He still has his immature bouts with the media, sniping at reasonable questions and shooting glaring, distasteful looks. He still whines a bit too much toward referees during frustrating games. But overall, Westbrook showed plenty of on-court maturity this past season. The injury troubles seemed to humble him a bit. He’s more receptive to suggestions from teammates, channels his energy in better ways, plays with more control more frequently. Still a pain to deal with after games, Westbrook has never been more a pain for opponents to deal with during games. And part of that is because, on the court, he seems to be growing up.
