    He fits better with Washington and Beal than he does with Houston and Harden. I expect Wizards to be a playoff team and can easily knock out MIL or BOS in a 7 game series if they stay healthy and get hot

    It will be funny if Beal asks out in 3 months from now.

    I don’t understand wanting out of Houston but wanting there if that’s the case.

    back to his empty worthless stats that he wants. they'll fight for a bottom 7th or 8th seed and get destroyed in the 1st round. That's their highest ceiling

    I don't think that would be funny. It's absolutely expected. That team not making the playoffs and being competitive would be a failure. Westbrook is an all star and Wall has been hurt so there should be a massive improvement in their win total.

    okay, Washington making it to the conference semi-finals or beyond and Houston losing to the Lakers in the first round . . . THAT would be hilarious.

    46 wins and a first round exit, the Westbrook special.

    Don't forget the special also includes all star teammate bailing on the team to not play with Russ lol. Might as well start packing Beal's bags.

    Wouldn't be surprise if Westbrook has a great statistical season, is an all-star, helps them make the playoffs and Washington trades him for multiple picks in 2021.

    Weird, just had a sense of Deja Vu

    If Brooks allows Russ to do what he did in OKC in Washington I expect Russ to have an all-star calibre season. However everybody knows they are not going to win anything and no serious contender will ever trade for him even if he has a good year.

    People say this but people are saying this about Harden now too.

    "He'll put up great numbers but we all know he's not winning a championship."

    And they would be wrong.

    Westbrook puts up good numbers if what you consider to be good numbers are lots of points, rebounds and assists with no consideration to efficiency, net rating and wins and losses.

    Sadly there is still a huge portion of fans who think like this.

    Westbrook is what you see in the NBA dictionary when you look up empty calories.

    Harden is the opposite.
