Default Lettuce be frank: Russell Westbrook is NOT a top 5 PG at all

Stop overrating this lone-wolf who drives Durant crazy every now and then. The top 5 PGs in the current league are CP3, Deron, Rose, Rondo and Nash, no way Westbrook is even close to this list.

What an awful time to create this thread

Westbrook in the past 5 games
26.2 ppg, 4.4 apg, 4.4 rpg, 51.5% fg, 35.3% 3p, 83.3% ft.

Westbrook has been playing great, his assists should be higher but that's just how the Thunder run and play their offense.

And Westbrook is easily a top 5 PG in the NBA, can you name me 5 better outside of Rose, CP3, and probably Deron?

Default Re: Lettuce be frank: Russell Westbrook is NOT a top 5 PG at all

He's the only PG in the top five in the league in scoring, and he's averaging 23.5, 5 reb, 5 ast and two steals per.


To say he isn't a top five PG is pretty ridiculous.

Just because Russ is not a traditional point guard doesn't mean he isn't a top five PG.

I mean, is LeBron was officially listed as a PG, I would consider him a Top Five PG, wouldn't you?

Why people always have to put CP3 before Deron. I hope it is not in order or else

Westbrook is top 5 this year not CP3. The man is clearly not in shape physically. And he continues to be overrated years after years.

That's exactly what he did. You might disagree, but he did tell you the 5 he thought were better.



This is really a hater thread, so there's no reason to pay it too much attention. It's also very bad timing. I'd have him 2nd Team All-NBA right now.



But the 5 he mentioned are all better. To say it's ridiculous is ridiculous. He's not as good as Rajon Rondo, who has done it at a higher level, for longer, and in the playoffs. And Steve Nash is the exact same player. Add that that the top 3 is agreed upon as being top 5. There you go.

How the hell you have all these players and not average 10+ assists? Boozer looks like a scrub when he plays with Rose. With D-Will he was an All-star, so who's the real problem? Thibodeau? or Rose?

You can leave your biased Rose hatred outside the thread since Rose isn't even apart of this discusion....

With ease. Deron, CP3, Rose, Rondo, Parker, Nash.

At least LBJ is averaging 7 assist per game and even as a PG no doubt he is the best.
