He has a future in pro wrestling.
After watching Westbrook for more than a passing moment tonight, I am now convinced that he is nothing more than an uber-talented Gary Ervin. While he has all the skills in the world, I still expect to see him run headlong into a brick wall... just because it's there, and to prove to Brooks that he can do it. Just go ahead and slap the retard-helmet on him.
Westbrook gets wild at times, no doubt about it. Many 22-year-old guards do. It definitely costs the Thunder games from time to time, and I hope he grows out of that aMm, the sooner the better.But Gary Ervin? Get the frick out of here. Remind me which year it was that Ervin averaged 22-8-5 while going to the Final Four? I seem to forget.
As frustrating as it is to watch the offense get stagnant when Westbrook dribbles for 15-20 seconds to then shoot a jumper, all three games in this series have been determined by bench production.
The benches wouldn't be AS big of a factor of Westbrook was a better PG. The Thunder would be up 3-0 if Westbrook could get his team involved. That would be a lethal group. My nightmare as a Mavs fan would be Westbrook breaking down Kidd/Barea/Stevenson off of the dribble, our defense collapsing, and him repeatedly finding Harden or Durant for wide open 3's.
Thank goodness we're safe.
maybe i'm just a homer, and i like Ronnie a lot as person, but i swear i remember him killing that 15-20 foot jumper in college, especially off the low curl screen. i can't for the life of me figure out why he doesn't get more shots up. i think someone in Utah screwed up his shot by trying to "fix" it. he needs to try to find some offense and help Rose out when he's in the game.
I think Ronnie knows his role and thats not as a 15-20 foot shooter. If he's wide open he'll take it but on offense he is pass first guy and maybe pick up some trash points on backdoor cuts and hustle. I think he works a lot harder on his defense which is what the Bulls have him for. I would agree that he doesn't look nearly as confident on the offensive end than he did in college but I'll chalk that up to playing with the big boys.
I tend to agree but Ronnie gave up a dunk to pass it to an ice cold Korver for a 3 in the corner last night. I bet he and the Bulls wish he had that one back.
Mike Brown to coach the Lakers.
Mike Brown to coach stand around looking dumbfounded while the Lakers do whatever the hell they want.
Kobe had to sign off on this deal. I can't understand this.
Obviously Kobe is trying to find ways to motivate himself. The only way to make beating the Heat next year in the Finals more enjoyable is to have Lebron's old coach.
