Currently, avg 23.5 ppg 5.8 rpg 5.6 apg, he's been efficient shooting 47% from the floor. Westbrook has been the driving force of Thunder this season. Without his scoring the Thunder's offense does not work. PERIOD! Their 3rd option is Harden and he's a bench player. Westbrook would have more assists but he is dumping the ball into limited guys in the post. He's the best on ball defender on the team, I've seen him guard 1-3 with physicality. He's the best defending PG and its quite clear.

Ill even go as far as saying this much. Westbrook is playing at a higher level than Rose was last season when he won the award, except he's actually playing better on defense.

Top 5 MVP candidates

1. Lebron
2. Durant
3. Howard
4. Aldrdge (Yes Aldridge! Easily the best PF in the game pre-injury on both ends)
5. Westbrook
6. T Parker
7. D. Rose
8. Wade
9. CP3
10 Kobe/Love

    I agree with that about Russ' defense. I'm more impressed with that than his offense so far this year.

    LOL @ Aldridge Blazers are barely over .500 and CP3 @ #9 when he helping THE CLIPPERS get to the playoffs with a HIGH SEED CMON SON

    You take Aldridge off the Blazers they go on a double digit losing streak. They're a Top 5 defense primarily because of Aldrige. He is easily the best defensive PF in the L, I have him as a DPOY candidate. Guy can guard 3-5 and is excellent in pick and role and helping. Before the injury he was the most consistent player not named Lebron.

    How anyone can argue Kobe into the Top 5 are lower than maybe 8 is laughable.

    CP3's defense has been atrocious this year, no thanks on Top 3.

    westbrook makes that team go.. the durant/westbrook kobe/shaq situtation is pretty much the same exact thing....

    SHAQ was the percieved dominant force of the team like durant is now.. Kobe is what made those teams championship caliber(look @ shaq success before kobe) Shaq needed someone who could break down the defense and make his own offense.. he had that in ORL and on the Lakers before kobe was on the team.. point is after KOBE teamed with shaq shaq won rings. before kobe shaq didnt have that success with similar players...

    Westbrook is the KOBE in this.. 5 yrs from now people will see Westbrook as the better player... he already is a better player than durant..

    look @ his numbers. 23 5 5, thats playing alongside "arguably" the most dominant player in the nba..

    westbrook >> rose

    Last time I checked Durant was getting bigboyed by Artest and Tony Allen in the Playoffs... fronted and pushed to the 3 point line and 🤬 . Both are important to OKC but it seems Durant mistakes and fuckups get wept under the rug while Westbrooks gets amplified by the media

    Bingo....especially the bolded, thats why I don't get the Westbrook be ballhogging criticism. Where was the sh*t in the Memphis series? Durant couldn't get open for half of those games.

    The symptoms are definitely there for OKC to have a LA like situation. Westbrook wants to be the dude and I think Kobe was right when he said Westbrook is just like him.

    lmfaoooooo at comparing westbrook to Kobe. Clearly you 🤬 don't watch thunders games. Durant is seen as the man of that 🤬 team because he is. That team could survive w/o Russ for a short period. w/o KD? No chance. Ive never seen a PG that talented with that bad basketball IQ.
