Fantasy basketball: The right way and wrong way to build around Russell Westbrook

What fascinates me about Washington Wizards point guard Russell Westbrook is just how different his value is for our standard points leagues and our old roto formats. It intrigues me so. Westbrook is a future Hall of Famer on his way to averaging a triple-double for the fourth season of the past five. It is quite the historic achievement but I have Westbrook in a roto league and I am not going to win it. Hmmm. What is the problem? Oh, field goal and free throw percentage count, as well as turnovers, too. Yep, problem!
