Could Russell Westbrook average 10 assists per game next season?

NewsOK.com Sports Staff Published: July 11, 2011

In today’s Power Lunch chat, Darnell Mayberry was asked whether Russell Westbrook could average more than 10 assists per game next season if James Harden started beside him. Here’s Darnell’s answer:

No. The total is more likely to go down, actually. And perhaps it should. Harden is a better playmaker. If he does indeed start next season, he should have the ball in his hands a good amount to make things easy and cut out some of that foolish one-on-one stuff. Russ averaged 8.2 assists last year. With a full year of leeway and a green light to attack, I see that number going down. Besides, only three players averaged 10-plus assists last year: Nash, Rondo and D-Will. CP came 0.2 assists shy. That’s a hard thing to do.

What do you think? Do you agree? Read the rest of Darnell’s chat here.
