We know coaches never want to disrespect their current players but it’s always interesting to see such high praise they have for their players. The latest case has Scott Brooks saying Russell Westbrook is the best point guard in the league. While I am sure most of you are sitting here going what is Brooks talking about, Brooks gave his reasoning why he thinks this:
“I believe Russell is the best point guard in basketball,” Brooks stated, unprompted. “That’s happened over time. I’ve seen Russell every practice, every game, every film session and he’s really put a lot of time into being the best point guard in basketball.”
Time and effort is always great is there anything else that makes the best point guard in the league?
Russell Westbrook replied to Brooks comments as Westbrook agreed with him:
“I do,” he said. “I’m very honored to hear him say that, but that’s how I feel. I mean, I don’t know what to tell you…”
“I’ve felt that since I got in the league,” Westbrook said. “I mean, that’s my mindset. As a rookie, I came in and I felt like I was the best player on the floor every time I stepped on the floor. That’s just my mindset, that’s the way I’ve played since college. It’s not just this year or last year. It’s how I think when I get on the basketball floor.”
