Can he finally get the credit he deserves? No one in history has put up 20-20 games like him. The most all-around player the NBA has ever seen.
I respect the hell out of Westbrook, and I don't know why people don't like him, even though he is cocky (who isnt?), he is nice, genuine, and according to all sources, a great teammate and person.
But... just because he can rack up assists, rebounds, and points, it doesn't make him all around. He has limited portability and scalability. I get what you are saying, but my definition of all round games including the ability to play off ball, to space the floor, to cut, to be more than competent on defense and etc. His offensive game is also not diverse enough. But ya, definitely one of the greatest motor in the history of the game, and a worker. This was an awesome game for him, went to the basket aggressively, took less than 10 shots, no 3s attempted, and pushed the transition every time.
