Westbrook had a historic 2016-17 regular season for the Thunder. He won because of course he did; if Kendrick Perkins averaged a triple-double he'd win MVP too, even though a team featuring Kendrick Perkins averaging a triple-double would likely not win a game. Not because of Westbrook but because this is a team that's won the championship two of the last three years and has been historically awesome.
"I mean think how easy that would be", ESPN's Ryen Russillo replied.
The Golden State Warriors clearly have that personnel, and a new book hints that they didn't fear Russ at all.
"Jack McCallum's new book about the Warriors has a bunch of kind of anonymous Warriors talking about Russ and how they don't fear Russ. How Russ's style of play is so easy for them to defend it's like cake to them", Lowe said, as transcribed by Chris Barnewall of CBS Sports.

"I've talked to the Warriors about his kind of stuff", Lowe continued. "What's in Jack's book is 100 percent what they say when you ask them about Russ". After games, they've boasted about how Westbrook played right into their hands.
Although keying in on Westbrook might have been "easy" for the Warriors past year, it might be a lot tougher for them to contain him now that both Paul George and Carmelo Anthony are in Oklahoma City and will command respect on the offensive end. Three of those games included Kevin Durant in a Thunder uniform. Heading into this season, however, Russ has some All-Star help in the form of Paul George and Carmelo Anthony, which should make the matchups between OKC and GSW that much more exciting.
But it'll be really interesting to find out. Is a season of playing some of the best individual basketball in recent memory, for better and worse, really going to have taught him the value of relying on star teammates?
