For some reason Chicago fans can't stand anyone talking about another PG besides Rose. Even if it's not a direct comparison.

can't be serious...hes a better SG than PG.

he is a athletic freak! but lacks pg skills.

Id put him behind, in no order...Rose, Paul, Deron Williams, maybe Tony Parker

You're building a franchise and get to choose one PG to build your team around + a bunch of random FA's.. if you take Rondo over Westbrook you're an idiot.

Or you want a pg who defines the position. Not a run and gun player who just might be the streakiest player in the NBA.

Rondo and Westbrook are 2 sides of the same coin. Jekyll and Hyde

tell me why?

rondo is better ball handler, passer, getting to the basket and DEF a better defender.

westbrook is a better shooter and more athletic.

Rondo also has the experience of WINNING a NBA Championship, which most PG's can't even say

Westbrook is elite. He's one of the best scorers at the position, bar none. He's an elite defender. So he's running more isos this year: of course his assist numbers have dropped. It's not like it's hurting them in the standings; they're going with what works and him and Durant playing a lot of one on one is working. He averaged 8 assists back to back years so it's not like he can't distribute.

Streakiest? He's been pretty damn consistent ever since he got over a bad patch at the start of the season.

In b4 bad start = streaky.

Rondo also won it with KG, PP, and Ray-Ray carrying him all the way. When Westbrook wins his 7 championships he will be one of the guys carrying.

This x1000000000

People act like having a PG with the elite ability to score is a terrible thing, yet 2 of the top three teams in the league have this kind of PG while all the best distributers are hovering around .500 and below. That's all the proof you need.

EDIT: Just to be clear, I'm not saying the Westbrook/Rose type of PG is any better than a Rondo/Nash, just pointing out that it definitely isn't worse.

Westbrook is a very capable passer.

His career AST% is 35.7, while Rose is at 33.4.

He averaged 8 assists in 09-10 and 8.2 assists in 10-11. His assists are down this year because he has to shoulder a larger scoring role with the complete lack of offensive firepower on the Thunder outside of Durant and Harden. In addition, Harden and Durant are facilitating the offense a bit more than year's past, and both of their assist numbers are up, while Westbrook's are down. Makes sense.

Also take into consideration that Scott Brooks is among the worst coaches in the league. The offense OKC runs is absolute sh*t.

Unfortunatly I don't get to watch too much of Kyrie Irving...but when I get to see him play, its a treat. This kid is the future of the NBA.

I was very very skeptical of him being the first pick, but man has he played up to the hype.

I like Irving.. the NBA is gonna be fun to watch once he develops.. Rose and Westbrook are in their prime (yes, can you believe they're not even in their prime yet?).. Bricky Rubio gets some experience.. Jeremy Lin gets some experience.. gonna be a point guard league.
