far superior defensively, Westphal was as good offensively as Maravich
an Gervin in the late 70s when he was playing in Phoenix before his
foot problems began.
An interesting trade - Westphal, the great offensive player, for
Johnson the great defensive player. Obviously Phoenix got the better
of the deal with Westphal's injury in Seattle, but up to that point I'd
consider Westy superior.
