Re: Russell Westbrook

I think the best comparison is that he's a more athletic Antonio Daniels.

Re: Russell Westbrook

Actually thats a terrible comparison. One he is not more athletic, two his passing skills are nowhere near as good as Daniels'

Re: Russell Westbrook

He's not the ball handler that Daniels is either. Look, I can defend drafting Westbrook at the end of the first round for, as HKF keeps saying, a Lindsey Hunter type of an impact. I just don't see him as a point guard, or a lottery pick.

Re: Russell Westbrook

Guess I was wrong, he looked a lot better than Collison recently. His ability to get to the rim and finish is impressive, he is going to be a good defender, however that still isn't enough to be a lottery pick. I think he could become a good sixth man for a team.

Re: Russell Westbrook

he's athletic and a good defender but he doesn't have pg skills and isn't a good shooter.

Do you just make stupid statements to be controversial? Westbrook is by far more athletic than Daniels.

at this ridiculous statement. Did you even watch Daniels play in college?

Does this look like a player that Westbrook is BY FAR better than athletically?

Re: Russell Westbrook

Reminds me of a taller, skinnier, possibly smarter Marcus Banks - elite athleticism, excellent penetration/finishing, tenacious defense, subpar distribution, average shooting.

Why wouldn't I post anymore in this thread? You guys are wrong if you don't think Westbrook is more athletic. In these 1st 2 videos Daniels is barely even off the ground, only the last video is pretty good. And yet I can link you 5 other ones that are more impressive dunks that Westbrook did just this year alone (i'll find them soon, too busy at work right now to search). Westbrook is still a kid too (i think he just turned 20), so you'll see even more of them in the future.
