@Crow The last several games I've noticed a positive change with Westbrook in that he seems to be taking less bad shots and has been embracing more of a role as a facilitator. It seems like he's making the team a lot better overall by doing this. Go Thunder!

@sammasaaron @kennygee90 I love RW's passing but hate the fact that when he gets frustrated he presses the bet by taking poor shots or forcing himself at the rim. If he would put that energy into making a better play for his teammates that would be a huge development for his game.

@bmuelle21 I disagree. It's not that KD is trying to be like Lebron, it's that he's trying to become more of a complete player! KD's passing ability could be better, but the guy makes some nice passes and does a good job in getting his teammates involved. He makes some bad turnovers at times, and needs to work on that area hard. If he keeps improving hopefully we'll all get to see more of the scoring machine that we all know and love, but also more of an awesome playmaker and rebounder and leader also.
@HerseyHawkins @Matt32 @Lost Ones This blog mentioned how KD has been showing more frustration with the ref's than other years so far. I do like how much more aggressive he's become in the 4th, and see an improvement in his assertiveness because of this.
@Matt32 @HerseyHawkins @Lost Ones Take away 5 shots of RW and let KMart and Ibaka get a few more shots each IMO. Doing this will augment the teams offensive rating drastically IMHO (and will be much less painful to watch).
@sammasaaron @Matt32 @HerseyHawkins @Lost Ones I'm sorry if you don't think 8 games of watching RW throw up 6+ bad 3 pointers per is enough already but I'm crying uncle! The guy is not a long range shooter!
@Matt32 @HerseyHawkins @Lost Ones The stats don't lie in the long run. Having a player take that many shots on such low % will screw the team's offensive ability in the long run.
@Matt32 @HerseyHawkins @Lost Ones Meanwhile RW is having a career worst shooting % on high volume (19.7 shots/game). How about KD keeps doing what he's doing, and RW takes 5 less shots, giving his teammates a chance to prove their worth instead of having RW seal their fates for them?
@HerseyHawkins @Lost Ones I think his game has improved drastically only he's not taking enough shots right now. He averaged 19.7 shots a game the last two seasons and so far has only averaged 17.1 shots a game. Maybe someone should give RW a hint! He throws up 18.6 shots a game and doesn't even hit them at a 40% clip!
Well deserved Harden!! Next on the Thunder agenda will be the 2011-2012 championship. Make it happen, Presti!!

@FF_pickups lol i agree hypothetical arguments are pretty useless yet somehow they are still widely used!
3 years ago on Derrick Rose says KD’s the MVP right now
@El Prez The guy is an athletic freak and that is a great thing but he has a ton of flaws that hurt the team a lot also. Watching him play is seriously a love-hate relationship. He has a lot of positives though and I think overall he's good for the team, but if he would work out his weaknesses the Thunder could be a lot better too. Problems is that a lot of Westbrook's strengths are directly linked to his weaknesses also. Would he be fearless if he wasn't as agressive?--and if he wasn't as agressive, would he make better in game decisions? Can't complain too much when the Thunder are the #1 team in the West though! :)
@FF_pickups If we took out both Lebron and KD from both teams which one would be more successful right now? I'm betting Miami would be doing better than the Thunder.
@El Prez I agree that it would be hard to reason why KD should deserve MVP if he weren't even the MVP of his own team--but I totally disagree with your assessment that RW is the MVP of the Thunder. The guy has made huge improvements in his shot selection, and that has helped the Thunder a lot; but he still shoots way too much, defends poorly (loses his man often), creates a lot of mis-matches when he drives to the hoop and falls and fails to get back to defend, and is often too emotional (not in a good way) to be the leader of the Thunder. That's just my honest opinion though; and even though I'm sure you don't agree with it I hope you'll respect that everyone see's things from a different perspective!
Right now most people agree that MVP is between KD and Lebron. They are the front-runners. Because of this, we can compare reasons for and against each candidate winning MVP.
Reason why Lebron should win: His phenomenal stats this year. He is the best player in one of the best teams in the East. He is considered by many to be the best player in the game today.
Reasons why Lebron should not win: His many disappointing performances when under pressure. Wade also having a great season and is considered by some to be the true leader of their team.
Reason why KD should win: Clutch factor. Outperforming Lebron in heads-up matchups so far this year. Widely considered as being the leader and MVP of the #1 team in the West. He is having another phenomenal season and improved significantly in many areas of his game.
Reasons why KD should not win: Westbrook also having a great season. KD seems like he is too passive sometimes and hasn't made as big of an impact to the team as Westbrook.

Fisher is exactly what the Thunder needed. Actually could we bring in a mad scientist who could fuse together Westbrook's athleticism with Fisher's age-acquired experience? TIA Presti!
