Fckn idiot.

I was pointing out that Maynor seemed like more perfect if you want Durant to keep his phase all throughout the game.

He might have an average game today but he still shooting 20% from the field this wcf( 40% during 1st and 2nd round) only averaging 3.0 assists plus an average turnover of friggin 4.0 a game

Your math is all types of wrong. 3-15 game1 + 7- 15game2= 10/20= 33.3%

Got that average from nba.com. Don't have time to look at the stat and compute it. Maybe it aint updated yet. Nevertheless 33.3% is still friggin low.

You're right, no way Rose would make 7 out of 15 shots. He'd be more like 5-15 but ESPN and everybody would still suck his dick and show all 5 makes (likely 2 drop behind a screen pullup jumpers and a few acrobatic layups) and make no mention of the misses and blame his teammates

Yeah, because Westbrook isn't being dependent on 99% of the time to score or create for others to score.

If Harden continues to progress like that.... Westbrook will become very expendable and tradeable for more assets

Harden should start, since Thabo doesnt really need to defend anyone from the Mavs guards

You really believe that after watching the exchange between Brooks and Westbrook when he took him out?

I got some beachside for sale in Arizona if your interested.

You don't sit your star point guard in the 4th quarter of the conference Finals unless you're trying to make a point.

No, it didn't. What won them the game was moving Collison to PF so he can guard Nowitzki and putting Ibaka back in his more natural role on the weak side. Compare when those two are on the floor to when Perk re-enters the game. It's a night and day difference.

this helped them win, but i won't say it was the deciding factor. brooks stuck with maynor because he was having a good game. westbrook could have gone in the last minute or so but i don't see the point. the bench had it going. westbrook has proven that he either forces shots or passes down the stretch in these playoffs. he's just too inconsistent. when he's good, he's really good. when he's bad, he's just really bad. he needs to gain patience and let plays develop.

looking at the other side, durant almost goes out of his way to defend westbrook. i thought his post-game presser was well said. he's a good teammate.

at the end of the day, this was a coaching decision and i think it was the right one for the most part. westbrook needs to take this in stride. i'm actually sort of surprised/satisfied that brooks made that decision. it had to be made because westbrook has to be reeled in at times. as a fan of the game, i hope he grows from this.
