While the Houston Rockets are in the middle of a seesaw battle with the Los Angeles Lakers, the First Take crew talked on the impact of Russell Westbrook in the second game vs LeBron James and the Lakers.

Westbrook had a tough Game 2 after the Lakers ignored his shooting from the perimeter and packed the paint to close out the game in the 4th quarter.

According to Max Kellerman, the Rockets superstar would be the best player of all-time, if he could shoot from the perimeter.

“If Russell Westbrook could really shoot, he’d be the best player of all time. We already know he can’t shoot. If this dude could stroke it from three, who would ever stop him?” Kellerman said.

Russ shot 26 percent from the field and 14 percent from the perimeter. Furthermore, he finished Game 2 with seven turnovers and just four assists.
