#NBA 2018-19 Regular-Season Highest Assist Average via @FDSportsbook— The Duel (@TheDuelSports) October 23, 2018
Russell Westbrook ➕1⃣7⃣0⃣
Ben Simmons ➕3⃣0⃣
James Harden ➕6⃣0⃣0⃣
Chris Paul ➕2⃣3⃣0⃣0⃣
Rajon Rondo ➕3⃣0⃣0⃣
Draymond Green ➕4⃣1⃣0⃣0⃣
Jeff Teague ➕4⃣1⃣0⃣0⃣
Jrue Holiday ➕4⃣1⃣0⃣0⃣
Kyle Lowry ➕4⃣1⃣0⃣0⃣
There are some huge names on that list, but no one who fills up the assist column quite like Westbrook.
How can you pick anyone but Westbrook at this point? Over the past three years, he's finished second, third, and first in assists. He's also the only player over that span to finish with an average of over 10 per game each year, with John Wall being the only player to do it twice.
If his season opener was any inclination, he's going to have another season feeding everyone on the Thunder.

Just imagine how high his numbers can get without Carmelo Anthony firing up bricks on a regular basis.
Until someone finds the off switch on him, Westbrook, understandably, is the favorite.
