lol Nobody else is taking on Westbrook's contract. He is clearly on the slide right now while being owed the super max for four seasons. Thunder were only able to get rid of him because they took an equally huge contract nobody wants.
The Rockets basically need to run a lot more than they have the last couple of seasons if they are going to do anything. Westbrook is a clearly inferior half court player to Chris Paul as he can't shoot and isn't some great half court driver. He needs to be in the open court at this point of his career to be a plus, period. James Harden is really the one who should be playing off the ball, but the guy has grown into the biggest ballhog in league history who just wants to iso 50 times a game.
