Yup, and a 2pt loss on a buzzerbeater to a contending spurs team looking for a little playoff payback proves that! A game where martin had 15 pts and 5asts and got to the line.Ur so lucky u watch basketball and i dont.
Westbrook is incredibly overrated. He's a great athlete, but he's a gunner PG who keeps shooting even when he's terribly off. It was really frustrating watching them play last year during close games, because he always wanted to be the man. If you have KD on your team, you get him the ball as soon as you can.
Hydro - I agree with the second part of your post. In a fantasy world where we could get him the combo of Westbrook and Bynum would be a terror for the East.
I think my problem with Westbrook is he is on a team where they need him to be the sidekick, the Pippin, the Robin, whatever you want to call it. But sometimes he goes on these games where he plays like a kid with a temper tantrum and refuses to be the second fiddle. Personally I think it hurts his image with some fans. I know it does with me. Westbrook lucks out that he plays with a 'reluctant' superstar in Durant, who won't get up in his face or make remarks about him to the press.
I mean could you imagine if Westbrook had Kobe, LeBron, or even going back, MJ, Magic, or Bird as a teammate? Those guys would be in his face after the first quarter of a game like last night.
