And he does this at an alarming rate. Once he decides he's going to shoot it doesn't matter how many people are open he's going to chuck it up....serious tunnel vision.

I don't think people are nitpicking him to death. Westbrook will literally cost his team the game doing some of the boneheaded shit he does. I'm sorry, but you can't overlook that kind of shit.

Him attacking first thing down the court is the sole tangible form of offensive structure OKC actually has.

He needs to have better shot selection, but that does not mean not playing his game....the bad shots he takes occur when he actively attempts to feed Durant and fails.

He misses some transition pull up J's - that don't mean they're bad shots...he's up the court before everyone else...OKC's transition defense is in a good place when he takes those shots, he's probably the best in the league at it, it's a risk worth taking occasionally.

Westbrook is the type of guy who doesn't give a f*ck what the critics say. And that is what admire about him. He's fearless. Like he said, if people aren't talking about you, you're doing something wrong.

That's a negative, not a positive. A great player concerns himself entirely with what people think of him. Every step he takes should be calculated with his image and reputation in mind. If you're not popular and universally loved, how can you be a great player?

Because Durant stans can't admit he has a player of his level on his side. They have to diminish Westbrook, so they can make Durant look better. The same thing happens between Lebron fans, who says Bosh and Wade are trash.
