Russell Westbrook is chasing the single season triple-double record held by Oscar Robertson. The record was set in the 1961-62 season. Robertson gave ESPN his thoughts on whether he wants Westbrook to break his record:
“I’m rooting for him,” Robertson told ESPN. “I hope he does it.”
Also, Robertson believes that no guard in the NBA can beat Westbrook one-on-one:
“I was talking to some basketball people the other night, and I said, I don’t think any of these guards can beat him on a one-on-one game.”
Furthermore, Robertson believes that Westbrook should be the MVP.
Should be interesting to see if the voters will agree with Robertson.
