Last night Russel Westbrook recorded the NBA’s second eve
r 20-20-20 Triple Double. The only other player to do this was Wilt Chamberlain in 1968. Russel Westbrook has been on fire since the All-Star break. Paul George has stepped out of the spotlight and Westbrook stepped in. He is almost averaging a Triple Double for his third season straight.
In a post game interview Russel said “Overwhelming. It’s unbelievable to go out and — humbled, grateful to have played the game. But that wasn’t for me, man,” and “That was for my bro, man, that’s for Nipsey, man. Twenty plus twenty plus twenty, they know what that means. That’s for my bro. Rest in peace, Nipsey,”
And with Russel Westbrook only being 30 years old and being third all time in career Triple Doubles, he is going to be an all time great. Russel Westbrook has many more seasons left and fans around the league can’t wait to see what happens next.
