Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - SPREAD ON A LITTLE MAYO
I didn't even know Durant had those numbers. That's gross. I guess I haven't paid that much attention to the Thunder so far this year. Admittedly, it is probably because of my hate for Westbrook.
I'm always curious what people think of Westbrook. There seems to either be the crowd that thinks he's a great player & a tremendous scoring threat, then the crowd that thinks he makes really poor decisions, has way too many turnovers & needs to take a backseat to Durant instead of thinking that he is on equal footing.
As far as MVP talk goes, let's not get ahead of ourselves as we're not even at Christmas yet.
He is a great player and a tremendous scoring threat. The other side seem to be filled by morons who think that passing the ball to Durant on every possession would actually work. Westbrook's assists have shot up this season while his turnovers have not(he does average a really high number of them though, but so does Durant, it comes from handling the ball a lot). He does make a lot of dumb decisions as well though and really needs to improve on his decision making in some aspects, but that doesn't mean he's a bad player.
