perhaps english is your second language numerone? if so i understand how you thought that. my thai missus messes things up like that.

but basically the OP is saying exclude LB because it is so obvious he is the best....

numerone, for example, when i was at school teaching, a teacher said to a child (for whom english was a second language), 'would you like to pass me the chalk?'.

to which the child replied, 'no'.

but to those in the know, the teacher wasn't actually giving the child a choice...

you with me?

it reads you can exclude (lj) because not everyone would! now it would be different if everyone had responded lebron and left it at that with no 2nd place but they didn't.

Report pokeron February 12, 2013 8:52 AM GMT
sometimes in the english language, if you take it literally it seems as tho he's giving you a choice. by saying 'you can' he is actually saying, 'exclude lebron'. he is actually saying don't mention lebron coz its obvious. capiche?

the english language is idiotic. that's all i'm saying. i was simply trying to clear that up for you.

the english language is a very divisive language where it can make people seem to disagree when in fact they don't.

read my school example again without getting defensive and see how it is the same thing. peace man.
Report pokeron February 12, 2013 9:01 AM GMT
i'll try one last time. in my school example the teacher says, 'would you like to pass me the chalk?

if you take it literally, the child has a choice right? he can say, 'no i would not like to pass you the chalk'.

but we all know the teacher is not actually giving him the choice. the teacher would like the chalk passed end of story.

so when the OP says, 'you can exclude lb', he/she is not really giving you the choice of can or cannot. the OP is saying 'excluding lebron'. the use of the word 'can' is a misnomer....

like beaniash implied, OP got lazy with his thread title that's all...

peace dude.
Report numer0ne February 12, 2013 10:47 AM GMT
Well i hope you didn't teach logic.. the 'can' is predicated on that person agreeing that lb is the best, therefore 'can' IS meant as a choice!

Admit it you 4n4lly retentive fool you've made a mistake! Now don't embarrass yourself further, apologise Happy

i wrote that because i wanted to exclude lb but in the way that if someone really has a need to include him and be a...Wink lol but its read like u will exclude(im not obviously native speaker but maybe i learned  more grammar than natives)

westbrook is tremendous player often misread by people because he is not falling into the typical point guard role also he is making difficult plays sometimes and some people feels its a waste but the scheme in his team is he is looking for open looks in quick transition or forcing ball himself and looking for KD and THEN he takes responsibility of making a shot or drive when there no other options as hes the best in this team one on one and double teamed and as point guard has ball in his hands most often. this is great advantage for okc team not disadvantage that point guard can make plays, it win championships, like tony parker role for example or lbj who likes to play point guard and he does it all the time

stats: 7th in scoring 22.5 pprg,

5th in assist  8.1 assist per game (taking this stat as a main pg stat he is in the top where he dominates others like paul and rondo  in scoring

3rd in nba steals  2 prgame


5.2 rebounds which is huge for pg best in offensive rebounds of pgs


he got some 3.5 turnovers but he is an impact player

if someone saying he is not top 10 player in nba ,person doesnt know this game, wesbrook has KD in this team and still has leading stats in whole nba apart of one players teams like lbj in miami or harden in houston

this kind of player is most important puzzle in the team, there is few great players as well with superb stats all around like lbj who dominates of course, kd is comparable more effective in some parts of the game when ball is dished to him(mostly by westbrook)_ but RW is more effective in pressure game as i wrote at the beginning

harden is very good all around player as well, melo is a shooter mainly, kobe ,,k irving stands out

maybe i exaggerated
little bit but for me westbrook is top player in nba one of very few and is as important in okc as KD or even bit more for me

Westbrook has the LOWEST basketball IQ in the league. Derrick Rose is much better than Westbrook, so is chris paul. Westbrook isn't even the best player on his team lol.

It's actually annoying that people forget about Rose just because he's injured, guy shuts down every PG he plays and no PG can guard him. Westbrook isn't even the guy teams try and shut down, they all look to double on Durant and shut him down and Westbrook still can't put up amazing numbers. RW is a good player though and has amazing athleticism, but its spoilt by being so dumb making many wrong decisions/bad shots

rose is injured he is not playing forget it. its all bullshit u saying about westbrook, of course they want tho shut him down but its impossible, its easier to shut down durant who relies on good pass on the run or one on one  or open look, hes not that good whe doubled but its more difficult to do this if you have to double wesbrook

can't put up amazing numbers

Kobe's clutch performance is a myth created mostly on the sheer volume of clutch shot he's taking and of course people mostly remembering the awesome makes and not the many misses.

Kobe is not a bad player, far from it, but in clutch situations he's making it far too easy for the defense because absolutely everybody knows that he's the one taking the final shot.
Report edy May 13, 2013 8:02 PM BST
That's one of the other things so amazing with LeBron. People say "oooh, he's a ****, he's scaaaaaaaaared to take the final shot".

He's not. He just doesn't play hero ball at every opportunity and is actually looking to make the right basketball play,  create and find the open man in crunch time.

I love Melo. He's my man, my idol, my favourite player by a distance but even I can see that LeBron is the best player in the league. It's not even close. He's so far ahead, he looks like a video game most nights. I honestly believe he's better than Jordan and his legacy will put him in that conversation. My top five is 1. LeBron 2. KD 3. Melo 4. CP3 5. Westbrook.

LeBron is only 28, give him time. Jordan took 7 years to get his first, after that the Bulls dominated, but not just because of him. D-Wade isn't going to be much help this year anyway and they'll still win it.

last year like always the west was much deeper than the east however it did look a bit top heavy.  This season i think the west is even stronger and is legitimately deep.  Spurs are better, Clips are better, Rockets are better and if OKC stay healthy they should win a lot of games this season too.
