    Wrong question. The real question is. Are they better together now then with Melo? They are. The Thunder are a more complete team now that PG is efficient. Westbrook is good at getting the team involved.He can pop off sometimes, but he pops off every game in intensity and that bleeds through the team

    +Solomon Antoine nah bron got harden beat on d. Harden the absolute worst. Saw him stand under the basket alone watch a guy run right by him for a layup, he didnt even jump or move his arms. Than throws his arms up at his teammates (halfway down court) like they are bitches

  • Aren Babachanian (Feb 11, 2019)

    Wtf is this question? None can win without the other. PG has been better this season but they are both equally VALUABLE.

  • Aren Babachanian (1 day ago)

    Kile Whittington of course not, the question was: who do u keep if ur OKC, Russ or PG. the reason above is why I’d pick pg right now if I was OKC.

  • Kile Whittington (4 days ago)

    +Aren Babachanian Westbrook is coming off a serious knee injury witch is very serious for a mvp Pg and he's still scoring a triple double.

    Russ is not robin neither is Paul honestly you are looking at Batman and Superman

    The whole team is multiple man's copies: from first string to last are all important or non is of worth.

  • j0epark1 (Feb 11, 2019)

    So we just gonna ignore Westbrook had KNEE surgery RIGHT BEFORE the season started and he's STILL averaging a Triple Double??? Max is a bafoon and Westbrook is a top 25 player of all time.

  • Lebron Traveled (1 day ago)

    Tommywood bro you so full of shit. He grabs the rebound and pushes hard 68% of the time. There are literal stats for this shit man

  • Lebron Traveled (1 day ago)

    I can’t believe all of the disrespect in this thread. Just goes to show there’s still dumb ass fans out there. Westbrook is easily top 25. And that’s sandbagging tbh

  • iRated Gaming (Feb 11, 2019)

    Stop trying to separate them. They are absolutely BALLING right now. Together
