Westbrook is the worst player in the nba! He chucks shots in the day, and misses layups at night! That's why he should sign the veteran minimum with the Heat!

What are your thoughts and analysis?

Biendrins was actually a serviceable center a couple of years ago, still there are centers let alone players worse than him.

I think he's underrated

As a sixers fan I love jrue but would love to have Westbrook any day.

He's the best defensive pg IMO

On offense, he has developed a deadly pull up jumper. He explodes and slashes to the rim at will. His only weakness is his 3 point shot isn't consistent enough

All Jokes aside I was just having fun with it but that is the perfect range... To many knicks fans put him in the top 5...He is great and if he would play defense he would be in that 5 range.

I'm not in love with Westbrook. He is one of the best PGs in the league right now, and I've noticed his FG% has improved each season, which is good (45% isn't bad for a PG/SG, though it's not great either). What I don't like is that his assist averaged dropped by 3 this season. That is not a good trend to see in a PG in his fourth season. I thought he was better in 2010/2011 than he was in 2011/2012.

What are your thoughts and analysis?

my thoughts and analysis are that you're an idiot and you should quit making a thread just to bash another player. If he's the worst player in the NBA then why would you want him on your team even for the Min. He's easily a top 5 PG in the NBA and a top 10-15 player, a defensive machine and an athletic freak yes he makes some stupid decisions which comes with having a 2 as your pg but he's grown and matured since he's been in the league and is only going to continue. At this point in their careers i'm taking Westbrook over Wade... In conclusion You're an idiot and should have you posting privileges revoked.

Last season he did. But all of those guys had down years as far as shooting %.


The thing that concerns me, as someone mentioned earlier, is that his APG dropped by almost 3 full assists last season.

Nice play; many people took the bait.
Russell Westbrook is less efficient in his decision-making and less of a leader than Derrick Rose, who also passes the ball more. I believe Westbrook has the talent to fix these flaws, so I'll put him right behind Rose as the fourth best point guard in the NBA.

CP3 sure, Rondo heck no. Rondo isn't a great defender at all he just shoots the passing lanes and racks up steals. Man to man he takes too many risks and gets blown by a lot.

Russ is slowly becoming one of my favorite players just because people underestimate his talent so much. He's easily one of the best PG's in the league and one of the best players. People don't understand how much he has to do on that Thunder team (along with Durant) because they only have 3 people that can score over 15 points during any given game. Russ is becoming so hated, that he's criminally underrated at this point.

And being a Sixer fan I'd trade Jrue, Turner and Thad for Russ in a milli second.

This is y i agree hes overrated.. rondo is the best pg in the game andd sooo much smarter then westbrook. Paul deron are also better now.. nash parker not anymore but were better than hell ever be.

I hate hearing he has a deadly jumper when he literally shot his team out off wcf not too long ago. its inconsistent and can hurt the team with his volume "lethal" pull up jumper he's in love with

whoever said Westbrook is a poor mans Stevie Franchise at his peak...I applaud you that was a perfect comparison.
whoever said "offensively Rondo concerns me" doesn't know the game. He has the best court vision since Kidd and can finish at the basket just as good as Russell and Rose..just not as much with dunks more so smooth layins. Idc if he doesnt have a jumper, neither did Kidd, and at least he doenst pretend he does as much as Westbrook does.

1. Rondo
2. Deron
3. Cp3 when hes not flopping annoying
4. Rose
5/6/7. Nash/Westbrook/Parker
8/9/10/11. Irving/Wall/Curry/Lawson

and John Lucas the III is probably #1 when he's playing the Heat
