The problem with any argument in favor of Westbrook that relies on stats is that it completely ignores his Terrible Three. In fairness to Haberstroh, he did admit Westbrook’s decision making still makes him cringe. But stats, no matter how advanced, never tell the whole story. And relying on them too much, in whatever form, can cloud judgment.
Westbrook and Rose are not comparable. They are in two totally different situations. Rose doesn’t have the back-to-back scoring champ flanking him on the wing. You just can’t overlook that. Nor can you overlook how predictable Westbrook can be. There were too many times last season when you just knew he’d come down and take a 17-foot pull up without even thinking about looking for something else. All that needs to be considered, and it goes back to the trite “watch the game” argument.
I know it seems like I’m bagging on Westbrook. Trust me, I’m not. I think he’s a phenomenal player. I think he’s a top 20 player. And if he’s not just where he belongs at No. 15 then he’s not far from it.
