    Offensive rebound is better than an assist though.

    I know Durant and Westbrook are top 10 players, but I didn't realize just how average their team looks. Am I wrong in saying that?

    3. Nash was notoriously bad defensively. Westbrook is top tier.
    4. Nash shot career .428 from 3. Westbrook is not a great 3 point threat. .304 average
    5. Westbrook is nowhere near the floor general Nash was. Not the most willing passer despite his numbers.
    6. Enes Kanter = Amare? How are these players even remotely similar? I understand neither play defense, but you can't be serious. Kanter isn't an elite athlete by any metric.

    You'd honestly be better off comparing Westbrook to Kidd. As ridiculous as that sounds, at least it makes more sense than Steve Nash. Really?

    They are very similar to the Clippers. Basically the exact same team.

    Kanter = DeAndre
    Durant = CP3
    Westbrook = Stephenson
    Ibaka = Griffin
    Novak = Reddick

    Comparing prime Amare a uber athletic freak to Kanter....

    Comparing Nash a ultra efficiently non athletic player to Westbrook...

    Like, why?

    What a terrible, terrible thread to post at 3 different locations. Poor OP must have thought he had a good idea, but really it's terrible.

    Has anyone ever noticed how similar the Thunder are to the Avengers?

    Westbrook = Captain America
    Waiters = Hawkeye
    Durant = Iron Man
    Ibaka = Thor
    Kanter = Pepper Potts

    If they want to treat KD as a PHX shooter ala Joe Johnson, I hope the Rockets will be the Hawks in that situation.

    Crazy thread dude!!

    I'm not buying the Thunder this year. Their frontline is significantly worse than when they were good, they lost Harden and Sefolosha, and haven't done anything to fill that gap. They'll be starting Roberson there. I'm just not buying the hype. Maybe home court advantage, but I see the tops as the Warriors, Rockets, Clippers, and Spurs, in that order. I see the Thunder, Grizzlies, Pelicans, and Jazz rounding out the bottom half. I think there will actually be some separation from the top eight and bottom seven this year, and I see those being the Suns and Kings, then the Timberwolves and Lakers, then the Trailblazers and Nuggets, and the Mavericks will finish last (they'll tank).

    russell westbrook is the next donald trump.

    westbrook = trump
    KD = carson
    ibaka = bush
    kanter = rubio
    novak = fiorina

    whereas the suns were more liberal:

    nash = hilary
    amare = bernie
    marion = biden
    the rest of their shooters = the rest of the democratic candidates

    Lol OP... log off you're drunk!! And don't get me wrong Westbrook is a great player, but he likes to shoot more than pass... I mean unless WB had a lobotomy, or swapped places with Nash, haha

    I'm at work and read this thread sitting down in the restroom. If brought me to tears.

    Thanks for the laugh. It's been a very rough week.

    The most obvious missing piece is Steve Nash. Who is going to be Westbrook's Nash so that he can be the next Nash?
