On Sunday night, Russell Westbrook showed the world that he doesn't need Kevin Durant's help to be successful. He scored 41 points during the 2015 NBA All-Star Game and, at times, looked absolutely unstoppable. So during an interview yesterday, Dan Patrick asked the Thunder point guard if there's a part of him that "wants to go out like James Harden" and prove that he can win in the NBA without KD. And Westbrook was quick to shoot down the suggestion.
"Not at all," he said. "I love winning. Kevin's one of the best players in the world, man, and I love my position now. I think over the past maybe four or five years, only maybe two teams has won more games than us…I don't think it gets too much better than that. You can be on your own and win a few games and then go home in the summer. But I'd rather win games and have a chance to win the championship every year."
You can hear Westbrook talk about playing with Durant at the 5:30 mark of the video above. During his interview with Patrick, Westbrook also discussed his lack of a nickname, where he plans on keeping his NBA All-Star MVP award, and what KD keeps in his man cave.
