Was he really better?
T-Mac didn't play with a Westbrook distracting defenses with elite penetration and finishing abilities. Mac also played in a more difficult defensive era, where touch calls didn't get him on the line for a gifted 4 - 8 ppg on free throws, yet still averaged 4 more ppg. That's kind of significant difference. So yes, it is more impressive when Darrell Armstrong is your second best player as opposed to Russell Westbrook.
