Broussard on Westbrook Being MVP: ‘Magic, Jordan & LeBron Never Averaged a Triple-Double’ (Video)
Last night against the New Orleans Pelicans, Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook came through with his 3rd consecutive triple double, and his 29th of the season, when he dropped a 41-11-11 stat line en route to a win.
He also recorded his 7th career 40-pt triple-double, tying Wilt Chamberlain for 2nd most in NBA history. He now trails only James Harden and Oscar Robertson for the most 40-point triple-doubles in a single season in NBA history.
Despite all that, the Thunder are still just 7th in the Western Conference, and some have used that as an argument against Westbrook for the MVP award.
FS1’s Chris Broussard says hold on, because Westbrook is doing something the league hasn’t seen since Oscar Robertson, and that’s average a triple-double for the entire season.
