Westbrook comes back to UCLA and plays in the summer. Do you?
"Absolutely. It’s a lot of fun. A lot of the pros come out here and do it. It’s a good run, good competition. And LA’s beautiful.”
Westbrook got his UCLA scholarship because you left school early to turn pro. What do you think of his game so far?
"He’s done a great job making the transition. They gave him the green light, which helped him kind of find his way and be comfortable. Now he’s the guy on that team who runs the show. Kevin Durant’s the scorer, but everything runs through Russ. He’s been really aggressive, attacking the rim. Got that mid-range, 15-foot game down. In transition, he gets his team going. So he’s doing a great job. He’s a tough matchup, too. Gives everybody a hard time.”
