    I think the Bulls will definitely be contenders. I want to see what the Thunder are going to do too.

    UGH! Westbrook has been a blackhole. I'm hoping he pulls it together by the playoffs but i don't think he will. And don't get me wrong he's good. Really good actually, his shot selection is horrible though. He gets a lot of unneccesary turnovers too.

    It'd be better if he was the #1 guy on his own team, but he's not: He's Pippen. Every time he hogs, he is taking away from one of the best players in the league. The Thunder would do well to trade him for good supporting players that will add to Durant's arsenal.

    But all of it's been said before. Still, I would love to see Rose and Durant. They are my favorite players outside of the Suns/Warriors.

    Yeah I agree he needs to defer to Durant and take over when Durant is having an of night(whenever that happens lol). I'm a big fan of Durant though. I like what Tony Parker is doing this year too. In my mind he should definitely be in the top running MVP. He has carried the Spurs on his back this year.

    Everybody loves to talk about what a blackhole Westbrook is, but Durant is on another level. Durant doesn't have a single assist in the final 3 minutes of a game, which seems insane. And I'm personally more concerned with the fact that Harden is being squeezed out at the end of games. Harden is awesome and he is getting almost no shots in the clutch when he is an amazing shooter during the season. (Durant: .497/.379/.857, Harden: .491/.390/.846, Westbrook: .457/.319/.821) Imagine if the Spurs didn't let Ginobili be part of the offense in the clutch. That would be really stupid and Harden is as about good as Ginobili without the injury history.


    This article lists play usage in close games for the big 3 of the Thunder & the Heat and includes the numbers to back up my claim that Harden is being squeezed out of the offense late in games while Durant gets the most shots of anybody on the list.

    Well for one thing Westbrook is a point guard. His role is to distribute the ball. Also Durant is the star of that team he should take most of the big shots down the stretch. Also I don't see Durant force a lot of shots, Westbrook on the other hand does. Westbrook is known for holding the ball or just jacking up random shot. That a difference from Durant coming down and finding
