    I’m sure they have legitimate points but I refuse to reward them for a click baity title. In the NBA Playoffs, everyone guards everyone.

    39.1% on catch and shoot 3's in the playoffs. I am fine with defenders leaving him open when Harden plays point. Then there is the question of when Harden and WB are playing together, is Harden really going to be the one that primarily plays point? I think it will go back to 2 seasons ago where Harden parks on the perimeter and waits for the catch and shoot while WB can actually break down the D unlike CP3 last season.

    It’s going to be really weird this season feeling like I need to defend Westbrook against all the haters.

    IKR! We all know there are a million different ways this season can shake out, but that's where the fun is IMO.

    he made 11 3's in the playoffs vs portland. that % isn't exactly that impressive considering the attempts and total made shots.

    None of us will know how it is going to work until we see how it works.

    Trade multiple picks to make your star player worse.

    They were probably knob slobbish over his triple dubs and gave him mvp over James.

    See the thread about Paul vs. WB in the playoffs. Missed your complaint about CP’s low number of attempts.

    It's not meant to be impressive. It's meant to illustrate the point that he is not some awful shooter off the catch. No one is saying he is good at it, but don't act like he's terrible at it either. Is he a CP3? No, but he doesn't need to be either. He just needs to not be Rondo, Roberson, Smart, Rubio, etc. He just needs to be Iggy where if you leave him wide open with his feet set and he gets the ball, you know there's a fairly good chance that it will go in. The problem with WB has always been his off-balance jumpers or 25+ft off the dribble threes he loves to jack up.

    I can only hope that he gives me reason to defend him.
