Neither can really shoot

NBA Quiz Questions says:

How can anyone claim that Westbrook is a competitor who gives it his all when he doesn't even play defense?

Ali Rasool says:

People are still relying on LeBron to drag them to the playoffs. Those days are over. Asking him to be the role model on both defense and offense is a tough one unless others carry the scoring load to allow him to keep the necessary energy to play a whole game playing great defense. Let's not forget his age and physical mileage so far. It's time for others to help make it easier on him to coast on defense or play less minutes or score a lot less. He can't bear it all at this stage of his career. That is reality unless we want to guarantee an injury for him instead of reserving him for the scoring punch that will be needed at times in many of the games where everyone goes cold. He will know how to get you a bucket with his passing or his scoring. Tiring him out will reduce that possibility.

Lee says:

This was such a good signing. Bev will take the Caruso role. Bev is probably a worse defender at this stage but he's a better 3pt shooter, a vocal leader, and an enforcer. He's a perfect role player for Lebron. We also have a stretch 5 now so Russ can attack the basket more. I have high hopes, LFG.
