I believe Westbrook has definitely matured his shot selection, I think that was a more than fair criticism prior to this season. Westbrook definitely could have made his team even better had he honed in his propensity to take ill-advised shots. However, shot selection comes with experience and time, so I wouldn't have expected him to be refined in that sense so early in his career.
I take exception to your comment that "the Thunder would be nothing without Westbrook". That's an obvious point. You take the second best player off any team and they will be nothing, or they will for sure not be contenders. So that really doesn't say anything.
