He's my favorite non Knick no question
As well as all the other headcases that have incredible talent like Bynum and KG

Nah, Rose would have a similar problem with the fit if he had to defer to a Durant-esque player every night. If Westbrook was The Man on his own team, I think he'd break out of his little zone and step it up a notch to keep his team elite. There's only so much he can do with two other elite scorers on the floor with him.

I agree with this. I feel they're interchangeable. If you put Westbrook on Chicago I think they still make it to the ECF or finals consistently

They bring a lot of the same qualities to the table

Amar'e :(

I hope he comes back strong next year. Such a disappointing year for him. Still got faith. He played well off Lin. Needs to be able to finish though. He got stuffed wayyyyyy too much at the basket last year. I expect a return to form

I don't think Rose would struggle or be any different if he had someone like Durant, he's always looking for his Bull teammates on offense, he handles operating a half court offense a lot smarter and smoother than Westbrook, he doesn't jack up 15 foot jumpers with 22 seconds left on the shot clock. Rose is a much more intelligent and in control player than Westbrook. They are pretty equal physically but Rose is on another level mentally than Westbrook.

Enjoyable game, thought I hoped for a different outcome.

Prediction: First team to win on the other's court will win the series.

Rose should not be second. He's basically Westbrook with a shitty ankle.

Dude you do not know Basketball then. I hate the Bulls but Derrick Rose is the 2nd best PG in the game. Just because a guy is out for a few games this year does not make him worse then Westbrook.
