Default Russell Westbrook analysis

Your thoughts on Russell Westbrook?

Obviously those of you who saw him play a lot in college will know more about him than those who are just seeing him in summer league, but still, even if you just caught his orlando league games, what's your take on him?

Strengths? Weaknesses?

I go to UCLA and saw him first hand in a couple of games
i felt the guy was underrated especially with Love on that team, the kid has got game and i predict he'll have one of those long careers like samIam maybe 2 or 3 allstar games

with Durant-Green +next years lotery pick he has alot of talent to dish too..
career avgs of 13pts 7.8 ast 4 reb 2 stls
with allstar season of 18 pts 12 ast ect..

Westbrook is one of the strongest and quickest guys I have seen and the best player I have ran against in an open court (I've ran with alot of SoCal guys like Ariza, the entire Shipp family, Marcus Williams to name a few.)

Westbrook uses both his strength and quickness to get to the rim at ease. I think Westbrook can be compared to how Steve Francis played in his prime. A very athletic and fast guard that can attack the rim but needs work on his jumper. Like alot of players Russell can hit the 3 with regularity when his feet are set but he will have to start working on creating that shot for himself. Defensively, Russell is NBA ready. I've seen him shut down guys like Kevin Durant, Nick Young, Jeff Trepagnier, and Jason Kapono just to name a few in open runs.

He is fast, explosive, he has decent touch.

For now thats all I can tell you because things change in the NBA.
