Most overstated POS on this forum and in the outside world.
Westbrook gets alot of flack, but is still in the upper tier (top 10 easy) of players in the league. The sad thing in your statement is that Maynor is currently in a fight with Reggie Jackson for the backup point role.

Dont underrate the fact that OKC got to the finals last year under both KD's AND WB gameplay. But hey, keep underrating him. I am sure every team in the league would jump at the opportunity to pick him up if given the chance.

Look at PG numbers against Westbrook, he is not as good as a defender as you think

Better than Francis and Marbury. At least dude gives effort, they didn't. I didn't say he's that good defensively, he's better than two players you mentioned though.

It's not like he can't play PG either, had 8APG first 2 years, then Brooks asked him to score more.

But yea I am sure 40 year old Nash that's barely Top 20 is better atm. Few extra assists are irrelevant when WB scores those assisted buckets himself. Then Nash's energy and defense completely turns the scales in WB's favor. Nash may be a better PG, but WB is the better player and more deadly to opposing defenses.
Excellent post.

you mean even their main rotation bench? most of the guys who played in the 3rd will either be cut or not in the rotation. only Hill and Jamison will.

lol at people in this thread hating on Westbrook. The guy is one of the best players in the league. To say he has a negative affect on the Thunder is ridiculous.

Comparing Westbrook to Marbury is insulting to Westbrook. Marbury was a selfish asshole who never won crap in his career. He was a stat padding loser and was also a defensive liability.

Name the last team that won the championship with a point guard that looks to score more than anyone else on the team?

A point guard looking to score is similar to a QB looking to run instead of pass. Think about it. You have to have someone facilitate.

Just answer the question? or can you not?
This era of new PG's have barely had a chance to win a title, Westbrook went close, it can and will happen.

The same Lakers fans saying "It means nothing, preseason" would be talking SO much shit if the Lakers were the ones winning by 25.
