      @Steven Hutchens Russell Westbrook is possibly the hardest player that we've ever seen so yes there will be big name players that want to join him for that fact alone.

  • MoMoneyLessProblems

    There's just something wrong with Westbrook. He's probably the most athletic and explosive point guard in the history of the NBA. Physically speaking he's more dominant than any other player at his position in the league. And yet he just can't win. He clearly works hard and keeps his body in prime condition. And he gives 100% on the floor. But he'll never win just because of his nature. He takes bad shots. He's inefficient. He doesn't think. Has a terrible basketball IQ. He's a stat-padder. And he seems to care more about his individual accomplishments than he does about his team's overall success. The guy has all the natural talent in the world. Has the passion. Just doesn't have the mind for winning.

    He is a knuckle head. His face is fixed with that mean black boy look. Every hood has one.

  • HandH2

    Cowherd: playoff basketball is about coaching. Also cowherd: Proceeds to blame Westbrook and only Westbrook for OKC losing.

    He is telling the truth. Russ chased away so many great players and now they are stuck with him for another 4 years.

  • Danny Kim

    Westbrook should do some meditation 🧘‍♂️ he is a great player but when a player gets into his head he loses calmness to move his teammates around. Curry is scary cuz his calmness when opposing side pleasure him (except when he threw the mouth piece lmfao) Westbrook need to lower his ego a bit, only player can play with ego is only Michael Jordan.

    you make sense but people think you're a hater because you're repeating your points too much talking in circles, which is somethng you do when you're emotional. just saying.... a little more efficiency maybe rehearse first Colin

    Westbrook was enabled for the wrong reasons. Gotta love we in this together but refuses to let his teammates answer questions at a presser. That was laughable at Russ trying so damn hard to control the narrative.....can you say control freak! On and off the court literally!

    You will do or say anything for ratings having never played the game. It is hilarious to hear and see such comments about the character of a man like Westbrook. Who made you God so much so you can question this man's make up. You never make these silly comments about other men to this degree, and you wonder why he has a problem with the media!!! Really!!!! You are a freaking idiot!!!

    Remember when marshawn Lynch would say “I’m just here so I won’t get fined” yeah everyone thought that was funny but when Westbrook says “next question “ it’s bad for the league.

    I agree with the adaptability part but I don’t get why people say he pads stats that’s ridiculous in my opinion.

    I second everything just said here. I appreciate the honest breakdown of Westbrook's character.

    It took at least 5 hall of famers to bounce wilt chamberlain out of the playoffs and he was a stat padder. What's your accuse westbrick. Westbrick teams have never been underdogs in the playoffs he losses. He's losing to mediocre teams.

    I watched almost every game the thunder played the last 5 years. What kills them is these 3 basic things. 1) to many threes that they can't make 2) poor def and too much gambling on screens. They never fight over them 3) to many sloppy turnovers. All 3 of these things fall at Westbrook's feet. I love ya russ but Come on man!

  • climax050

    His a professional stat padder that’s it, most overrated player ever, he gives max effort and is athletic that’s it, his just a trash pg with a lot of attitude and is a glory and attention seeker all the time, that’s why they lose in the clutch cause he wants to do it himself. Most overrated player ever imo 🤷‍♂️

    Thats not truth! The guy went from being just an atlethic player to became a posting guard. A guy that has made the playoffs in the west regardless the roast and the coach cant be seen as undeserving of postseason. The problem, as i see, is the fact that Westbrook can not be the number on option of the ofense and OKC needs a Real Coach built for the playoffs... They should get Mark Jackson or one of the Van Gundys

    The biggest issue with Westbrook is he's simply not a point guard he's a shooting guard and Charles Barkley is right about this. He simply makes too many bad decisions with the ball in his hands with stupid shots and turnovers but if you got the ball out of his hands more and let him post up and come off screens for pull up jumpers he would be a much more efficient offensive player. I've been saying this for years.

  • Cheez

    Westbrook is only build to be hated from fans around the globe.

  • Mister Clutch

    I knew all of this about Westbrook in his rookie year. His attitude is jacked up. And attitude is everything. Westbrook was self destructive right out of the gate. And the saddest thing about it is that society and some in power act just like Westbrook. Its detrimental. All of the greats possessed the art of finesse and coexistence to some degree. You can tell who bites the hand that feed them and those who were given grades. Westbrook is a 2 guard or 6th man. No hate.

    What’s Sad is Westbrooks is like D Rose, they both go hard & thats their only level... But Rose has had better Playoff moments than Russ and he was injured all the time!! Russ needs to adapt and start Shooting like LeBron did. As Athletic & Quick as he is, he should model his game after Lebrons right now, Average Triples, Shoot well & carry the team - Not Hard.

    • Chur Bo
      Chur Bo

      'not hard', my friend, there's a reason only lebron is able to do that and there's also a reason why westbrook was voted 'most overrated' by the nba players and media... it's just an unfortunate fact.

  • Фоппа

    you got to feel for KD, Russel is cancerous and he got out for good reasons

  • ?

    Lmfao I thought you were going to say "Oklahoma city is absolutely TRASH" @ 5:19
