For example, supposedly Lee Sin is a particularly strong counter to Wukong. If we're in a draft match and I'm playing solotop, and I see you've already picked Wukong, then I'm left with a choice.
I could pick Lee Sin, a champion I'm relatively unfamiliar with, and attempt to lane against you, playing Wukong, your favorite champion which I'm sure you excel with. And while I'd be better off than if I were to pick a champion that Wukong counters such as Jayce or Vladimir (which I'm also relatively unfamiliar with).
However, ultimately, my best chances against you are going to be by picking a champion that I am good and excel with and is neither a counter to or countered by Wukong. For example, Jax.
If I'm better with Jax than you are with Wukong, chances are good that I'll win the lane against you.
If I'm better with Lee Sin, a Wukong counter, than you are with Wukong, then I'll crush the lane.
If you're better with Wukong than I am with Lee Sin, it could go either way, and chances are pretty good that you'll win the lane, despite Lee Sin being a Wukong counter.
If I picked Jayce and then you counter-picked Wukong, a Jayce counter, I could still beat you if I'm significantly better Jayce player than you are at Wukong.
Now, if Wukong is your main and Lee Sin is my main, chances are if we laned against each other, I'd win nearly every time because Lee Sin is indeed a Wukong counter. But whether or not one champion is a counter is only a small piece of the puzzle. If you're losing to all of Wukong's counters 100% of the time one of his counters is picked against you, then you're also probably losing against match-ups that aren't counters, and probably also losing against champions that you actually are a counter to.
