The triple-double king is officially here.
“Russell Westbrook jumped up for an uncontested defensive rebound with 8:30 remaining against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday and leaped past Oscar Robertson in the history books to become the NBA’s triple-double king. That simple rebound in the fourth quarter of the Wizards’ 125-124 loss at Atlanta completed a history-making triple-double that snapped a record many thought was previously unattainable and had stood since Robertson recorded his 181st triple-double on March 24, 1974. Robertson had been the all-time leader in the category since he took the lead during the 1961-62 season,” per ESPN.
Westbrook continues to strive to get his team to the NBA play-in tournament.
Since his first triple-double in 2009…Westbrook has proved he doesn’t sell anyone short of energy on any given night.
