Russell Westbrook is the most difficult player to evaluated in the history of the NBA. No one has truly found a place to put him in yet. Point Guard, shooting guard, playmaker, turnover-machine, all have been said in order to analyze his game. But Westbrook has never been one to be defined, having broken the model of what it means to be a point guard. He isn’t a point guard, he isn’t a shooting guard, he is a player that will do whatever it takes to win the game. From winning All-Star MVP in Madison Square Garden this past February, to dropping a triple-double 3 days after having facial surgery; Westbrook can’t be defined by any other label than straight baller. Thoughout the season Westbrook has had some many memorable moments on and off the court. Check out the season that Westbrook has had.
