The Most Valuable Players in the NBA Right Now

5. Russell Westbrook

Team: Oklahoma City Thunder
Stats: 22.6 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 8.1 APG, 1.9 SPG
Salary: $13,668,793

It could be difficult to play second fiddle to one of the best players in the NBA right now, but Russell Westbrook does pretty well for himself. Averaging 22.8 points and 8.1 assists per game, Westbrook is showing the all-around point guard talent that has made him and Kevin Durant one of, if not, the best duos in the league today. Oh, and don't underestimate Russell's offensive talents, did you see his performance against the Heat in Game 4 of the 2012 NBA Finals? Without Russ, we don't know where OKC would be. He can score when needed and can lockdown the best perimeter player on the floor.
