Colin Cowherd: “Russell Westbrook is now 32 and has played in over 1,000 games. He is not as relentless as he used to be. He admitted that some nights he just does not have ‘juice’… Westbrook is Steve Francis, Allen Iverson, Stephen Marbury, and Derrick Rose, and it ALWAYS ends poorly. For hyper-athletic point guards who aren’t natural shooters, who tend to be ‘shoot-first, ask questions later’ it always ends poorly. Steve Francis at the end played in China. So did Marbury and Iverson was in Turkey. Derrick Rose has been on six teams in five years, and the Knicks twice. It ALWAYS ends the exact same way. The great players admire him now but don’t want to play with him, and the two teams interested in him – Washington and the Knicks – are losing teams the last 15 years.” (Full Video Above)
