Actually my previous statement was stupid, I should've said 1st player from the 1st Round out of the league because fringe 55-60 picks usually end up out of the league much earlier considering their contracts arent guranteed.
How does Westbrook stick in the NBA?
At best he molds himself into an athletic defensive PG, with the ability to slash to the basket and draw fouls.
When that athleticism is Gone, Westbrook is Gone.
And this dumbass still sort of stuck to the notion that Westbrook would be out of the league first? Or soon? Or relatively soon for where he was drafted? Whatever it is, dude did two complete 180s, going from saying he'll be the first out of the league, to saying he was wrong, back to saying he'll be the first player drafted in the first round out of the league and he'll go when his athleticism fades....even though it made no damn sense since Westbrook was 20 years old at the time. I don't even necessarily have a problem with the original post. A lot of us could be made to look stupid if people dug up things we posted about players before their rookie season. It's the fact that he still kept trying to defend his stupid ass logic after Westbrook's 15-5-5 rookie season that gets me.
Even after he had as good of a rookie season as he had despite being a still relatively raw SG converted to PG learning the job on the fly? Holy f**k I wish I had paid more attention then to this Interminator dude for the laughs.
Undersized SG slasher who will spend the early part of his career trying to be molded into a PG and will struggle because he doesn't possess the instincts and vision to be a successful NBA PG.
Westbrook is a slashing Monta Ellis type of SG but Monta Ellis has a track record of being a big time scorer who can create his own shot but Russell on the other hand never scored more than 22 Pts since the end of his HS career.
I'm sorry but Russell Westbrook will be the 1st player from this draft class who will be out of the league.
I mean, I can understand being very wrong in pre-draft predictions because you haven't seen them play in the NBA yet, but how could you watch Westbrook in his rookie and keep defending your initial assessment?
