This seems like such a no-brainer that he would tie and eventually break this record, given the fact that he averaged a triple double for an entire season. That or the fact that he seems to be able to get one on any given night.
And yet somehow that’s not the amazing part. What is truly amazing is how normalized we’ve become to it. Totally numb.
Sure there’s plenty of ammo for the critics that want to hate on Westbrook for one reason or another. And sure he may have a total of 0 championships in his career, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that we are witnessing something special and have been for quite some time.
List of people to have 50 rebounds and 50 assists in a 3-game span:
1.) Russel Westbrook
End of list.#NBATwitter (via:@SportsCenter)
