DraftExpress: No one talked about Dwyane Wade or Russell Westbrook until they were well into their college career, but that doesn't seem to have hurt them

Deuce Bello is clearly the best athlete on the floor right now, and I'm not even sure that its even close. The next Russell Westbrook?

I can't wait to see how Rubio, Llull and the rest of Spain's guards are able to deal w/the size, length & athleticism of Russell Westbrook.

DX's Joe Treutlein (@hoopdata) suggests we change our John Wall NBA comparison from Derrick Rose to Russell Westbrook. Inclined to agree...

Love Russell Westbrook as an NBA player, but style of play isn't great for FIBA. Not a good enough shooter/decision maker. Lacks experience.
