Kawhi with the bounce back game. Gasol is neutralizing Vuc.

Man Westbrook is a generational talent but that [expletive] doesn’t translate to wins at all. Lillard and CJ are cooking them. Another first round exit.

I wouldn't say Westbrook is a generational talent. 

He's certainly a generational athlete (similar to Giannis, I feel he's a generational athlete not talent) in terms of his combination of size, speed, strength, and explosiveness.

I feel generational talents are players such as Lebron, KD, and maybe AD.

 

I think a healthy and prime Derrick Rose would have been on a greater trajectory and player than Westbrook.  Russell is a dog, and you can't question his heart and energy. 

However he fails to understand winning basketball and only knows 1 speed which is a full head of steam.  

 

His biggest flaw however is his failure to adapt to the current NBA which is heavily reliant upon guards and essentially all players having a consistent perimeter game.  Russ doesn't have that and may never acquire it.

FiveThirtyEight just had an article on Westbrook highlighting this. Good read

I'll have to take a look at it.

It's crazy how much hate Westbrook has garnered as of late.  I remember when KD initially left, the entire league sympathized with Russ. 

With his MVP and triple-double season he had reached the peak of his career.  Ironically just a year or so later, he's now a punching bag and it's as if fans and the media included are all out to get him.

 

Too bad for him and PG.  I doubt they'll every win unless KD follows Lebron's storyline and returns home lol.

I don’t think he’s a punching bag I think the mystique of Westbrook has worn off. He was wooing people with the triple doubles. Now it’s blatantly obvious to Ray Charles ghost that Westbrook needs to change his game and he won’t do it. People are recognizing Durant had a point and OKC front office should’ve gotten rid of Westbrook and not Durant.

Bucks do not scare me, i think a team like the warriors will eat them alive. I think Bucks would go to 7 with Houston, but warriors win in 5 i they meet.
