Default Dominique Wilkins vs. Russell Westbrook

Who do you think was the better scorer, and better player in their primes?





Old School vs. New School.

Nique had legendary showdowns against Bird & MJ

he also had a decent inside game & good midrange

Nique clearly has the scoring edge. His ISEA™ at his peak (1986) was 0.706. Westbrook last year had a 0.642 ISEA™, which is easily better than this year (0.591).

Nique had a thick vertical game.

Dominique is the better regular season player



They're both inefficient in the playoffs

I like the contrasting playstyles.

One is explosive, one is finesse.

Westbrook. Nique was like a better Melo. He just isn't as diverse as Westbrook.
