In the first part of our two part series going over just about every play Russell Westbrook too part in, we analyze his decision making and give it a grade: Good, Bad, or Meh. Based on the situation, it’s certainly possible that one pull up jumper could get a “Good” while another could get a “Meh.”
For the first time, you can get a glimpse into how I perceive how a player should play. This is less about Westbrook’s point guard skills, and much more about one player on a team with four other teammates. If we don’t call him a point guard, which we shouldn’t, then we should just evaluate him on a play by play basis. That way, there is no preconceived notion of how many shots or assists a point guard should get.
