The Basketball God’s sent a blessing to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Thunder acquired four time All-Star Paul George from the Indiana Pacers for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. The Newly minted MVP Russell Westbrook now has a more than capable team to get the job done in OKC.
The only question is, will Russell Westbrook pass the damn ball?
Paul George averaged 23.7 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 3 assist per game. George did not come to Oklahoma City to be an innocent bystander, He came to win. Paul George cannot be reduced to a spot up shooter because Westbrook continues to play 100mph. Once again we find ourselves asking will Russell Westbrook sacrifice his own riches for the betterment of his own team.
This cannot be the Kevin Durant soap opera part two. Russell cannot add evidence to the notion that he is a ball hog, only out to soak up the spotlight for himself at the expense of others. Its simple quite frankly. At least for one year, Russell Westbrook must let Paul George be batman while he is the ultimate robin. That details more rebounding , more assisting, more stealing, more dirty work for westbrook, while Paul george is the silky smooth scorer that he has always been.
This could be a formidable team in the jam packed Western Conference. Obviously, a lot of this hinges on the shoulders of Mr. Triple Double himself. Mr. Westbrook, Do you want to win or do you want the numbers, that is the question.
Legacy is on the line this season for Russell Westbrook. Its all about making adjustments and being unselfish for the reigning most valuable player.
