    Westbrook has become the John Stockton of the NBA today. Racking up Assists like a machine. But sadly, will never win a championship because of poor shooting % (though Stockton was no where near as bad as him), poor shot selection for himself and frankly ego, the same ego that drove Durant out. His ego right now is focusing on filling the stat sheet for another triple double season, which has become too easy for him.

    People hate Westbrook so much that they hate on him for getting triple doubles, and call him a ball hog even when he averages 10+ in that status. And it’s not like he’s the first drive and dump passer. And he’s not the first one that was great, not everyone can and will-or even should be a Curry type of guy who doesn’t need the ball. Give Westbrook his second all star, let OKC steal Kevin Love, and watch them win the title

    He’s Basically A Small Lebron, Shooting Troubles, But Can Give You Everything Else, Last Year His Triple Doubles Seemed Like Stat Padding, Now He’s Becoming A Full Team Player, Russell Westbrook Never Gets The Loves He Deserve, OKC Should Sign Swaggy P Since He’s Been Waived By Denver And See If They Can Trade For A Scoring Big Man Who Is Intimidating On Defense

    Pierce is right, Russ has lost confidence. His offense has been horrible and even he knows that he doesn't need to be shooting everything. He is only taking one shot less than last season and is still shooting a stupid 3s. Lets not get ahead of ourselves, but amazing performance.

    If he keeps on sharing the ball he can be the best player on a championship team. I love seeing his game develop into a true leading point guard. Also other players watching him do this will make them want to play with him.

    Russ had 24 assists. The thunder made 58 FGs. The rest of the entire team had 9 total assists. 5 players had 1 and Dennis had 4. Yea, and Russ had 24....does anyone realize that a true unselfish player is a play that won’t show up in the box score? An assist in the box score is benefitting Russ indicually. An unselfish player makes the right pass always, which leads to better shots, which leads to a lower indivual assist rate but a much higher team assist rate. Russ is #1 in the NbA in assist rate, the thunder as a team are bottom 3. Russ tries to do everything and anything that will show up on the box score. An assist isn’t always unselfish if the player making the pass WANTS the assist more than just getting the best shot for his team. It’s fucking simple. And I don’t have a dog in the fight. It’s just the truth

    “I know overtime was a little bit differnt...” but they just don’t want to talk about that hahaha. Russ has had 20 assists games before, and lots of 15 plus assist games. But his issue is hero ball in the crunch time when he always reverts back to his old habits. He has had games here or there where it looks like he’s maturing, but he always reverts back. So why are we making such a big deal about a game where he got lots of assists, but failed when it mattered ?

      +Pat L AD isn't a "stat stuffer" it's just that most of the time they need him to takover to win games. Of course he does have help with jrue holiday and randle, but the nuggets team is better overall. But team sucess doesn't account for individual sucess. AD is better the better player, jokic is just simply having a better season.

      +Walter Johnson idk lebron is still the best player, but with his injury i don't know if at the end of the season he would have had one of the best seasons out of everyone in the nba. The all nba team is a regular season mvp after all. If lebron comes back and plays better then how he played before then he is easily a all nba selection, however if he comes back and plays ok, or even worst then i don't know if he wins. Knowing how good lebron is, i wouldn't be suprise he he comes back and plays at superstar lebron level again.
