Again, Da Czar was simply answering questions on the forums (some of 2K23 MT you probably won't even know what some of the topics are) He did not have any obligation to answer any questions.Barnes, a pro of 15 years who was a part of two seasons for the Kobe Bryant/Pau Gasol Lakers He also mentioned that he was the host of a 2K launch party recently and that Westbrook's ranking was the most talked about 2K23 factoid of the night. "I believe, even though Russ experienced an off-season last year, I think that his ranking is a bit low," Barnes opined. I think Pat Bev is right there... an 79 is a solid ranking however, Russ's rank is too low."
If the 79 team is strong, wouldn't it be the same for 78? Beverley is a solid defender and a good three-point shooter. Westbrook might be a better passer (at minimum, during the initial 40 minutes of a game) and rebounder, figures that a video game might have to recognize, but he's clearly not a "better" performer than Beverley at this stage of their respective careers. "Russ even though you are critical of his game and you critique his weaknesses I'm convinced that Westbrook still plays," Ogwumike contended on the show. "
He shows up He'll give you at least 20 [pointspossibly 8 or more [assists]? rebounds? unclear]. "Of course, much of that performance is an immediate result of Westbrook turning his back on or abusing wide-open teammates , and thus causing small-percentage heaves when in traffic. As the central point of an offensive Westbrook's 6-foot-3" UCLA product is now an unproductive detriment for his teammates' success.
The decline of Westbrook came quickly. He was an unremarkable All-Star in his 2019-20 NBA time with James Harden's Houston Rockets. But even that model of Westbrook is gone now. His weaknesses outweigh his strengths. Although he does put the numbers up (though even those numbers are decreasing), but he is most likely to be utilized in the near future to serve as a spark plug off the bench to face off against the second unit of opponents rather than as a starter.
The public perception of Westbrook is more pronounced than his actual nighttime, nighttime contributions should reveal. It's not the first time to say this however it's reminiscent of the steep fall of Allen Iverson, who bristled at the thought of being off the bench until he was out of the league entirely.There's still plenty of time for Russell Westbrook to avoid the same Buy MT 2K23 fate, if willing to go that route.
