Kevin Love knows Russell Westbrook better than most. They’re good friends, and former college roommates. And I thought Love said something interesting here: Westbrook’s selfish. Because he needs to be. I’ve always said Westbrook wasn’t selfish and that ball-hog talk was all junk.
But I get what Love means. Westbrook’s not selfish in the sense he wants to call his own number for the glory, but selfish because his talents and abilities force him to be. It would like not letting Paul McCartney sing instead of John Lennon — at some point Westbrook needs a solo because it makes the whole better.
