Westbrook - for all the reasons you cited.
Right now it's either Lebron, Westbrook, or Lillard. I don't consider Simmons to be the 76ers star, it's Embiid and he's unreal.
Definitely Westbrook, he's a top 5 talent but he's 10-20 for me in terms of actual positive impact.Empty calories for the most part.I think Karl Towns is a little bit overrated as well based on his numbers and physical ability, his actual impact isn't quite in line with how good he seems to be (by the numbers he looks like the best center in the league). I think he's a guy who seems like he should be a good defender so people don't think of him as an all-offense big who is a defensive liability, but I think that's actually closer to the truth than not. He's not an entirely different type of player to Enes Kanter, is what I'm trying to say, albeit more talented. And I'd rather have Nikola Jokic.Another name I hesitate to bring up for karmic purposes is Giannis. His numbers are kookoo bananas and I know his teammates aren't the best, but I just don't fear him the way I think a true MVP caliber superstar should be feared. In the series with the Celts right now, the Celts are at a serious talent disadvantage but I'm just not that scared that Giannis is going to take over a game and win it no matter what the Celtics do to try to stop him. Guys like LeBron, Curry, Durant, Davis have those games.Now watch he'll go out and have a game like that tonight.
WestbrookDMCWallIn that order.
