Ok, this conversation started today and I'm going to caveat it a little here. We know based on this season that D. Rose is definitely going to get the MVP and has pushed his Bulls team to the 60 win mark which hasn't been done since a guy wearing his own trademarked sneakers and rocking the '23' lived in the United Center (and also the Chicago Stadium), so we can say that Derrick Rose is better than Westbrook, but can we say that Rose is better than Westbrook by far? I'll start with the numbers and just the numbers.
Derrick Rose - 25.1 Points per game, 7.8 Assists per game, 4.1 rebounds per game; probable MVP, 60 Win team.
Russell Westbrook - 21.8 Points per game, 8.2 Assists per game, 4.6 rebounds per game; 54 Win team.
So for the sake of the argument, I'm saying that these guys are closer than most people think as far as what they bring to the table.
With that, let the games begin. Who do you think is better, and why?!?!?
