Oklahoma City Thunder: Russell Westbrook refuses to call FedEx Forum 'Grindhouse' Published: April 24, 2014

Russell Westbrook is being Russell Westbrook even in Memphis.

In an interview session with the media, the Thunder guard refused to acknowledge the Grizzlies' FedEx Forum by its menacing nickname "the Grindhouse."

Memphis area TV sports anchor Jarvis Greer asked Westbrook a question about the Thunder road record, saying "Your road record is one of the best in the NBA but talk a little bit specifically about playing here in the Grindhouse against this team."

Westbrook's reply: "You said the FedExForum? That's the name of the arena, right?" Westbrook then went on to call it FedEx forum again - the arena's proper name.
