Westbrook takes the most ill-advised shots ever


Even when he makes them its like "did you really just shoot that?"
Real talk......


I dont care if the fool ends up with 29-6-7.......odds are he has a sh*tload of turnovers, momentum k!llling shots........and shot 30 times. Stats lie like a mug for this dude......he played like sh*t, but 2 to 1.....this dude was home tellin his boys.......look at my stats.....The heat aint fu*kin with me

thunder are now 25WINS-6 loses when westbrook shots more then durant... i agree he shot bad, he shoots dumb a.ss shots, but that stat right there tells u, that him shooting more then durant has nothing to do with why they lost. they lost because the sh*tty a.ss 16-2 start. they lost because foul trouble. they lost because durant missing free throws. they lost because the refs didnt call the foul on lebron that would of put durant at the line to tie the game w/ like 6 sec left. they lost because the heat needed to win.. it is not over. the thunder are the better team. they average out to be 25yrs old. durant is 2 days older then me, bout to be 24. 3 time scoring champ. they are the definition of a real team that is real good. the heat are a fu*king joke. they put a super team together and then get every player you can think of for super cheap.. and they still have a hard time winning. lol..

This is ridiculous. The reason he took so many shots was b/c Durant got in foul trouble with 4 minutes left in 1st quarter. Prior to that Westbrook wasn't the only one missing shots. Durant missed a couple open ones. Also the Heat's defense forced Perkins and Ibaka to do things offensively and they could not. Until Harden came on the floor the entire Thunder offense was sh*t and that wasn't solely because of Westbrook. And then Durant gets in foul trouble and Westbrook has to keep shooting to make up for the lost in offense.

I thought Westbrook played well last night. He played to who he is and played it well. He got Durant the ball in the fourth during their come back. Got Harden the ball when he was hot in the first half and then mixed in his shots throughout.

Contrary to popular belief the Thunder are not some great offensive team. They have 3 guys that can be relied on score much like the Heat. Westbrook is one of those guys and because he is the PG he is the one with the ball most of the time. They need him to score..so he looks for his shot. I wholeheartedly disagree with this article. This guy did not watch the game or only skimmed it. He even admitted that he thinks Westbrook is at fault every time the Thunder lose. He wasn't last night.

Miami is a great defensive team...the Thunder have 2 scorers on the floor to start the game...it's only logical that the Heat would force poor starts. That's two straight games now...its not mental or a lack of focus for the Thunder. It's not Westbrook or Durant...is the Heat's defense in dealing with the average offensive team the Thunder start the game off with.

Westbrook gets way too much hate. A lot of his shots come from the ball just being in his hands so much. Thunder's offense is so fu*ked up that if Durant comes off the screen and he's not open for a shot then Westbrook going 1 on 1 is the next best option for the Thunder in the half court. Look at how many shots he has to jack against the shot clock. Only thing he can do better is stop taking 3's and quick shots. Ya'll need to watch the games.

Westbrook has a tendency to force the issue too much apart and his bball iq has always been a issue been saying it forever now so it's a old issue honestly...also for the finals they must switch that starting lineup or put Harden out their earlier cause KD and RW are the only two players in the starting lineup who are consistent scorers.

the Westbrook HATE is a joke. He had 2 turnovers last night

What happens if westbrook makes 2 more shots in the 1st quarter and goes 3-7, they are still down 18-6. Nobody else was making shots. Durant was busy getting into foul trouble and the rest of the team was busy turning the ball over leading to easy points for the Heat

How about Durant grabbing 3 huge boards last night? No mention, yeah while Westbrook was busy leading the team in rebounding. Thats not an important part of the game

Perkins goes 1-5 (1-4 from inside 2 feet) and turns the ball over 3 times. He barely touches the ball, how do you turn it over 3 times?

Fisher goes 0-4 from downtown, thanks for the contribution

They were down 12 at the end of the 1st quarter. That is jack sh*t in the NBA. Jack sh*t. Its nothing. Westbrook did work the rest of the way. He played great the final 3 quarters. Talk about both sides

@ People who blame westbrook dont know ish about ball. Yeah, he makes dumb fu*king plays. Just like KB forces shots. Its whatever, but the bottom line is; No westbrook & thunder barely get in the playoffs and dont make it out the first round. Were talking about a guy who is avg.24-6. Are you fu*king kidding me? He's the problem? Really?

n*ggaz said Rondo?


Rondo is a pass 1st n*gga! So KD & JH have to avg. 80 togther a night for them to have a chance.


You wonder why KD cant get doubled? Well, ummm. Yeah. Its because of Russy!


These n*ggaz are in the finals! Finals!!!!!

What needs to be exposed is Durant's almost as bad as Dirk defense. Dude doesn't move hsi fu*king feet whether he's guarding the man or the help guy. I guess he figures he has long a.ss arms and can just stick them in instead of defending.

Trade him for Rondo, he can go to Celtics and shoot and score like he wants to do

KD needs a PG to set him up, not a wannabe star of the team like this idiot

Westbrook is the problem. If you don't realize that, then you don't know sh*t.

The Thunder can't rotate from the weak to strong side consistently. Why? Westbrook shoots as soon as he gets the ball back into his hands.

The Thunder call many pick and rolls, but rarely pass to the cutter. Why? Westbrook shoots.

The Thunder are on a two on 1 break, with Westbrook leading. Westbrook pulls up.

Miami just scored on the previous possession, and has already set their defense. Westbrook attacks the rim, taking all defenders.

Russell Westbrook shoots just over 31% from beyond the arc this season, and has attempted 10 in two games. Hardly efficient. Most of these shots aren't attempted at the end of the shot clock either. These are early into the possession.


To sum this up, Westbrook is very talented idiot that just happens to have a style of play that does not subtract from Kevin Durant. It actually complements Durant, since he's a spot up shooter and occasional slasher versus a ball handling forward a la LeBron James.

Like others have said, implied, or even insinuated, Westbrook's play is a double edged sword that will eventually k!ll the Thunder. It's similar to Orlando's reliance on 3 pointers in 2009, New Jersey's break neck tempo in 2002-03, and LeBron's one man crew in 2007.

Sure that bullsh*t will get you into the finals every once in a while, but good luck winning it all with an idiot at the helm.

Dirk was never the terrible defender people make him out the be Dirk was never elite but he was never Amare/Nash status Dirk had a couple of years back in the day when he was actually pretty good so i never understood all that Dirk never play d talk...Durant also isn't a bad defender i think in the first two games he hasn't defended LBJ well enough not moving his feet quickly and depending too much on his length i think Durant is capable of forcing LBJ to be a jumpshooter and contesting every shot but when he is on him he has to be locked in...I doubt if KD plays too much time on him tho Thabo will probably be tasked to guard for most of the time
