Russ has tarnished the tripple double9:56 am Mon Apr 27 EDTDeleted

People are responding predictably here, but the point isn’t far off: If a guy averaging a triple double looks this bad in the games that matter, then why are we bothering glorifying the triple double? 0

Russell Westbrook is the worst player in NBA history10:41 am Mon Apr 27 EDTDeleted

No one has ever lost to a 16 seed and not won the title the next year 1

NBA teams fear Steph Curry pulling up from 30 feet they fear Giannis athletism to get to the rim with ease they fear Harden in isolation creating space wherever he wants No one fears a Westbrook triple-double 2:46 pm Mon Apr 27 EDTDeleted

Unpopular Opinion Although he bears no fault assuming hes innocent theres no upside to retaining Luke and Sacramento should bite the bullet and terminate his contract immediately5:53 pm Tue Apr 28 EDTDeleted

The downside is the best case scenario is the next year is clouded with him having to be involved in this case and possibly incriminating details coming out. He isn’t a good enough coach to make that worth it. 1

Unpopular Opinion Although he bears no fault assuming hes innocent theres no upside to retaining Luke and Sacramento should bite the bullet and terminate his contract immediately5:53 pm Tue Apr 28 EDTDeleted

This is extremely well reasoned and makes a great point. He is not a hall of fame level coach, and getting rid of him now means you hire a reasonable other candidate. 1

The Thunders main issue isnt Westbrook its that Billy Donovan is a feckless milquetoast coach not suited for NBA basketball 1:32 am Wed Apr 29 EDTDeleted

Would you rather have Donovan Mitchell or Devin Booker7:53 pm Wed Apr 29 EDTDeleted

I don’t necessarily agree with the OP, but this clearly isn’t what he meant at all. He’s pointing out that Mitchell is in a better development system than Booker. That’s all. 1

Would you rather have Donovan Mitchell or Devin Booker7:53 pm Wed Apr 29 EDTDeleted

Booker loses 60 games every year and Mitchell is the best offensive player on a playoff team. We haven’t seen booker face a playoff defense or play in a meaningful game for that matter. To say he is better than Mitchell at all that stuff is just fool 1

What makes Harden so much better than Westbrook this postseason if they have similar shooting splits on similar volume 1:49 pm Tue May 5 EDTDeleted

Harden is better than Westbrook, but he is getting left off the hook to unbelievable levels here. He had an all time great season and has been totally defendable this entire playoffs. 2

Kawhi has done an awesome job on Giannis. But the main reason he guarded Simmons in that series was of because how much he could be ignored. I really wouldn’t put too much stock into that performance as some proof of success. 1
