      They need to adapt to ball movement and actually have shooters with their already amazing defense in the west

        Westbrook explodes for 1 attack than the next one he stand on the perimeter watching the game not doing anything to rest because he doesn't want to go to the bench until he gets his stats

                Thunder are slightly underskilled as a starting line-up, russ has ball, russ takes a low percentage shot 8 seconds into the shot clock, possession after russ turns it over 💁💁💁💁.... what else is on T.V. 📺??? FYI he gotta triple double

                    Melo still overrated, piece of garbage, Westbrick is still a trash shooter and stat padding, and PG13 and Steven Adams are carrying

                          Westlake is a ball hog - he needs to pass to George way more often.

                                Great analysis. Carmelo is a "has been" type player that is behind the curve when it comes to basketball. He needs to be benched. Bring his numbers down on purpose so that you can re-sign him cheaper.

                                    Soren Infinity is it me or is Westbrook settling down? I mean he still hangs back at times but he’s letting PG run the floor a lot more

                                          Westbrook could be one of best cutters in the nba playing off of Paul George. He needs to recognize when to go for the big play too and change speeds more. He isn’t elite shooter so he feels he needs to drive hard full speed all the time so he can get to rim but that’s easier to defend and disrupt than a player like curry who can shoot anywhere, changes speeds and directions, more under control to finish and hit floaters.
                                          Westbrook should be one of best defensive players in the nba too but that takes discipline mentally and he gambles too much.
                                          Him off the ball is unbelievable, those 10pt losses could turn into 8pt wins if he becomes best cutter in the league, give and go with Westbrook and Adams or George?

                                                  I would have never brought carmelo onboard. Maybe eight years ago, but not now.

                                                    Melo got old before Lebron James? They were in the same draft.

                                                        I think if Westbrook was a team player the thunder would win a ring they should take a page out of the spurs and gsw

Still gets open shots that are created by RW that he just bricks... Dirk is 40 yrs old... Yet he still had one of the highest fg% when 90% of his shots are all jumpers! Melo either doesn't give a shit anymore... Or he never put in the work in the gym... Once he lost his athletic ability hes cant rely on a post game... Nor can he even hit open shots... Nor can he take bigs off the dribble... The very best when they lose their athletic ability have worked very hard on other parts of their game to still make them effective...
