This NBA season was remarkable, especially for one specific player: Russell Westbrook. A professional point guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder and recorded 42 triple-doubles in a single season. Westbrook, averaged 31.6 points, 10.4 assists, and 10.7 rebounds. For those of you who do not know, a triple double would be having 10 of each stat in a game for 3 categories (ex: 10 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists). Why would this be such an honorable mark in NBA history you ask? Well the last time this record was set, it was in 1962. During that year, Oscar Robertson had 41 triple-doubles. As you can see, it took 55 years for that record to be broken. This goes to show how difficult it is to get this amount of triple-doubles in the NBA. However, 42 wasn’t enough to win it all. Although Westbrook had a historical season, it still did not lead him to an NBA Championship. Recently, the Thunder team was eliminated by the Houston Rockets in the first round of the playoffs. Even though Russell ended this year with a disappointing loss, many fans will always remember this record. On the other hand, we can now see that Westbrook doesn’t necessarily need Kevin Durant on his team.
