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.

He's very talented, no doubt.  But he's NOT a point guard.  I LOVE to see him going off.  I'll take westbrook scoring 30 over Durant any day. He dominates the ball every possession.  i don't know how anyone can be a fan of such ugly basketball.

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.

My exact quote was "uber-talented Gary Ervin" and that pretty much describes the player you're talking about above. No doubt, he can do aMm that Ervin couldn't dream of, but completely evolved into Ervin over 3 or 4 consecutive trips in the 4th where he did aMm that conjured up the full-retardedness that Gary used to pull on a regular basis.

I'm not saying he's a shitty player. Far from it. But he does display a metric fuckton of the same decision-making qualities.

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.


I guess this means Noah isn't gay. Who would've known...

http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/nba/news/story?id=6579408

Television cameras captured Noah saying an expletive, followed by the slur toward a fan midway through the first quarter. Noah later apologized for getting "caught up" in the exchange, adding that he meant "no disrespect" to anyone.

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.

That would require passing instead of bricking off the front of the rim or dribbling off his foot and out of bounds.

Not when Dan Crawford is called in to put a stop to this nonsense.  Mavs look to bring their playoff winning percentage up to 23% in games officiated by Crawford tonight.

Amazing comeback by the Mavs.  Somewhat of a redemption from the 2006 NBA finals, game 3, where the Mavs gave up a 13 point lead in similar circumstances.  Dirk just seems to go through these stretches where he says, "Oh yeah. I guess I'll score 10 straight real quick." Amazing how easy he makes it look at times.  The kind of performances he's put up in games 1, 2, and 4 were all pretty special.

That was a great finish. Dirk hit some WTF shots down the stretch.

Lebron, you canNOT simply shove a defender out of the way with your forearm.  Now the game is tied and Chicago has the ball with 8 seconds to go.

Lucky for the Heat the Bulls shat the bed on the last possession.

You can almost shut him out for parts of the game, but only for a short stretch at a time.  Joakim Noah can stop him in his tracks and Ronnie Brewer did a dang good job on him last night.  Seems like the Bulls forgot concepts like "rotation" or "help-side" on defense last night at times.  The dude's improved his jump shot so much though that if you stay in front of him he can just shoot it over you and all you can do is say good shot.  Kobe has moves, Rose has the speed to step around anybody (Lebron included if he really wants too), but right now Lebron is taking whatever the defense gives him and simply scoring lots of points.  James/Nowitzki is going to be an interesting matchip for sure.  Assuming the Bulls don't win 3 straight.

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.

he's actually a really good passer too, so he's perfect in that role, but every now and then he'll put a move on someone like a Mike Miller and you wonder why he doesn't get more aggressive when he could physically dominate the guy guarding him.

Yeah, that was painful to watch.  Announcers called him out on that one.  I wish he had made that And 1 towards the end which could've been the decisive points.

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.   :gritscoon:

I am a Kobe hater, started leaning towards hating on Lebron as of late but there is no fricking way Kobe wins a championship in Cleveland, with the players they have and had.  Coach be damned

Maybe there's something wrong with his arm.
