Did anyone watch bballbreakdown's OKC-MEM post game video?

The first 15-16 minutes are a good listen if you want to hear about OKC.

I watched all of the videos he did on the Thunder and Grizzlies series and the more I listened to coach Nick, the more I was convinced that even if the Thunder had Westbrook healthy, they were going to lose to the Grizzlies anyway because of Scott Brooks' incompetence.

I know he's talked about how he thinks Brooks is a bad coach for a while now but watching the evidence from this series specifically seemed to amplify his coaching mistakes ten fold.

He constantly ran offensive plays that put the Grizzlies defenders in the best position to help defend because their spacing remained terrible and when it made their offense completely fall apart, they just started jacking up shots. It's almost like Brooks completely underestimated how good Memphis' defense was.

And then on defense, the Thunder just didn't do the obvious things that would've helped them and basically let Memphis do the same things every game. The Grizzlies just kept taking advantage of the Thunder's obvious mistakes all series long and that's why they won in 5.

tl;dr The Thunder didn't put themselves in a position to win and they'll never win a title with Scott Brooks.

Coach Nick is a notorious Westbrook hater so of course he's going to understate the importance of Westbrook.

Yet they made the NBA Finals with him coaching. It's so easy to make sensationalist statements like "This team will never win a championship with ..." Only one team out of 30 wins a championship every year so chances are you won't be proven wrong when you make a statement like this. Simple minded folks eat stuff like this up all the time.

That guy literally goes back and forth between contemplated the best players at each position. His videos are kinda interesting and you can tell he cares a lot about the nba, but I don't particularly care for his opinions.

This is why he doesn't make a lot of prediction type videos. He tends to be wrong a lot

Not necessarily. He gives Westbrook props when props are due, he's a coach though and from a coaching perspective you have to see why he wouldn't like Westbrook. Coaches don't really like wild cards, but from what I've seen, he criticizes Westbrook when it makes sense and credits him when he does well.

True, but the way I see it he simply breaks down games from a coaching standpoint. If the team seems outclassed based on X's and O's then he usually calls it how he sees it.

Coach Nick sounds whiny when he talks. At some point I'm like "shut up and die holy ****".

Point to anyone that is the opposite. Stats and breakdowns can only go so far, luck plays a factor into which team wins. While Nick does try and present things in an objective way, his coaching preferences do show from time to time and that's only natural...he has his own philosophy.

He gives him props where it's due but how can you single him out on that? Westbrook does make a load of dumbass plays, it's not like Nick's the only one to point this out. If we were talking about any other player, their ass would be on the bench 24/7 but this is Westbrook, he can get by due to his sheer amount of talent.

bingo


that b-ball breakdown guy is human, I understand that and don't hold it against him, but his various biases are taken to such an extreme that I can never take anything he has to say seriously because of it


it's a real shame because his videos are well put together too
