This year Russell Westbrook has been on an absolute tear! This man has broken so many records over the course of this season. Just to highlight a few things:
- Westbrook is on pace to be the first player since Oscar Robertson in the 1961-62 season to average a triple double. I mean that is absurd!
- Not only is doing that but he is also leading the league in scoring while doing so! Westbrook is averaging 31.3 PPG, 10.5 RPG, and 10.4 APG.
The question is, will his inhumane-like numbers be able to withstand the success James Harden and his Houston Rockets have had this season or will it be enough to beat out LeBron James’ leadership skills as the Cleveland Cavaliers plow through the Eastern Conference? Westbrook has stated that his game speaks for himself and only time will tell if he will receive enough 1st place notes.
