We have two players available for your selection. We'll call them Player A and Player B. Both were on teams that won 50+ games last year. Both were on teams that made the postseason. Both currently play on teams that have another superstar on them. Both players are currently their team's second-leading scorers. And both players primarily play point guard for their teams and are high-quality defenders.
Player A Player B
PPG 23.3 22.1
FG Pct 44.8 44.6
RPG 5.5 5.8
APG 8.1 8.9
Who would you rather have?
How about now?
We tell you who these players are ... after the jump.
Player A is Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Player B is LeBron James of the Miami Heat.
The point is that Russell Westbrook is quietly having an outstanding season. While he is overshadowed by Kevin Durant, Westbrook’s numbers this season have been terrific.
