This puts to bed the ? of who is more explosive between him and Westbrook.
I think he has his legs back under him. This looks like the dunks he did in high school.
not to mention 32 pts and 5 asst night and a win in PHK
I was just like DANNGGGGGG.....Poor Dragic...Least he tried right?
His head almost hit the backboard. what was his vert again?
look at the reaction of the suns fans around 18 second, that is priceless.
Oh my... LOL. He COCKED it back... Threw, not just dunked, but threw it in the rim and then had to duck his head so he didn't hit the backboard. WOW.
*Coughs*... Where did all of those Derrick Rose haters disappear to lol? Westbrook is more athletic than Rose... PLEASE. Like I've said... Just because Rose doesn't fly wrecklessly towards the rim like an out of control race car doesn't mean somebody is more athletic than him.
that was sick i'm glad that i watched the end of that game..i believe his vert is even better than 40 , just take a look he did that dunk jumping out of two legs...sorry John Wall you are also stud, also #1 pick also future star also super-athletic but Rose is still better athlete, just the best in the NBA not named LeBron IMO.
I hate NBA.com..i have to watch a :30 second commercial, to watch a :10 second video
Anyway, that is an amazing dunk, by an amazing player
EXPlosive means u explode right?
That was real nasty by D-Rose, but Damien Wilkins' slam on Nenad Krstic should draw a felony assault charge...http://www.nba.com/video/channels/top_plays/2010/01/22/20100122_dotn.nba/?ls=iref:nbahpt2
Yea that dunk was sick lol...He was super high too, he exploded off the floor
that dunk was niccccce. but how does that dunk on another guard put to rest who is more explosive that Red Auerbach link doesnt look reckless to me. matter of fact i never hear mention of westbrook being wreckless when i watch him play or watch highlights.. must be personal attack thing
how about this dunk against the warriors at the 44sec mark over a 7footer.......as stan lee says....nuff said
Rose's dunk was way more impressive than that. Westbrook had a wide open lane to the rim and the defender rotated over like molasses lol. Westbrook is an elite athlete, but he's not on Rose's level.
It's not a personal attack. I like Westbrook. He just plays a more wreckless/live wire style of game, while Rose is reserved so people assume Westbrook is more athletic.
I salute Quincey for sticking with Westbrook but where is everyone else that said the same thing? Westbrook has more highlight dunks because, and this is just my opinion, because the defenders stay with their men against the thunder. If the opposing teams defenders leave their man, westbrook finds, Durant, Green, Krstic, and Sefolosha for open jumpshots. When Rose attacks the defense collapses onto him and they make the Bulls knck down J's. And the Bulls dont have the shooters the Thunder do. Rose is more athletic than Westbrook. Its not a knock on Westbrook, its just more of a compliment for Rose.
yeah that is a opinion. i can understand if some feel rose is better thats there opinion but when they try to put down westbrook to make there opinion seem right then thats just hating. also the defenders stay with there man against okc the same amount that they do against other teams. thats an excuse. no one said any of this when okc wasnt that good last year with basically the same players on the team. rose fans think hes more athletic westbrook fans think its westbrook. no matter what any of us say its still only a opinion not fact. both players have there moments of being wild and out of control. ive seen both do it. and both have played more calm at times. one reason i like westbrook better is because his poin guard thing is new to him unlike rose or other pg's he didnt play it in hs or college and this is his second year playing it in the nba and hes in the discussion with other allstar talent pg. that tells you his potential is very very high. just like a young guy playing in the nba and getting compared to older allstars. i put this debate in the catagory of
paul vs dwill
mayo vs gordan
lebron vs kobe
Westbrook is a nice pg and will be one of the top in the league, I personaly like Rose better right now as a player.
He is a more of a pg and as of late he is playing better than Westbrook. For most of the year Westbrook was playing better.
But as far as being more explosive it is Rose, he doesn't show it has much but when he does wow.
For example when he dunked on Nash on the break and when he dunked on Oden this year. Go back and watch from his high school days until now and do the same with Westbrook and judge for yourself.
Don't get me wrong Westbrook is explosive and may end up better than Rose as a player.
IMO he wont, but it depends on who works the hardest they are that close.
This is one of the reason basketball is so great, it will be fun to watch these to players grow and see which one gets better through out their careers.
First of all... I like Westbrook... I think he has the potential to be a first team defender at point guard. I just don't like him better than Rose. I've never "put him down" to make my opinion seem right. It's my opinion. I don't have to make it seem right! Are you putting Rose down by discrediting his dunk because he dunked on another guard?
The proof is in the pudding. The tale of the tape doesn't lie. Rose is more athletic. He just doesn't play the same style of game that Westbrook plays. You can't knock Rose for that. Eric Gordon is the same way. He chooses to play below the rim and through contact. Westbrook is an elite level athlete, but there are differences between he and Rose. Rose is a notch above.
Rose is also the better player and point guard. I don't see how you can make it like they're equally wild and out of control lol. Westbrook is WAY more out of control than Rose... He doesn't make as great of decisions with the ball and he's turnover proned. Westbrook still shoots below 40 percent. Even his shot selection is questionable. Rose is in the high 40's. Rose finishes better through contact at the rim AND he can shoot better.
Rose is better. He was better in college, which is why he was the number one pick, and he's better now. You can talk about the potential stuff all you want, but it's not like Rose is going to be standing still as Westbrook gets better. People aren't talking about it, but Rose's defense has improved.
A lot of people smelled blood and jumped on Rose when he wasn't playing well. Said he didn't have killer instinct. Look at what he's done the last two months. How many clutch baskets and big shots has he taken AND made without hesitation? Give the man his due. The haters have disappeared. I think he's the 7th or 8th best point guard in the NBA right now.
youre opinion just like us westbrook fans have our opinion
You should be proud Quincey... You're the only hater still standing lol.
lol..how am i a hater i think rose is good and athletic. i just think westbrook is better. hating is if i was putting rose doewn. that smy opinion.. some say rose others say westbrook. hell my brother says rose and my cousin says westbrrok.. opinions..you can say what ever you want but its still and opinion..just deal with it and dont get so butt hurt
Butt hurt lol. Naw... That's how you get when somebody talks about Bynum or the Lakers!
