27.2 points 7.9 assists 7.0 rebounds 1.6 steals. 47 FG% Per @bball_ref, the only players in NBA history to match or exceed those per-game averages throughout a full season are: Michael Jordan in 1988-89, LeBron James in 2009-10
Those are some impressive regular season statistics right there
Hes a beast. Westbrook is a player who will be much more respected with these sorts of posts when hes gone, and it sucks. Glad to see a few are still around who show him any sort of recognition.
yeah because then the context will be forgotten
Sorry to be the analytics nerd here but this is kind of a case study of ts% percentage and individual area % is better than blanket fg%. He led the league in drives according to nba.com, and he shoots well on them (60%, similar volume and efficiency to lu
I hate Russell Westbrook. I think he exemplifies everything that is wrong with basketball, and sports honestly. He is insanely selfish, attention-seeking, possibly the most immature player in the league, throws tantrums on the court, is generally rude a
"this side of Antoine Walker" is absolutely killing me
Is this a copy pasta lol
this, but unironically.
Jordan did it averaging 32/8/8/3 on 53% FG lol
Russ right now is at the same point where Iverson was in Denver. Clearly past his prime but still puts up big regular season stats which allows his fans to keep making excuses for his annual shortcomings in the playoffs
Catching COVID and coming off a quad injury is making up excuses?
Weird how covid made him throw up the same shitty low percentage jumpers he throws up every year. If he was actually struggling with injury or respiratory problems you might expect it to limit his driving and athleticism. But those were fine. The problem
What happened last year when he got embarrassed by a rival? Or the year before when he lost to a team led by rookie? Y’all do this every year fam I ain’t buying it anymore
That’s a bit of a disservice to iverson. He had the most efficient season of his career in Denver and was their best player in the playoffs.
Team got way better when he was swapped for Billups though
I love Westbrook. He has some crazy accomplishments in this league like the back to back seasons with a triple double, and the 20/20/20 game which is only him and the nba record man himself, Wilt Chamberlain. But Westbrook isnt ever going to get any lov
this people really just looking at stats lmfao brickbrook is so bad in the bubble its not even funny
But guys the advanced stats say hes worse than Kwame Brown!!
He was injured in the playoffs and on minute restriction, so he was bad but everyone on here forgot that he was playing like a top 5 player for the most of the year.
Must have been hurt the last few years in the playoffs too
Seriously he was the best player on the Rockets for a good stretch of the season from around January and especially around the RoCo Trade. Its crazy how people are taking them from "Dark Horse" to franchise with no future so fast
But but but the advanced stats people say Lillard Curry and CP3 are better
Lillard and Curry are better rn lol
Lillard and Curry are better.
Russ is as good as a scorer as both while a better playmaker and miles better on defense, plus he doesn’t fold in the playoffs
Id take Lillard, Curry, and CP3 over Westbrook pretty confidently
this just goes to show you that stats arent the end all be all of player analysis those three guys are much much better than weestbrook lol
