But his coach, Scott Brooks, believes the 25-year-old is the “best point guard in basketball” — something he player himself doesn’t disagree with.

“That’s how I feel,” he says. “I don’t know what to tell you. I felt like that since I got in the league. That’s my mindset. As a rookie, I come in and I felt like I’m the best player on the floor. That’s the way I played since college. Just how I think.”

A new ESPN poll doesn’t agree however, with just 17% of Americans rating Westbrook as the L’s best PG.

The only other player in the league to do that? LeBron James.
