Russell Westbrook is currently in his best season as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Averaging a mind blowing 31.7 points per game, 10.5 rebounds per game, and 10.4 assists per game.
James Harden’s Rockets are blasting off with a substantial lead in the western conference, but this award should not be a team stat. Its “Most Valuable Player”. Westbrook Leads Lebron James, Kawhi Leonard, and James harden in scoring, rebounding, and efficiency rating. Westbrook has single handedly carried the Thunder to a shocking 6-seed in the West, a strong 39-29 record (currently a half game up on Memphis).
And for those who sometimes forget that he’s on the brink of history being one of the only NBA players to ever average a triple double and break the record for most triple doubles in a single season (41) currently at 34.
Bottom line, Westbrook is about to break a record untouched for 55 years. Something nobody has even brought up until this year. If he breaks the triple double record, he should win MVP. he excels in every category offensively, masters the art of attacking the rim, and is by far the most exciting player to watch right now.
