So Westbrook's WAR (wins above replacement) is essentially zero. It's not are they better without him, it's why aren't they worse?
Nowitzki would be ahead of all these guys if I were putting a team together to win a playoff run though.
Where did you come up with that statement? WAR of zero? WAR is a baseball term. The NBA's most used secondary stat is PER, of which Westbrook is 20th, ahead of Paul George, Harden, Wade, Kyrie.
They are worse without him. Look at the Thunder's record with and without.
