if you understand the game of basketball and actually watch both play.....everybody takes Rondo.
...Except me i watch both plenty if you think Rondo averages a sh*t load of a.ssist on the thunders offense you don't watch enough Thunder games...Rondo only averages 7 or 8 a.ssist in the Thunders offense the OKC offense isn't really a good offense for high a.ssist PG's a guy like Rose, CP3, or even DWill will do fine because they are good playmakers as well as scorers so they could get by but since Rondo best attribute is his passing and playmaking on the Thunder it won't be used to the best of it's ability...contrary to popular belief Rondo on the Thunder isn't a match made in heaven.

Rondo. But I can't be mad if someone feels Westbrook is the better option.

well I have no idea what you were goin to say because I stopped after the Rondo won't average alot of a.ssists on the Thunder....Rondo would average more a.ssists on pretty much every team in the league. Celtics are holdin him back right now

Rondo = PG
Westbrook = SG

So to answer the question it's Rondo and it's not close.

thanks for the laugh...Rondo weaknesses have been hidden by the fact he was 3rd/4th scoring option on the Celtics for so long lol at he would average so much more than 11 a.ssist acting like teams offensive system doesn't matter lol

whether Rondo fans want to admit it or not Westbrook is the better player he isn't the playmaker nor does he have the court vision Rondo has but Westbrook is the better scorer by a good margin scores more and does it more efficiently and just as good at rebounding the ball plus Westbrook is harder to defend against.

Rondo
13/11/5 46% 49 TS%

Westbrook
24/5/5 47% 55 TS%

if i need a first or second option i want Westbrook but if i already got great offensive players i want Rondo...Westbrook is still the better player
yeah but #s only tell half the story. Westbrook is also a average to poor decision maker ESPECIALLY for a "Point Guard". While Rondo will never shoot you back into a game, WB will shoot you out and the way he does it makes it even worse 19 seconds on the shot clock he chucking up 17footers throwing off the offense. Durant hot here comes WB forcing a bad shot or committing a turnover.

Rondo is the better Point Guard and its not close.

For who i would rather have in the playoffs Rondo is more proven while Westbrook only has had one good playoff series (against LA in 2010) and it depends on what kind of team you have...overall Westbrook imo is the better player he was last season he is this season.

@Veno Da Don

Rondo plays the PG position better but Westbrook is the better player/more dominant player of his position and is harder to stop.

would be the best backcourt in the league by far if WB was moved to his natural position.

Rondo would do just fine in the Thunder's system. Westbrook doesn't avg a lot of a.ssists in it because he's not a natural point. Not because of lack of opportunities.

Its fine tho, because Westbrook never said he was a point guard. They're just using him there because it works for them.

westbrook isnt the passer rondo is, but lets not forget the dude has avg 8 a.ssists plus for two seasons. this is actually a down year for him passing. but his size athleticism and scoring ability are only rivaled by derrick rose. im taking westbrook. i personally like his game more than durants, dude is more deadly off the dribble and gets to the lane easier and is more versatile. im not the only one in this. and i think he still has room to grow.

and to whoever said scoring point guards dont win ships....tony parker and chancey billups say hi. thats fu*kin retarded.

what rondo does have in points for himself, he makes up in a.ssist.
with that being said...
i wouldnt start with any of those.
i'd need to see the circumstances of both teams(roster)
i would have traded rondo for westbrook, they'd work better in those situations.

i kind of agree with this most 1st option point guards don't win titles (Rose has a shot) thank god Westbrook isn't on the Thunder team i think he can win as a 2nd option as long as he plays under control and leaves the hero ball to Durant...i don't think you can win a title with Rondo as your 1st option or 2nd option probably best he is the 3rd or 4th option on a championship team.
you call WB a 2nd option and while this sounds like something logical to the all of us and the rest of the world, it is CLEAR Russ DOES NOT see himself as a second option. 2nd options dont try "hero ball" because they are aware of who the hero is. A confused Shooting Guard disguised as a PG on the other hand might just end up never understanding the concerpt of being the 2nd option.

If real life was how you described it this thread wouldn't exist. But the fact of the matter is Westbrook is not comfortable with being a second option and as a scorer he has a case he is one of the best knows it and could careless who is on his team, that's why Rondo would be my guy for that championship team.

You are correct Rondo will probably never be a first scoring option but that's only because he knows how the Point Guard position is supposed to be played (oh yeah and cause he can't shoot that well either)
