I swear this wasn’t the plan. I didn’t decide prior to the season that Player of the Week had to be a point guard. But for the fourth straight week, a point guard has taken my pick.

This time it’s Russell Westbrook. Wait a minute. Wasn’t this was supposed to be KD’s year?

Strangely enough, the strong pre-season favorite for League MVP has been being outplayed at times by one of his own teammates. With Durant missing games last week, Westbrook came through with strong performances, including 31 points, six assists, four rebounds and two steals against Boston.

Can Westbrook keep up the pace he’s set for the rest of the season?
