            Westbrook is legend but more talented than Dwyane Wade, Max I knew you liked to smoke but after you saying oil Pierce gets to have a conversation against Wade and now you tweakin homie.

              What legacy? His legacy is he falls apart when the team needs him the most. That legacy is in tact. Until they fire Ole Sam and trade Westbrook they aren't going anywhere.

                Steven- you just figured this out! Westbrook is so over rated. STOP TALKING ABOUT HIS EFFORT! He's not playin tee ball, where everyone gets a trophy!

                    Without contributing offense LeBron has shot 35% and 39% in finals at 6 8. But you like him and he doesn't throw up gang signs or say next question. Give him a call inside I'd bet he'd shoot less. 💯

                      People who hail Westbrook are blind. Or maybe stat fiends. Westbrook has been nothing but a team cancer nearly his whole career. If playing with Lebron is toxic whats it like playing with Westbrook? Idc how talented you are. Bball is a team effort. One on one, yeah Westbrooks your guy all day long. But for a team with good ball rotation, good D, etc thanks, next pick please.

                                R. Westbrook is an exciting athlete. Period. these talking heads need to challenge themselves to be credible. He plays with passion and energy.

                                          We are in an era where a player shakes off his coaches decision to come out of the game. What makes him "unstoppable" ironically makes him "stoppable." He'll end up like Sir Charles...HOF, no ring. I remember when Durant defended Westbrook saying "He'd run through a wall for me" ...It only took one more season to realize Russ was running through the wall for himself. Bad decision making, time/clock management, consumed with padding his stats...I think it's baked in to his personality.

Questionable decision making, can’t shoot at all, not a floor general. The only thing that carries him is his athleticism. Once that’s’s WRAPS.

                                                                            Westbrook was never an elite point guard. I compare him to Iverson: fun to watch for those who like thrill seeking but for the true basketball connoisseur, he’s nothing to behold.

With the way that he plays (full throttle) he has to be gassed at times and I think that the effort that goes into shooting threes is just not ever going to result in his being a good three point shooter (because he plays so hard he physically can’t consistently make the shot because it’s further away and takes more effort). But if he were to focus on the midrange (that doesn’t take as much physical effort) he could really help okc to get better. Couple that with getting Roberson back next year (their best defender) and hopefully replacing Abrines (their best long range shooter) and okc will be able to at least get out of the first round.

Always going to be extremely low IQ with poor shot selection that cares more about stats. PG was on fire shooting 14 for 20 and Westbrook still takes 11 more shots than him finishing 11 for 31... and doesn't give PG the ball for the last shot when the guy is 14 for 20 and you're 11 for 30. Do you even want to win? It's just common sense. He did the exact same shit on a daily basis with KD. KD would be killing it on like 65% shooting while Westbrook is shooting 37% and finishes with 12 more shots than KD lol. He'll never learn.
