It’s remains a mystery to me why so many sportswriters and broadcasters continue to talk about how Russell Westbrook has to do it all because he has so few capable teammates.

That is just plain silly. As I’ve written before, there are probably ten NBA teams that would trade rosters with OKC right now (or even before the recent trade).

OKC has made a decision to let Russell “do it all.” OKC has plenty of other options when it comes to executing its offense. OKC has chosen to turn Russell lose. That does not mean that there was/is no other approach.
