Russell Westbrook says he wants to make sure Paul George and Carmelo Anthony are “comfortable” playing their game.

In contrast to his scorched-earth approach last season, Westbrook said he wants OKC’s big three to “play off each other.”  From ESPN’s Royce Young:

“That’s a part of my job to make sure those guys are [comfortable],” Westbrook said.


“Those guys are great players and my job is to make sure they’re comfortable, and in their spots, and comfortable with the things that best benefits their game.” […]


“Whoever has it going, that’s where the ball’s going. We play off each other and figure it out. The game will tell you what to do.”
