Russell Westbrook has a streak of 386 consecutive games played. What do you think his reaction would be if you asked him to sit out of a game?

“That'd be pretty good reality TV, huh? ‘The Sit.' As you know, as you're all well-aware, with a lot of our guys, when I sit them each half it's a ‘benching.' They love to play. They love the game. They love to compete. They love to be on the floor. It could be a game where we have a large lead, they want to play extra minutes. That's what I love about our competitive spirit. No, that's not going to be asked of Russell.”
