Today we are going to recognize the beast that is Russell Westbrook. With Kevin Durant gone one of the top 3 best players in the NBA Westbrook has put OKC on his back and is willing his team to some impressive wins. With an 8-6 start the Oklahoma City Thunder are ranked 6 in the tough western conference. So far this season Westbrook is averaging 31.6 point per game 9.7 rebounds per game and has tallied 146 assists. May I also add that Westbrook is averaging 5 blocks per game. This is why I call Russell Westbrook a beast he is almost averaging a triple double every time he steps onto the hardwood which has not been done since the 1961-62 season when Oscar Robertson’s averaged 30.8 PPG, 12.5 RPG, and 11.4 APG. In Oklahoma City’s last game against the Indiana Pacers which resulted into a 111-115 lose for OKC in O/T. Russell Westbrook scored 31 points dished out 15 assists and grabbed 11 boards. Westbrook is literally a triple double waiting to happen here is a video of his performance.
Westbrook has proven to be one of the NBA’s top performers this season people may say that he won’t be able to keep up the pace that he is playing for the remainder of the season but I think he is going to prove the haters wrong and will his team to a top seed in the playoffs.
