Today Russell Westbrook recorded his 182nd career triple-double, passing Oscar Robertson for the most in NBA history. Russ will now have his name etched in the histroy books forever, and I can’t see anyone ever being more synonymous with the triple-double than him in my lifetime. When you think triple-double, you think Russell Westbrook.
And I’m sorry, but I simply will not tolerate any Westbrook slander, or any degrading of this achievement. If it was easy, everyone would do it. And in an era in which NBA players efforts are increasingly decreasing, Russ continues to give the most shits in the league night in and night out. You know why Houston got rid of him? Because you can’t tank with Russell Westbrook on your team. He won’t let it happen. Enjoy the greatness of Russ while it lasts, because he seems to be a dying breed, and we’ll never see another guy like him again.
