While it may be early in the promising guard's career, Russell Westbrook has shown that he is going to be a force to be reckoned with for years to come so long as he maintains his incredible athleticism. The Thunder point guard is not content to just set up Kevin Durant for easy buckets; he gets after it on the offensive end as well, taking over 16 shots per game as he uses his tremendous athleticism to attack the rim.

He's continued to develop a three-point shot as well, showing steady improvement each season as he begins to utilize the deep ball in completing his game. He's no slouch on defense either, using his quickness and 6'3" frame to hound opposing guards, making him one of the best defensive points in the game.
