True.

You just proved my point, there were only 3 real scoring options on that Thunder team last year.
Westbrook was the only PG/SG with an actual interest in scoring, yet he did it inefficiently.

.come on..yeah im sry if i judged A ROOKIE by getting 18/5/5..anybody else will tell u ur out ur mind..yeah his jump shot is going to get better..look at Tony Parker who couldnt shoot when he first got in the league..now he is a all-star and finals MVP..learn some basketball and be quiet cuz u sound ridiculous..
He didnt average 18/5/5.

He averaged 13/5/5 on a high uptempo team which allows him to grab more boards than usual for his position, while only averaging 5 APG as a full time PG compared to 3+ Turnovers while shooting a low FG%.

Tony Parker is not a good comparison at all, Tony Parker doesnt rely on his athleticism the way Westbrook does, statistically at the same point Parker was a better passer, and Parker was drafted #28 not #4 like Westbrook was.

You know another PG who couldn't shoot as a rookie?

Marcus Banks
Sebastian Telfair
Antonio Daniels


We'll see if Westbrook develops a jumper over time.
