Misleading Headline? "Parker says Westbrook hasn't faced PG like him yet"

I read the entire article twice, and don't think TP issued that kind of direct challenge exactly... and the writer did say explicitly that he wasn't trash talking. TP did say: ''We're definitely going to go at him. It's not going to be like Dallas or the Lakers,'' Parker said Wednesday, referring to the first two teams the Oklahoma City Thunder demolished in the playoffs. ''Their point guards are not as aggressive. It's going to be a little bit different. We're going to go at him.'' ------ My impression is that TP is saying that it'll be different for Westbrook to face the Spurs, not just him personally. And I'm thinking that the writer is making the all-too-common mistake of thinking of the game in terms of individual mano-a-mano contests instead of team-vs-team ones. In other words, it would be more accurate if the title was "Parker say Westbrook hasn't faced a team like the Spurs yet." What do you think?
