He didn't take shots early and allowed others to get involved, then he took over as the game wore on. It sure was nice to get some help from Westbrook so he didn't wear down by the 4th quarter.
From the game thread. Here's a question. How good is Bradley Beal? I mean that honestly. I think he can be the best player on a championship team.
I dunno. The 4 players around him would have to be quite good with a deep bench, like a Detroit Pistons situation in their heydays. Even AD couldn't win as a number 1. Very few players can unless you put a loaded roster around him.
The more you look at it, what Dirk did to win his Championship was the stuff of legends considering the roster. But it was built to maximize the strengths of everyone and coached perfectly. Like a perfect synergy. We have nothing like that.
