was plenty.
Rumors on the Sports Animal that Mangino may be coming back. Any truth to that? And if so, why?
Well, I've heard the same rumors, but we'll see. The reason you bring back Mangino is he's a heck of a coach, and Stoops is trying to rekindle the magic. Of course, there's no opening right now. That could change. Stoops fired a coach last year for the first time ever. He could do the same.
