Westbrook or Durant?
After the trouble the Oklahoma City Thunder had in the playoffs there has been much speculation if they should move Russell Westbrook and get Kevin Durant a more of a pass first point guard. You might be sayin trouble in the playoffs? They definetly had the talent to win it all. They just didn't. A lot of teams could say that. Something wasn't right. I think there might be some chemistry issues. But if you think I am one of peeps sayin Durant needs a pass first point guard, I am not. If you have to get rid of one of them I would get rid of Durant. Russell Westbrook is a special player. Look at all the respect Mr. D Rose gets in Chicago. And can you really say Rose is that much better than Westbrook? I say no. They are the two best penetrators in the league. It does not seem like we should be able to make this comparison. I mean Russel has stud on his team and Rose (although Deng is nice) does not. He is the stud. I think if you get rid of Durant and give Russell the reigns and the confidence you could be looking at a very dominant player. I know most would disagree and I kinda do to a point. But on the other hand I don't. It's just something I have thought about and this is the blog to do it.
