I always ask locker room attendants in every NBA city to reveal who the best players are with their tips and their time. And three names are always mentioned: Steph Curry, Draymond Green ... and Russell Westbrook.

Steph Curry this year has the Kobe Award, the Magic Award, and now shooting for the Russell Award. That would be a decent 2022 collection.

This is why you never ever question an athlete's injury, as many did Kawhi Leonard and now Kevin Durant. You think KD wanted to sit out the Finals? Props for him for trying. Took guts.
