    What X's and O's? Our offense is about 90% isolation, less ball movement and traditional 'offense' than every other team in the league. He is absolutely right - 'X's and O's' are not responsible for our poor performances. It is a lack of effort, consistency, and the inherent volatility of shooting more 3's than anybody else.

    Preach. We would be a lot more consistent if everyone could turn it to another gear like Russ. Funny how people were crying about how badly they missed CP3 on a night where Westbrook scored 35 on terrific shooting. Gonna be real awkward when they all have to pretend to be Westbrook supporters when we make the finals.

    Westbrook brings a different dimension that we haven't had on a Harden roster. We didn't need another player that plays at the same pace as Harden and has a similar skill set when he's not even going to be allowed to do the thing he is best at - running the offense.

    I love everything about Westbrook except his:

    -Poor general 3 point shooting %
    -Occasional questionable on-court decisions
    -Overpaid salary (only because it's killing our cap space, technically CP3's fault)

    I wonder how the other players feel about Westbrook resting back-to-backs, which kills continuity and overextends the short rotation. He's 100% and yet is being pampered by the coaches and medical staff. And he's the one talking?

    MDA overextends our rotations not Westbrook. We have decent young players and refuse to use them, or even worse, waive them to save money.
