Chat Recap: Sports editor Mike Sherman on Thunder-Nuggets Game 4
Here are a few excerpts:
On whether Russell Westbrook killed the Thunder last night with 30 shots:
Sherman: I’ve got some pretty strong opinions on this. Westbrook played poorly but anyone who overreacts and calls for more Maynor or for Westbrook to change the way his plays is missing the point. Young talented players learn from their mistakes. Westbrook is young and talented. He’s still developing and last night will be a marker for him.
My advice to Westbrook, “Don’t go changing.” He’s one of the five most gifted players in the NBA. He plays with a chip on his shoulder for good reason. His high school coach barely gave him a suit. His college coach played him behind Darren Collison. His first NBA coach thought he wasn’t a point guard. History has proven them all wrong. So you can see how the guy might have a me against the world mentality. It’s served him very well to this point. Now it’s time for him to moderate it. As I said earlier, talented young players and people usually improve.
