OKC Can't Win If Russell Westbrook Don't Pass the Ball

I say it all the time on twitter "Number 0 has to pass the ball for OKC to win" and I stand by that. Russel shoots to damn much. You know it and I know it, the man has to pass. Number 0 is a PG and if you don't know what a PG is let me tell you. A point guard has perhaps the most specialized role of any position – essentially, he is expected to run the team's offense by controlling the ball and making sure that it gets to the right players at the right time. Above all, the point guard must totally understand and accept his or her coach's game plan; in this way, the position can be compared to a quarterback in football. Above all a point guard's job is to create scoring opportunities for his team. Let me say that again a point guard's job is to create scoring opportunities for his team. 

Now I ask you what do number 0 do ? Shoot,shoot and shoot. It's like he's the only person on the court at times. Comes down stand there and then drives to the basket. Maybe he forgets he's not playing one on one. The ball must flow around the team, and it's the point job to do that. IT's a fact that when number 0 take less shots, which means he pass more they win the game. You have KD and James harden that can shoot and 2 great post players that can score, pass the ball. I can see if he was on a team like D.Rose where Rose has to take 26 shots a game but number 0 don't. On top of that he miss 16 of them. I'm kinda ranting right now sorry. All I'm trying to say is that number 0 can be one of the best PG's in the game but he must pick and choice when to attack and when to pass. The last couple of plays in the game last night he made the right plays. Now to just do that all game long. Magic said that was the worst showing by a Pg in finals history, hope Sunday things will be better. Good Luck Number 0.
