At 25-14, the Oklahoma City Thunder currently hold one of the NBA’s best records. Their success can mainly be attributed to the superstar duo of Russell Westbrook and Paul George, who are combining for almost 48 points per game. However, with George now leading the team in scoring and Westbrook shooting extremely inefficiently this season, how have these two ultra-competitors established a symbiotic relationship while maintaining a team-first mentality?
Despite the team’s solid play up to this point, it can be said that Russell Westbrook is having a disappointing season for his standards. After missing eight of the team’s first 15 games with an ankle injury, the 30-year-old guard has had some of the worst shooting marks in his career.
