Next question! - Russell Westbrook on All-Star Game team-mate Joel Embiid

Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook was in little mood to discuss his beef with the Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid ahead of the pair being team-mates at the NBA All-Star Game.

The two men have history dating back to 2017 when Embiid waved at the Oklahoma crowd after Steven Adams had fouled out, an action that was mimicked by Westbrook when the Thunder went on to win.

In a 2018 meeting, Westbrook stared down the 76ers star and his team-mate Ben Simmons, who were on the sidelines as he dribbled out the clock for the Thunder to triumph again.

Last month, a furious Westbrook, whose side again came out on top, had to be restrained after a collision with Embiid and answered "f*** no" when asked after the game if the two were cool.

However, for one night at least the pair will have to put their differences aside when they are part of the same Team Giannis in the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday.

At a media day on Saturday, Westbrook was asked if he can get along with Embiid, to which he replied: "Next question."

Embiid, on the other hand, was a bit more willing to entertain the same question.

"I don't care," Embiid said. "The whole situation with him, he's fun, who cares. I'm willing to do whatever, but when we get on the court as opponents, I don't care. 

"I don't like him. I don't like anybody else. So, we're on the same team, I'm willing to work it out."
