How does a team do with Westbrook as a first option?
Russell Westbrook loves to have the ball. He loves to be the man.
Having an awesome player like Kevin Durant in the team is a double-edged sword for Westbrook. It's a luxury to have him on the floor, but at the same time Kevin's star is so big that Westbrook doesn't have an opportunity to fully shine.
No disrespect to KD, but imagine he changes teams and OKC builds around Westbrook. Let's pretend he is given the absolute 'green light' to shoot, play PG, whatever.
How many points a game does he average?
What players would you surround him with? (Maybe done by trading away KD and picking up a few pieces)
How good could they be? Or does Westbrook 'suck ass'?
