Russell Westbrook messed around and averaged a triple-double in 2016-17 NBA season

Russell Westbrook has done it! He will average a triple-double in the 2016-17 NBA season. Westbrook needed six assists for the rest of the season to average a triple-double for the year; he recorded eight assists in a losing effort against the Suns 120-99.

The last and only other player to do it was Oscar Robertson; who averaged 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists in the 1961-62 season.

Westbrook is still stuck on 41 triple doubles. He finished the night with 23 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 assists. 

For the season, Westbrook averages 31.8 ppg, 10.7 rpg, and 10.4 apg. 

Westbrook has an opportunity Sunday night against the Nuggets. 

‘MVP, MVP, MVP’

Westbrook gets triple-double number 33

The Russell Westbrook triple-double show made a stop in Brooklyn last night; he messed around and got triple-double number 33. OKC defeated the Nets 122-104. Westbrook stat line was 25pts, 12 rebs and 19 assts. The Thunder are 27-6 when Westbrook messes around and gets a triple-double. In order for Westbrook to finish the season averaging a triple-double and being at 30ppg, he would need to average 21.8 ppg, 8.8 apg, and 7.5 rpg. Can he do it? I think he will.

If he finishes the season averaging a triple-double, he has to be the MVP.  I just can’t see how he could not be the MVP. What’s happening here is historic. This achievement warrants the MVP!

We’ll see if the MVP voters agree!
