    No kidding. I'm sitting here working on taxes and seeing the fantasy Game Channel light up red with his name. I don't even have to watch the game to know what you said is true. He's at 31% FGP. 8 turnovers.



    Yup. I have a tight week vs Mikey and he has Meeks. 38 after 3 quarters. They say scoring is a real beast these days in the NBA :embar:

    omg westbrook.... a seriously awesome 5 plays in a row and then 2 really terrible ones to clinch the game for the lakers

    durant couldn't get free tho.


    the worst thing about the thunders is that their offense is kinda like the warriors. good movement to start with (like a PnR) and if that doesn't work it's time for isoball. no screens or back cuts or anything

    Yup. Game Channel just lit up with 2 late missed 3s. Edit, and then he finally makes one.

    Serious question: Should the Thunder trade Westbrook next year? They had as good if not better record without him and they could get some real talent from somebody thirsty for a "star"

    He was playing in LA, where he's from, so I think that influenced him to be a hero.

    I would not move him. Having him in fantasy, I see him every day. He puts up spectacular stats. He had a triple double the other night in 20 mins. He's also a physical freak of nature and as quick as any player in the history of the NBA.

    This is a tough one. If he's allowed to be a ball-dominant score-first PG, he's probably a top 5 player in terms of production (I'm not terribly sure about this, but let's say top 10 for sure). If you can flip him for CP3, then yes, absolutely, but that's probably unrealistic. To move him you need to get a bonafide star, not a bunch of decent to good players.

    I also expect that OKC management is going to be very cautious in making big trades given all the (well deserved) criticism they've received over the Harden fuckup...they'll only move him for a no brainer acquisition.

    they're not going to move him. they've said it several times and the organization is pretty committed to the development of their young players. they'd have to get some unbelievable trade offer to consider and even then probably wouldn't move him

    They'll almost never get fair value in return. Even CP3 is not fair value (3 yrs older/injury history), I likely wouldn't make that deal, but many would.

    I suggested Westbrook for Rondo at one point but not any more. Westbrook for Harden, or Aldridge, etc. That's the kind of guy it would take to make the deal.

    westbrook is only 24 (25?) and his efficiency gets better every year. coaching staff just needs to work with him to make sure he doesn't take those long contested 2s and set up backup plans for when their sets fail. they need to make adjustments and its pretty clear scott brooks hates doing that. he hates changing things even when certain things (like lineups e.g. with perkins) aren't working

    westbrook for harden will never happen and they don't really need aldridge since they have durant. i don't really know who'd be a good trade for him

    Good that you mention Scott Brooks. He's even more to blame for the Thunder not getting the most efficiency out of their talent than anyone else
