Last season he seemed to be playing as a combo guard getting minutes at both SG & PG from the limited couple of OKC games I watched. But with them drafting Harden, it throws one more guard into the rotation.
So if they trade Watson, he should become full time backup PG. If so, I still think he has some game left in him.
I agree it has a lot to do with Watson. They seem to have decided that Westbrook is their future at the point, at the expense of benching Watson, who, in the games I saw, looked like he probably should have been the starter. (a bit like Brevin Knight fending off Felton for so long in Charlotte, only OKC decided just to go with the young fella and avoid the "battle")
Livingston is such a big kid but he and everyone who assesses him calls him a natural point. Would be nice if he could fill that combo guard role and quell Westbrook AND Durant. I never really saw the "next magic johnson/jason kidd" accolades in him when he was at the Clippers but I root for the guy. This will be a big season for him, he's healthy, he'll have the entire off-season and pre-season to prep for being a part of the Thunder. If there's going to be a breakout season, one would assume this is it.
And way less skilled to,a much lesser version but yes.
Of course Penny was much better, I just mean his size, passing ability and court vision reminded me of Penny.. Penny was one of my 5 or 10 favorite players when he was in his prime so I'm always excited about players somewhat similar.
