They play the same position but they play it in a completely opposite manner. It depends on the other pieces you have. Westbrook looks to score. Rondo looks to set up his team mates. With a stacked team rondo is the best choice. On a mediocre team Westbrook's athleticism comes in to use.

Let me blow your mind. Imagine if westbrook were moved to the SG position and you throw Rajon at the PG. OVER!!!!

PG: Rondo
SG: Westbrook
C: Perkins
SF: Durant
PF: Ibaka

Could never happen though. just dreaming.

Westbrook, but they both play very differently and quite a few teams would be better off with Rondo than with Westbrook.

Rondo, he's actually a point guard.

I think they both play PG. Also, the topic says who is the better player. Not PG.

Stupid post.

Didn't we have this exact same thread like a week or two ago? They're two different types of point guards that fit in certain situations, depending how your teams built.

Id rather have Rondo on my team. But if youre talking about a guy who can carry a team on his back, its Westbrook. Westbrook definitely has more talent but I probably wouldnt want him on my team

Westbrook needs the ball in his hands to be successful.

Rondo would be able to get him the ball where ever westbrook wanted. Look how well avery bradley and rondo play together. avery cuts and rondo somehow gets the ball to him. Rondo will teach him how to play off the ball.

Rondo is great at running the offense, but he just can't put the ball in basket like Westbrook can, and I personally think he is overrated defensively, so I'd take Westbrook even with his no-brain style of basketball.

Tough choice. both are incredibly talented but also incredibly flawed for their positions.
