Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why Russell Westbrook could become the gold standard going forward on how NBA teams evaluate their big boards during Draft time… And not for reasons you would expect.
Westbrook is statistically one of the best players of his era but hasn’t advanced past the first round since Kevin Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder. Colin says Westbrook is the biggest reason for the team’s playoff failures, and believes OKC’s 3-1 deficit to a Portland Trail Blazers team led by two perimeter guards in Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum is a prime example of how shooting always beats athleticism in today’s NBA.
Check out the audio below as Colin believes players like Westbrook, John Wall, and Derrick Rose will soon be obsolete… At least for teams who actually want to WIN a playoff series.
