I disagree, why wouldn't he be a good shooting guard? He's too small? What is he like 6'3"? THat's fine, D Wade is 6'4" and he's doin fine, I see Westbrook as a very similar type of player with that mid-range game, and with the speed and athleticism he has, he needs to be running off the ball and making plays that way he is a horrible point guard all you gotta do is watch a few possessions in a row he has tunnel vision, that might be good for pure scorers that is not the job description of a point guard.
Dwade is much bigger and stronger than Westbrook. The only comparison isn that their athletic and that is where it stops. Westbrook does not have that scorers game or mentality like a shooting guard can have. Yes he is comfortable in a high tempo game where scoring comes easy but he doesnt have a half court game. Doesn't have enough of a close and midrange game, doesn't play off the ball AT ALL, no post game and his range is questionable. As a focal point he would not even be Iverson scoring the ball. Like Derrick Rose, Russell has developed the great pull up game but besides that he doesn't have any moves. Hence why Kobe can guard him, he can't jump over 6'5 and up for those midranges like he does the little guys.

I would contend that the only reason for most of what you said is because he has been forced into the role of a point guard. You're saying he "doesn't have a half court game" Doesnt have a close to mid-range game?

"Doesn't play off the ball AT ALL"

NO sh*t! HE BRINGS THE BALL UP EVERY fu*kING POSSESSION OF EVERY 4th QUARTER!

A good coach needs to intervene and explain exactly what Westbrook's talents lend themselves to in the NBA, which is a potent scorer at the shooting-guard position. He will carve his own unique position in that role, but to say he's incapable is ludicrous and flat out wrong, you are just so used to seeing him bring the ball up for this team you don't realize his potential.

He brings the ball up, and DOESN'T PASS, but instead drives to score/shoots a jumper like 75% of the time. That's a point guard? fu*k nah, he has been forced into the wrong position, maybe its necessary because their roster doesn't have anyone else but don't deny the facts.

Kobe has a bad shooting night it's so we not gonna talk about how (insert defender here) locked Kobe down. Westbrook has a bad shooting night while being guarded by Kobe and he just has a bad shooting night

durant was cold, westbrook was his usual out of control self....he just missed more shots


i seen kobe sweating hard trying to keep up with homie, getting in a real serious defensive stance dont mean you are locking him up, RW still got into the lane, and shot a good amt of free throws....kobe tried to use the intimidation factor, and it worked to an extent.

its like, everytime durant takes a shot...even if he makes it, westbrook has to go and take the next shot.....i feel that it throws off the rhythm sometimes

let durant get off 3 shots in a row, then let westbrook pick his spots when to attack......but whatever, they got a good record....but lets see what happens in the playoffs.
