OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Thunder coach Scott Brooks isn't known for making bold declarations. He is not shy about Russell Westbrook.
"I believe Russell's the best point guard in basketball," Brooks said. "And that's been happening over time. I've seen Russell every practice every game every film session, and he's really put a lot of time into being the best point guard in basketball."
Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul could argue with Brooks, as could several others. But Westbrook's numbers and overall success show that the statement isn't far-fetched.
