I'm not talking about resentment or jealousy. I'm talking about whether Westbrook's assertiveness will diminish Durant's own assertiveness in ways apart from stats. Durant doesn't strike me as a natural take-charge guy on the court. He seems like he he'll do it if nobody else can, but with Westbrook stepping forward, the peril I'm envisioning is Durant ends up stepping too far back, especially mentally, despite the fact that he's the best player on the team, and if the Thunder win a ring, it will be on his shoulders.
