I don't hate the guy, I just think he's run his course. It's time to move forward, on all accounts. As I said, I will not spend a dime watching this team next season with the same lineup and coach. What's the point?
you don't want to watch russell westbrook? i thought part of the reason westbrook's extension was warranted was because no matter how good or bad the team is, we get to watch one of the most dynamic players in nba history?
Westbrook is fine. He just never had the proper team built around him. He's stuck with a 1990's team. Presti had no foresight for this. You can't surround the guy with terrible shooters. It's going to be even worse with Andre **** Roberson next year.
replacing ferguson with 2017-18 roberson would make the team better on both ends. he can't shoot but he does other things on offense. ferguson can do nothing but shoot and he's not even that good at it and only attempts 7-8 3PA/100 possessions.
it was westbrook's inability to make jump shots from anywhere this year is what primarily informed portland's defensive strategy. a strategy they cannot deploy against any other team in the west playoffs so brazenly.
