    he won't win any rings... just let him play out (shoot-out) his career and disappear after. his own guys get out of his way so he can stat pad... his whole team are a bunch of btches

    Durant left and won 2 rings, oladipo left and became an all-star stud, harden left and became an MVP. Westbrook is a joke, stat stuffing cancer stick

    Hmmmm I'd say the amazing stat is him averaging a triple double 2yrs in a row.

    I know we can say he hasn't won anything & is a stat machine, but if it's so easy, why isn't everyone else doing it?

    Inflated stat. Handled the ball every play. Everyone knew he was going to Triple Double it that year.

    I understand & I have mixed opinions on it to be honest.

    But again, do we think that other players don't 'try' and don't wish or want to put up those kind of numbers?

    I can see if he concentrated on only scoring points & taking a lot of shots, or ignored scoring & solely focused on rebounds, or only specialized in getting other players the ball & earning assists.

    But the guy does ALL 3.

    Pretty impressive to me, but only my opinion

    Because other teams are worried about winning instead of letting a dude pad his stats.

    It's great when his man is wide open because he went to park himself in paint to grab the rebound if the guy misses.

    You have a bad habit of putting words in ppls mouths & critiquing other posters's opinions.

    I think you guys are overlooking how difficult his accomplishments are and I'm not the only one in this thread who feels that way.

    We all have our opinion.

    Curry would Probly win a few more MVP if Durant didnít join GSW- great players know There measure by championships? Not stats - case closed !!! Thereís a reason Durant couldnít win in OKC with Westbrook and harden -

    Youíre right.

    You also have to keep in mind that a lot of the people that go online and bash world class athletes are probably ove weight and out of shape guys that have never played sports or been an alpha at anything. So naturally, people are going to hate.

    Does Westbrook make bad decisions sometimes? Of course he does.

    Will he ever win a championship? Probably not.

    Does that mean he sucks? Hell no.

    In the NBA most players donít win championships. Itís not like Harden or Anthony Davis are wining anything anytime soon.

    Iverson was a worse shooter than Westbrook.

    Malone, Stockton, Miller, Barkley, etc. never won rings.

    Do all of those players suck?

    He gets trip dubs bc he's a super athlete and he's an equally stupid athlete if not more so.

    Top 10? No way, he's closer to Devin Booker than he is a great

    Durant
    Kawhi
    LeBron
    Curry
    Harden
    Davis
    Giannis
    Paul
    Embiid
    Jokic

    All better players than Westbrook. I'd consider wall, Lillard, kyrie, Draymond and a healthy cousins better than Westbrook as well

    He may not even be the best player on his own team right now

    Lebron could do this every game he played if he decided to put his own stats in front of winning.

    russ takes bad shots most of the time its a wonder his shooting percentage isnt lower, many times he's leaning or shooting those quick wristed shots he takes with barely a follow through. on those short pull ups he does on fast breaks instead of pulling up for an open shot he'll drive all the way to the guy's face and pull up for a contested shot, weird. 3 pt shots he takes are hardly ever wide open but he's posted a triple double for the last 2 seasons and its considered nothing so shooting 60% from 3 wouldnt matter either to some folks.

    Two years ago Westbrook had the highest player efficiency rating in the entire NBA....

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/thunder...layered/amp/2/

    Itís hilarious to read comments saying he sucks, he makes horrible decisions ALL THE TIME, and isnít a top 10 player. These are all just opinions. Actual data says he is one of the most efficient players in the NBA and two years ago he was by far the most efficient player.....but what do I know, Iím a homer.

    Westbrook is still doing the same shit since his rookie year - OKC is not building for the future with this guy still around - must of been hundreds of games now- where he would just take the dumbest low % shots in critical moments - Itís like teams knows it? And are encouraging him 2 take the shots? Another example- Thursday night game vs Boston ? What kinda shot is that down 3 with over 20 plus seconds on the clock ?

    OKC wonít win a championship for the foreseeable future with or without Westbrook.

    Unless youíre a Lebron fan or a Warriors bandwagoner, your team hasnít won a thing in the last 5 years either.

    Anthony Davis
    James Harden
    Chris Paul
    Jokic
    Giannis
    Etc

    All these players everyone says are better....itís not like theyíre winning anything either.

    Yeah, that was horrible. But more so than Westbrook, I blame Presti for bringing in a college coach to try to handle Durant and Russ.

    Donovan has no control and is afraid to say anything to him about shot selection.

    I agree about Donovan. He sucks.

    The whole organization is so afraid of Westbrook. No one will tell him he's killing the team.

    Just stop shooting threes, bro. Understand your weakness.

    So stats are meaningless? Wasnít this entire thread about a stat? So are they meaningless or are they not meaningless?

    I think thatís what my point was. Itís known he isnít a great three point shooter. So what?

    The Thunder screwed up by coddling their stars from day 1. Scott Brooks did it and it actually
    got worse with Donovan.

    At this point Westbrook is 30. He isnít changing.

    Presti hit the lottery drafting three straight MVPS and f*cked it up royally. You donít bring in a college coach to lead Durant and Westbrook.

    Did Presti really think they were going listen to a college coach? Then he paid over the hill Melo 28 million but wouldnít pay $5 million more to keep Harden.

    Presti panicked when Durant left and started throwing money at everyone when he should of spent the money earlier to keep the Thunderís three stars together.
