      Games played for Dame: 82, 82, 82, 75, 75, 73, 80 = averages 78 games a season
      Games played for Westbrook: 82, 82, 82, 66, 82, 46, 67, 80, 81, 80, 73 = averages 74.6 games a season

      pretty close

        Russ has the talent to be the best on a top tier championship team but the leadership and IQ ain’t there for it. Dame is the opposite

          Lillard: nothing*

                  im going to make a simple statement.

                  do you think lillard and durant would do better than westbrook and durant did?
                  my answer is yes.

                    Stop it playing around. I’m taking Lillard. It’s easier to build around him too

                      “I’ll take him because of the regular season”........ they’re a 6th seed. How is that impressive

                        Josh its the western conference man. Its more difficult to make the playoffs there

                        Westbrick acts like a child. Hes a talent sure but lets be real hes over obsessive.

                            He definitely was a top 5 point guard last year but people put him out when he got swept and shutdown last year so he had to redeem his self why he is a top 5 pg

                              Westbrook still has a lot of growing up to do mentally. He is still a child.

                                SAS is even more overrated than Westbrook.

                                  I don’t believe Westbrook should be fine just because he don’t answer the questions how you guys want him to

                                                  "You can make an argument for this season, Damian Lillard should make first team all nba over Steph Curry" Yeah, You can make an argument, but it would be wrong. Dame is 100% 2nd team uncontested, He was fantastic. But Steph's Efficiency numbers are unreal. Stephs numbers are Harden and Greek freak levels of great. He gets no love cuz his team is stacked. I hope next season they lose some stars and get a deep bench and let him and Klay run wild.

                                                      I’m taking Dame no question. Dame is one of the clutches players in the league. Has the craziest range besides Steph. Great finisher he’s a good passer and just an incredible teammate. He’s got that killer like Kobe and MJ. Russ is an inefficient shot chucker. Can’t even shoot FTs now. Super low IQ. Just always seems to make the worst decisions. Shoots his team out games. Just give me Dame absolutely

                                                      • Ka Mo

                                                        Russ is so fun to watch in highlights but if you see the whole game you’ll notice a lot of bad shoot selections, passes leading to turn overs. He’s constantly pushing the ball where it looks like a situation where you need to control the tempo of the game. It is the way he played which makes him so entertaining to watch but not sure if he’s the skipper who leads the team to championships.
                                                        Anyone who saw the whole game from start to finish should understand what I’m talking about. It must be so relieving for Portland funs to see Russ pulling up all those tough threes and turning the ball over by attacking to the rim with 4-5 man in the paint in clutch situations.

                                                          “Only because I take the 82 games into consideration” when Dame has had a better record than Westbrook for the past 2 years

                                                              People have forgotten what a spectacle Russ's triple doubles are

Where are his triple doubles in the post season? Maybe you only care about the regular season but I want to win so I’m taking Dame

The same thing applys to the quote by MJ “ you miss 100% of the shots you dont take”. Overall what i see is that westbrook doesnt put himself down, he believes that he can make the shot to help his team

Westbitch however, thinks he's way better than he really is, woohoo he can dunk, whoopty shit he can grab a few rebounds, he's selfish, volume shooter who can't make shit, and plays with pure ego, plus he looks like he shops at the retarded bargain bin female version of the baby gap.

Dame seems more efficient and also concentrates on doing what is needed to win. Westbrook's shooting has gotten crazy, I think he's too focused on stats, and he always does things on the court that make me go "why?!"
