Re: Russell Westbrook

I'm a little scared right now, but I agree with you HB. Kid doesn't have point guard skills, and he's not exactly Dwayne Wade or Monta Ellis right now. Chad Ford drove the Westbrook = Lottery Pick bus by the way.

Roy can play PG in the half-court set with Westbrook playing off the ball. Most of all, the primary thing the Blazers need out of a PG is great defense, which is what Russell provides.

Here are my questions. Can he initiate the fast break offense(Not finish, but initiate) and does he seem to possess the ability to refine a decent NBA J within 2 or so years.
If we have a chance at 13 we should take Collison over Westbrook. Heck, there's most likely going to be a lot of better options then Westbrook. That guy is vastly overrated.

I agree. Westbrook is nowhere near as explosive as Ellis. He is decent but he isn't a lottery talent IMO. He is very similar to Javaris Crittenton. Heck, he really isn't a better prospect than J Critt coming out of college. More hyped but not better.

Re: Russell Westbrook

I was and am still intrigued by this kid. He probably doesn't have great handling skills or great playmaking ability (and his mid-range game isn't quite Monta Ellis). However, I think he can become a great defender in the league. I read somewhere maybe a rich man's Marcus Banks is a better comparison. I also agree with the taller Lindsey Hunter assessment.

Bunch of clips from the Oregon game this year in this video:



then we got the famous Cal dunk from this year:





another dunk from the Wazzu game where Weaver tried to block it but Westbrook moved the ball to the side

How so? If someones 45 years old, they should have a life and not be posting on this site. Thats what I meant by that statement.

Re: Russell Westbrook

I think he has the potential to be a very good defener, but I can't see him doing much damage on offense.

No, Thomas and his guys weren't the only ones in the wrong Saturday. The Nuggets have their own issues. But when it was over, at least they weren't crying, at least they weren't punking.

It's all gone in New York now the pride, the respect, the dignity. This isn't just a bad team; this is a bad act. A once proud franchise and fan base brought to its knees as its pathetic coach makes excuses and whines for mercy.

Re: Russell Westbrook

And to me, Chalmers seems like a backup PG for his career, while Westbrook has a lot of potential to be a very good starter.

What skill or attribute makes you think that Westbrook can become a star(ter) ?
