Easily for me. Dude is in beast mode this season.

Just had 47/7/6 in OT win over Nuggets tonight.

33/8/5 in the previous game to end Cavalier's winning streak last game.

Averaging 24.5 pts, 4 assists, 5.3 rebounds, 1.1 blocks and 1.8 steals per game at 48.5%(FG), 44.4%(3P) and 77.3%(FT).

Having his breakout season at 25.

Clearly. So fun to watch. Explosive, shooting/off the dribble.

Hard to see a 5 time All Star like PG getting a 2nd MIP Award.

If not for Victor's play the 2nd half of the PG to OKC trade there would be more talk about the other half of the Pacers return package Domas Sabonis, who is giving the Pacers 12.1 ppg and 8.5 rpg , 54% fg shooting 79% ft shooting and 2 assist in 25 minutes a night off the bench, after a very disappointing Rookie year in OKC. He was badly misused in OKC.

With Oladipo and the 2-21 yr old bigs Turner (NBA leader in blocks per game) and Sabonis the Pacers have 3 solid building blocks.

Oladipo should be a lock for the All Star, and should make all the experts rethink their comments of the Pacers getting nothing for PG

Thunder dealt someone with equal impact to Paul George, and likely won't even have Paul George in a year.

Every one keeps minimizing Domas Sabonis a solid near double/double 21 yr old off the bench. In truth the Pacers stole Oladipo and Sabonis in that trade

More like the most freed up player. Once he got away from a guy dominating the ball at a historic level.

I know you're making a joke, but, this was my first thought. I think it says plenty about what it's like to play with Russ. I still stand behind Durant knowing he had to leave RWB if he ever wanted to reach the next level. Whether he needed to join the Warriors is another topic. But, I've never blamed him at all for wanting away from Westbrook (and okc by association).

Westbrook is that rarest of stars that manage to sublimate their teammates into scrubs while racking up assists in the name of "making his teammates better". Never seen anything like it.

2013 draft was considered weak. But it has turned out to be pretty good slowly. Already has a franchise player in Giannis. Oladipo starting to justify his #2 selection. CJ has emerged in recent years, Gobert and Adams great rim protectors. Schroder has good potential as well. Otto shooting great and improving every year.

OKC continues to eff up. PG13 ain't resigning, and Victor O blowing up in Indiana.

Absolutely. And it's no joke. I'm like 99% convinced PG13 will be a laker next year and do well.

And agree about KD.

Since when did LG get invaded by the ghost of Kevin Arnovitz? So much of the RW bashing reads like recycled post-Shaq Kobe hate.

Imagine if the Cavs had Dipo instead of Anthony Bennett? Would they have traded Dipo/Wiggins for Love?

Its hard to imagine Kobe failing to win if he was surrounded by as much talent as Westbrook has been surrounded with in his career.
