The thing is, you are ALWAYS wrong. Please just stop making these stupid threads. Also please stop acting like you are the most knowledgeable fan here, when it is clear that you are one of the less knowledgeable fan.

Actually everything I posted previously is true I could have a fun time using stats to show his production was definetly overrated.

Its not impossible for players to fall off after their rookie season espescially on bad teams.

is this thread a joke? surely his FG % and 3-pt % is low as well as if turnovers are high

but lemme see..

15.3 PPG -- 4.9 APG -- 5.3 RPG

and he is gonna be a bust?

o wait..he is only a rookie who only played 1 yr in college..

so he is only 2 yrs removed from high school putting up his numbers..he may be undersize but he can play point and can play..hes a bust..their were 60 draft picks last year..idk how many of them put these numbers but a select few..(Rose..MAyo.Beasely..few others)

come on now..r u serious?

Yeah thats definetly a problem, espescially for a PG.
Espescially a PG who shot less than 40% from the Field for 4 months, has no outside shot at all, and averaged 3.3 Turnovers to 5.4 APG.
Horrible numbers that can't be justified, anybody who says Westbrook had a good rookie season is an idiot and only looks at PPG, APG, RPG to determine a players talent.

Westbrook played 2 years at UCLA.

Russell Westbrook cant play PG, I dont think you realize how stupid you sound trying to make that claim.

Did you even watch him play?

This guy is definetly an athlete, but all of his baskets came off of dunks or layups.
Once again hes a tremendous athlete, in OKC's system he sometimes grabs boards brings the ball up the court at full speed and either dunks or draws a foul while 1/2 of the time he turns the ball over.

His numbers are exaggerated due to the lack of talent on the Thunder, nobody else on that team could average more than 10 PPG even with the lack of options they had and this allowed Westbrook to get more opportunities to take shots.

Actually my previous statement was stupid, I should've said 1st player from the 1st Round out of the league because fringe 55-60 picks usually end up out of the league much earlier considering their contracts arent guranteed.

How does Westbrook stick in the NBA?

At best he molds himself into an athletic defensive PG, with the ability to slash to the basket and draw fouls.

When that athleticism is Gone, Westbrook is Gone.
