Question Westbrook has LeBron AND Kobe in him, not just LeBron, so why do Kobe stans keep...

...hating on Westbreezy like he's just a pure B ran clone?

Westbrook

- Doesn't care about his FG% and WANTS to take the last shot of the game/at the end of the shot clock/quarter.

- Doesn't look to be bailed out by teammates and wants to take FULL responsibility for the win/loss by taking the last shot.

- Isn't afraid to shoot contested long range jumpers regardless if they are falling or not.

Yes, he also 'statpads' and gets a lot of boards and dishes like B ran, but he's a lot more alpha and has more of a 'not give a f uck' attitude like Kobe with regards to protecting his %'s and efficiency stats.

So how did he become a B ran talking point and a Kobe stan's worst nightmare? Just doesn't make any sense.

It is well known and accepted that Westbrook plays with a Kobe like serial killer instict. How is he hated by Kobe fans?

Westbrook got cucked by a rookie in the playoffs. He may not give a f#ck about anything, but he's a loser.

His IQ is around the 60s, just like his brother's.

It's true he def has some of both in him. Not nearly as good as either but bits and pieces of both, including including MJ.

Westbrook and Kobe are very similar. both low efficient high volume shooters that prefer to play for their stats rather than for the win

Both also have notable drop offs from the regular season to the postseason

Both also take a lot of possessions off defense to focus on stuffing the stat sheet on the offensive end

He also takes who he faces in the playoffs, in him.

He had Melo on his team, doe. I think a healthy Roberson and Meloless Thunder is a different story altogether.

Melo was not making Dumbassbrook from taking 80 shots in 2 games, and nothing from that changes that he got cucked by a rook. Will the Melo excuse stand this upcoming season when the Rockets make the WCF yet again?

Nobody on that OKC squad liked playing with Melo. I doubt that changes.

Rox defense will go down.

I agree with all of you have said, but people need to stop blaming every single problem OKC had on Melo. As I said before, there is no reason for a mediocre shooter to take 40 shots apiece 2 games in a row.

He wasn't jacking those shots at the start of the game. If you watched instead of reading the boxscore, he started putting up shots when his team fell behind and his teammates were not stepping up. He led them on the comeback to win 1 of those games and he lost a close game in the 2nd. He gave them a fighting chance, would you prefer they lose in blowout fashion with him playing the right way?
