  1. Harden
  2. Leonard
  3. Westbrook

With an average team, great talent, and a refusal to share the ball, it’s not surprising that Westbrook averaged a triple-double. Impressive, but not surprising. Harden and Lebron could’ve done it too if they had tried. Westbrook, despite his assist total, didn’t make his team better. I don’t mean wins. I mean, despite making the playoffs, does anyone see OKC winning anything? Houston could possibly win the West. That’s not because Harden could get triple doubles and is a great player, but because he made the rest of his team better. In a new system, with a new coach, Harden changed AND improved his game to make his team a contender. That’s more impressive.
