On this edition of the Phil Naessens Show, I get the privilege of providing the opening and closing act. First up, we discuss the Thunder's current losing streak and whether or not it will end their playoff hopes, and even whether that is a good thing. We close out the show by analogizing Russell Westbrook with Allen Iverson.

From Phil:

Should the Oklahoma City Thunder shut Russell Westbrook down? His usage rate is extremely high and lets face it but the Oklahoma City Thunder don’t have what it takes to beat anyone in the NBA playoffs so why bother?

Russell Westbrook is too valuable to the future of the Thunder not to mention the NBA to risk going forward with this bunch this season.

I want Russell Westbrook healthy for when he comes to the New York Knicks in 2017. Remember you heard that here first.

Also, I may or may not have applied the word "carnal" inappropriately. You be the judge!
