      I think if pg wasn't there they wouldn't be anything to talk about as normal. Paul George is the difference maker he would be anywhere he went.

        if rw trusts pg13 they will go far but if he chooses to be his ole ball hog self they will fail i've watched too many games where he puts up big numbers and they still lose

                  Paul George is injured right now he missed some games. So Westbrook has to take up the slack. I think Max is right because OKC needs westbrook to play well to win, we know pg will do so. Fact is Westbrook just needs to stop shooting threes and leave that to Furguson, PG and Grant. Take midrange, drive to the basket and pass the ball. if he does that he will be the one that helps the thunder win. But i dont see them getting passed the second round. why? cus if they didnt win with durant and ibaka, what makes you think they can with only pg and adams? Im a PG13 fan.

                    Westbrook may be the key to success if he's a choreographer. OKC needs PG!

                      BS ... both of them are important to one another and to the teams success. Don't try to pin them against each other by reporting something as sensational and stupid as this.

                        Why do we have to choose one or the other and separate them? They are both great and neither of them will succeed without the other. They are the best duo in the league and if they can keep it together they are a threat to GS

                            If Russell Westbrook would just stay in his damn lane and stop shooting the ball, his team would be better and probably have a Chip.

                                    This season proves Russ is a perfect #2 option, look at what he did with KD. When he has to over extend, it decreases his value

                                          Im not even an OKC fan but I think it would be nice if they can make it to the Finals this year -I think Russell and even PG deserve it.

                                          I just wish he´d tighten up on that off court presentation thou -ya boy be looking like he was dressed by a color blind stylist! lol

                                              Westbrook been beastmode this year. He switch his game up when everybody said he couldn't.

                                                        Paul George is the GOAT...everybody talking about how he wasnt great in Indiana yall forgetting he was giving the big three in Miami a run for their money almost by his damn self, then he got injured and is showing wjat he could be been all along

                                                              Russ is the heart of the team. PG is a great player but he doesn’t have the same energy and drive to win a game as Westbrook does

                                                                Both players are the key, I want Westbrook to be the guy who starts my offense and who involves everyone and gets the team going, but i want George to be the one who takes the last shot, PG the one to takeover the game when its on the line. So both are really important.

                                                                • Roberto Febus

                                                                  And if PG should go down with an injury, or if the other team wont even let him touch the ball to take the last shot, then I want Westbrook to play smart ball, and attack the rim like all OKC fans know he can do, he attacks the rim, the majority of the time a perimeter shooter will open up. That's why as an OKC fan, both are hugely important to the success of the team.

They only doing this so okc can lose game and so Paul George can get snub for his rewards like he should have. Better then Harden and KD whos not even a part of Okc and we know this .
