Honest Westbrook Review

Written by yamez

First of all, I would like to apologize to everyone that got screwed over by Ronnie again. They should release another batch but it's probably not gonna happen. #BlameRonnie

This year on MyTeam was alright for me, and up until now, I had been using the 95 Rondo card. He could get by his guy, create offense with the pick and roll, but his scoring was very limited. This card was blessed upon me from the 2k gods and absolutely changed my team big time.

Bought for: Locker Code on Twitter

Strengths:

Scoring- Inside, outside, doesn't f*cking matter with this guy. I always play 2k with a balanced team, and I try to use all my pieces to score evenly across the board. When I got Russell Westbrook, that changed. This guy is a machine. I currently average 30.2 ppg with Westbrook. He is a killer.

Playmaking- With HOF dimer, nearly every open look comes via a pass from Russell. Once He gets past his defender, it is an automatic bucket. My strategy is to have at least two shooters on the court with this card so he can kick it out if an opponent comes to help.

Rebounds- HOF Hustle Rebounder is no joke. Russell never fails to surprise me when he leaps over power forwards on a consistent basis to grab the rebound. He won't outrebound the legend Yao Ming, but he will do way better than any other guard except maybe Magic.

Weaknesses:

Fatigue- I wish I could play Westbrook the entire game. When he gets subbed out, there's a noticeable difference. He has great stamina so he can play 3 quarters easily, but yeah. Most people quit before he's subbed out anyways...

Recommended Strategy: Build around Russell Westbrook. Get a big for pick and rolls, and surround with shooters.

Use if: You like winning.

Don't use if: Ronnie fcked you over. Or if you're a Golden State bandwagoning btch that only plays 2k so he can shoot threes with Steph Curry.

Bottom Line: I can't believe I got a card this amazing for free. MVP.
