Russell Westbrook Has to Allow Paul George to be OKC's Franchise Player

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why it’s about time the Oklahoma City Thunder franchise has a little ‘sit down’ with Russell Westbrook the same way a parent has with their rebellious teenager to let the defiant Westbrook know who’s the boss on this team now.

Oklahoma City suffered one of the most heartbreaking playoff losses in NBA history Tuesday night after Damian Lillard’s 37-foot buzzer-beater ended the Thunder’s season, but more has been said of Westbrook’s ugly 11 for 31 shooting line, with Paul George only taking 20 shots (and making 14).

Check out the audio below as Colin says PG-13 has to officially be given the reigns to the franchise so a similar finish never happens again. With the game in the balance, an awry Westbrook cannot be hogging the touches while the supernatural George, who's established himself as one of the game's ten best players, simply spectates.
