    Good Guy Westbrook.

    Returns against the Heat so if they lose, he gets all the blame.

    I used to discuss Westbrook vs Rose "who is better" , now since the Westbrook injury last playoffs and Rose's two major injuries. I am discussing about their health now......

    Good news for the league, the only person capable of consistently shutting down KD is coming back!

    The thunder almost got swept w/o RW last year. Their record this year is better with RW. I think RW is holding back KD is so 2012.

    We'll see. I'm not a fan of chucker SG's pretending to be PG's because they're too small.

    The most important part is durant can go back to coasting so he is fresher for the playoffs

    Westbrook... the only guy who can stop Durant.

    OKC and LAC are the Rockets' biggest obstacles.

    True dat. He will be blamed for everything that goes wrong. Too bad the Heat are his first game back.

    He will win the MVP if OKC keeps winning. It's that simple, even if his stats dip a little.

    He's generated enough buzz already statistically that consistently winning now at a higher clip will seal the MVP.

    Numbers are clear. They are better with Reggie Jackson starting. Russell should be 6th man off the bench.

    Exactly what numbers are clear?

    This should be good.

    You must be Skip Bayless. Or those dumb enough to question a team is better enough without its best players.

    Think he's making a joke. "The numbers are clear: Patrick Beverley deserves to start over Jeremy Lin"

    When he does come back, he should be put on the same precautions as wade. Save him for the playoffs, since they're so so well as is.

    Wade is never going to be healthy.

    Westbrook needs to regain his rhythm and playing at his peak going int othe playoffs for OKC to make a run.

    a 7 game series is different from playing a different team every night. They can't hone in on your weaknesses as much.
