Default Westbrook has played with two players having their best NBA season

KD & PG

Meanwhile, Lebron has played with zero. What does that tell you about Westbrook?

OP has never heard of Kyrie Irving, Mo Williams, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, or the litany of other players who had career years with LeBron

I forgot to add MVP candidates to the title. The narrative has been that Westbrook can't play with other great players because he's too much of ball-hog and stat padder. But KD his MVP season in OKC, and PG3 is in the race this year.

Meanwhile, Wade, Bosh and Love never had those kinds of seasons next to Lebron, who's held up as the opposite of Westbrook. Kyrie is borderline.

So maybe Westbrook isn't all that bad to play with?

Well the problem is, LeBron has never played with any MVP candidates.

Maybe Wade for one season? And that's really it. Let's not pretend that current PG and KD are comparable to Love and Bosh. Come on man.

Damn, good call.

Pretty counter-intuitive to OP's argument.
