OKC don't have anybody above average in the low post. He can't too many AST off Durant's playmaking ability.
You base numbers on their peers and the overall league, not some made-up fantasy numbers. 8.7 APG is solid!!!!
I know where he's at. It is unfair to compare his assist to rondo/cp. But ranking number 4 means very little when the margin from 4 to 1 is four more assist a game. Westbrook draws a lot of attention, I'm sure we can agree on that. He should use that to his advantage to set up other players. His athleticism can only take him so far. It's sad but it might take an injury for him to NEED to average more assist. Hopefully DRose comes back more passive and a more balanced game to compare to Westbrook.
