Players I'm completely SOLD on....stealing previous Idea

To start

Kirk Hinrich- Could start for over half the teams in this league, just happens to be behind one of the best in the league. Guy plays great D and is a scoring PG. I think he will get moved eventually and would be a great fit in Philly

David Lee-has showed he can be solid at worst and very good option at best. Hes by no means a star but the kind of player that is integral to championship teams

Russell Westbrook- has completely proven IMO he can handle playin the PG in the NBA. OKC made a great draft choice when people were expecting other people to go that early

Trevor Ariza- Will be given too much pressure at Houston to be a primary option but is a great defender and a superb athlete. He went from a horrid shooter to way above average in only one season, that shows you something about his work ethic

Travis Outlaw-Underrated but a very good player, would love to have him on my team

I really like Hinrick, Lee,

I really like Hinrick, Lee, and Westbrook. Ariza, IMO, will show some glaring weakensses if T-Mac isnt playing and Outlaw is a great bench player but I dont think he would be as effective in the starting lineup.

Trevor Ariza is a player

Trevor Ariza is a player that everyone will be talking about as one of if not the most overpaid players in the NBA in a season or 2. Never been that big on him, he's just an athletic defender and a good spot-up shooter. 35 million is too much for that, you could get a 2nd round pick for that.

LOL

Those are too easy to be sold on...of course.
Hinrich could start on a lot of teams. Ariza is a solid player and starter and David Lee is a double double machine.
Westbrook seems destined to become an All-Star Point Guard.

in absolutely no way

has westbrook proven he is a complete NBA point guard, the guys good but look at their record last year. i think he has an extremely bright future but you have to do more than 3rd worst in the league.. imo derrick rose is a way more proven pg in the league than westbrook.. he has a year or two to go

Dude

has potential, loads of it, could end up better then Rose, sure call me crazy. Westbrook will be a Rondo/Kidd type Point Guard, not the best shooter, but does everything thing else and does it well. In time he could improve his shooting too.

Yea its not a question to me

Yea its not a question to me who's better. Westbrook is better off the ball, but Rose is the better player overall and a much better PG.

his numbers werent that much

his numbers werent that much worse than Rose look it up, and he had the the hidden stat which is that hes a lockdown defender, i think he is the most overlooked player of that class.

Anyone knowledgable on basketball should be sold on Lee

The reason being is that he is a great player that doesn't get the credit he deserves. Coaches see it players see it however the media does not. As For Westbrook a PG with those skills and athletism its hard not to his dunks make me go shamWOW!
