It did. Popped up and went strong to the hole on the very next play though. He's fine.

Westbrook v. Rondo is good stuff right here btw.

Mainstream media's finally starting to catch on that Westbrook is elite. Welcome aboard.

I almost wish he wasn't, because I'd love to see LeBron play like the old LeBron. He's not as fun when he has to play along side of Wade. But not really. I'd never wish injury upon anyone ;)

My fantasy team is burning a hole through the computer at you right now with its glaring eyes.

But honestly when it all gels, I have a feeling it's going to be a hell of a show; much better than watching Lebron in Cleveland.

I was thinking the exact same thing during the first quarter.

I miss watching Bron go off almost every game. He's still the best player in the NBA and he plays like it but I prefer the dominant, scoring LeBron...

He lacks the touch that KG has. He's got some upside, for real, but KG is a bit of a stretch.

I really was tempted to start the "KG is ridiculously overrated" bandwagon, but I'm not dumb. I think this summer his hype just got ridiculous. I won't lie though, I'm happy to see them winning without him. I love KD, and think he's amazing, but he is in no way a top 3 player in this league, and I really don't see much more in him than Melo. I don't think he's MVP caliber stuff at this point. He almost was crowned it by default, just because everyone hates LeBron and Wade now (both better), and people were ready to start Kobe's decline (he's not declining, and is infinitely better than KG). Oh well...

Okay. Time to bash me ;)

I loved when Darko was with Orlando. His potential and talent is obvious, he just lacks the mental attitude to be successful. If he had Kobe's rage, KG's douchiness, or Duncan's determination, he'd be a very good player. He just doesn't have any of that.

LeWaBosh are outscoring the Bobcats on their own. The Bobcats are a tremendous defensive team. I'm beginning to think that the Heat are getting used to playing with each other. Everything looks much easier lately. That's not a good sign for us...

They haven't been under 100 points in a while.

Khalifa21
11-19-2010, 09:55 PM
The more I watch the Thunder play the more I start to think Westbrook is more important to the teams success than KD.

I'm not just saying that because he's having a good game and leading the Thunder against the C's with Durant out, but I just think he's more instrumental to the Thunder.

I'll probably get slaughtered for saying that with all the KD lovers on here, but it's just the way I see it.

ManRam
11-19-2010, 09:56 PM
I've been on the Russy bandwagon since he entered the league. I love him. I dislike Durant. I really want to say Russy is a better all around player, and I almost believe it, but I don't have the balls to say so. I just think he can do everything. He is a great defender, a great scorer and a great facilitator. I think Durant only exhibits one of those three...but he exhibits it so much better. He is the second best pure scorer in the league.

I'm getting slightly buzzed, so I'm getting slightly more controversial. I just love Russy, and don't love the Durant hype.

that was last year. they havent been playing that great at all this year. they have a 4-7 record and there are 8-9 teams just in the east that allow fewer points in them. so 8-9 out of 15 isnt great

I won't lie...I haven't been keeping up with the NBA this year as much as last year. I've just watched games...but haven't delved into the statistical world as much, which bums me.

I don't know the stats, but you're right, they are 17th. Still, last year they were #1 I believe, and despite their poor start, I think they are closer to top 5 than they are closer to middle of the pack.

Durant has been a bit off the first two weeks (still an overall huge asset), and you guys are forgetting just how good he can be.

Westbrook is pretty incredible and turning into a superstar level player this season, but Durant is still their unquestioned leader, and indeed their best player. As the season progresses, this is going to become more and more clear.

Rose/Westbrook/Durant/Gay, etc. were all on Team USA this summer. Who was their go to scorer? Who was their best player? Who did they all agree was the unquestioned leader of the team? 21 year old KD is the only answer to all of those questions, and it's no different in the NBA.

darko lacks more then that. he was drafted off of potential. he just doesnt get it. he wasn't putting up astounding numbers in Europe before he was drafted but they thought he would as he developed his game. well he hasnt developed it and that is why potential is overrated. Eddy Curry was drafted off of potential and he is prime example of why potential is just overrated. some peoples games can translate to the NBA and some just can't.

Eddy Curry was drafted off of potential and he is prime example of why potential is just overrated. some peoples games can translate to the NBA and some just can't.

There's honestly nothing Darko can't do. He can score down low, he can score from outside, he can play defense, he can rebound, he can block shots, he can pass, he can even dribble; he seriously can do everything. He just has never been able to group it all together and get the mental part of the game going. Basketball, like every sport, is hugely mental. Potential is overrated, but he seriously HAS the potential, he just doesn't live up to it. Curry had his chances, and never showed any glimmers of hope. I watched Darko every game for a while, and he showed the signs, he just never could get it together. He was soft. He was mentally weak. He was unstable. Kahn saw something in him, and it's there, and that's why he got a contract. Again, he just doesn't have the mental capacity to link it all together and perform at a level he can.

Yeah. Kobe has been fine. Lately, he has been taking more shots, but not anything near where he was when the Lakers sucked. Can't criticize Kobe for his # of shots at all.

11-19-2010, 10:22 PM
why is Kobe shooting so much this season?

Actually, he's actually shooting less as compared to last season. He hasn't shot more than 20 FG's since the 03-04 season.. This year he's averaging 19.

There's honestly nothing Darko can't do. He can score down low, he can score from outside, he can play defense, he can rebound, he can block shots, he can pass, he can even dribble; he seriously can do everything. He just has never been able to group it all together and get the mental part of the game going. Basketball, like every sport, is hugely mental. Potential is overrated, but he seriously HAS the potential, he just doesn't live up to it. Curry had his chances, and never showed any glimmers of hope. I watched Darko every game for a while, and he showed the signs, he just never could get it together. He was soft. He was mentally weak. He was unstable. Kahn saw something in him, and it's there, and that's why he got a contract. Again, he just doesn't have the mental capacity to link it all together and perform at a level he can.

Agreed, to add to that look at how much more physical he has gotten since he first got in the league.

Per 36 minutes, Kobe's averaging the second highest amount of shots in his career at 21.3 (only lower than his 23.9 per 36 when he averaged 35 PPG).

He's playing a few minutes a game less but he's still shooting the ball at a very high rate when he's on the court.

44% shooting when Gasol is at 55% and getting less shots says otherwise. If I was a Lakers fan i'd rather Gasol was shooting nearly 20 a game with Kobe at about 15/16, but it's the other way round at the moment.

Seriously, Rose fans can write it off if they want, but that win was all Russy. He kept them in it early on, which often means as much as hitting late shots. They didn't need to hit late shots because Russy was so good early on that they could win without it. Just like I think LeBron is the best closer in the league, because he dominate the WHOLE 4th quarter, not just the last 5 seconds.

Russy was great. He's a stud. Won without the other 2 best players...and by "won", I mean beat the best team in the East.

Durant is assisted on 3 of his scores a game. He scores primarily out of iso situations. Russy doesn't benefit assist-wise from Durant. He benefits otherwise, but it isn't assists.

Most PG get their assists from three point shooters, and more importantly, post players. Russy doesn't have much of either around him.

What the Magic need is a guy who makes everyone better. That's why I'd take Russy. Durant is the best scorer in the league, but there's more to the game than scoring.

Durant already got a huge extension
and jeff green is going to want to get paid too

how are the thunder going to sign all 3 to big contracts and still stay competitive?
or is it a non issue because their owner has deep pockets and is willing to spend?

just wondering because they're a small market

they arn't unless they wanna go majorly into the luxury tax and like you said, they are a small market team so i dont see that happening

WTF are you talking about? go back and please point out where i put down westbrooks game tonight? I dont even know how to respond to this....... does anyone else know what he is talking about?

What's this? Overreacting to one game in which he still dominated and led his team to an championship contending, undefeated home team; I think so.


LOL. Hey baller, Westbrook sure is better than Rose huh. I mean he has absolutely taken over the game in the 4th quarter with an amazing 0-7 performance. :laugh2:


Kevin Durant's presence makes Westbrook who he is. When he's not there and Westbrook has to become the #1 option? Good luck.


one game, I would love for them to switch places and I bet oklahoma would really be balling right now

Bottom line, and I won't say anything after this because I'm ****ing sick of it, you can't compare 2 guys when one of them is clearly not their team's best player and clearly not the primary focus of the defense while the other guy clearly is.

Yet you were the one who started this whole thing saying Westbrook can't be better than Rose for having a bad fourth quarter?

The Thunder attendance is basically 100%. They're small market, but their fans care. They won't feel strapped financially. Clay Bennett can afford it.

So Wade isn't as good as Rudy Gay because Rudy Gay is the Grizzlies' best player and Wade is the second best player on his team?

Wrong.

all NBA owners can afford is pretty much, I mean think about it, if you own a team, your pretty much a billionaire or close to it, sadly to some owners, its more about making money then anything. so if going over the luxury doesnt promise making money they wont.

Well let me try to put it this way, his skill set is perfect for any team, but his position isn't.

Unfortunately, any team with a vacancy at SF. He is great at nothing, but good/very good at everything. Just wish he fit into our rotation better, but now with Serge emerging, it's not looking too good for Green.

same position

(boston drafted him, but im pretty sure the thunder told them to draft him because they had the ray allen trade in the works)

Thats what happened against the Spurs, but that was the 2nd game of a back to back and they really looked like a dead team in that 3rd quarter. Hopefully tonight is different.

So at the moment who cares. Until we see these teams square off in the playoffs, who really cares. Because neither player has a ring.
