Should Westbrook be More of a Passer?
Game 2, because the Thunder failed to complete a tremendous comeback, was Russell Westbrook’s fault. This is an old conversation. Old and tired. Old and wrong, frankly, because it always comes back to one place — that Westbrook should play more like a point guard and less like, well, himself.
Just the idea of this argument should carry little to no weight given that the Thunder are in the NBA Finals, three wins from a championship, with a core so young it almost defies the natural laws of the NBA.
And the argument, whether it’s narrowed down to Game 2 of the Finals or distributed throughout the length of his brief career, is unfair to a player who, as is, remains just as important to his team as (Dwyane) Wade is to his.
