You hit the nail on the head. Every player who dominated in this league - Bill Russell, Jordan, Kobe - was a complete and total douchebag. They will win at any and all cost. Durant is maybe the most gifted player of his generation, but he doesn't have that "darn you" gene. Fortunately, Russell Westbrook does. Everyone tried to drive a stake between them last year, but the truth is they can't win without each other.
The problem is the Thunder are running into the Spurs...and Tony Parker also has the "darn you" gene, and he is saving it all for Westbrook, who he HATES. Watch TP9 average 25/10 this series and shut down Westbrook, and don't be surprised when it happens either.
