westbrook is an insane athelte and a talented player. But his bball IQ is low and he makes bad plays. Plus he's a bit of a chucker. The debate over shoot-first/pass-first has been done, it's a taste thing. He's similar in style to Rose but his bad habits are more prevalent and Rose has said he wants to be more of a facilitator, whereas westbrook has never said that as far as i know. It has been witnessed a few times that durant gets frustrated with westbrook.
right now i would have, paul, rondo, rose, nash, d will, parker as definitely more valuable to a winning than westbrook.
also players like lowry (regularly getting close to a trip double,) curry, andre miller (what a class veteran he is,) lawson, j kidd are giving their teams what a PG really should provide. Balanced, intelligent play. Rubio is going to be amazing, probably by next season, he's already great.
i realise what i'm saying is controversial, just my opinion! I'm a classic, past-first PG fan.
