9. Russell Westbrook

Speaking of NBA All Stars, how about adding Russell Westbrook to your team of survivors? Westbrook not only played in six All Star games, but he was the Most Valuable Player for two of those. And that’s just in the NBA. Westbrook kills it elsewhere as well, winning gold medals in the 2012 Olympics and the 2010 FIBA World Championship. You can’t argue with facts, and obviously Westbrook is one of the best players in the league.

On the court, Westbrook carries himself with an intensity that just cannot be matched. That’s seemingly why nobody is able to keep up with him. His unique endurance allows him to keep the volume turned way up for the duration of the game. He’s easily one of the most athletic players of the NBA and is constantly recognized for his all around skills on the court.

Although he ensures his own performance is always top notch, Westbrook works very well with others. He averages over seven assists each game, always giving his teammates opportunities to score as well. So we’ve got someone here who is very talented on their own, but still willing to work with others to ensure the whole team gets the win.
