Claudius- your posts in this thread have been excellent.

bill- I'm one of those who "rip" on westbrook but i have to admit this season, I've been adjusting my opinions. Obviously his leap in APG is extremely impressive. He's a decent defender and is improving that. The only issue left is the IQ, still too many TOs, but he's made (smaller) improvements in that area too. Last season i would've undoubtedly kept harden, the mooted rondo/westbrook trade would've been incredible for OKC! But now, i'd say it's a close call, i may even go with westbrook! Especially with k-mart doing so well and the potential of lamb.

as for the jonas talk, ridiculous. Yeah, of course we can question him, who isn't!? but question his performances NOW, not future! Yes there was a question mark used but "false messiah" is a very emotive phrase and suggests towards the future. There are ZERO conclusions to be made about JVs future based on his play so far.
