Man, Kevin Durant created a fucking monster, bro. Even though Russell Westbrook has always played like someone sprinkled fecal matter on his Corn Flakes, he’s turned it up to 1000% this year, son. Has anyone been watching this dude, man?! 22 games into the NBA season, Westbrook is currently averaging a triple-double. Even crazier, he’s had triple-doubles in six straight games and reached that feat by the third quarter in four of the last five games. What kind of video game shit is this, bro? Now, the real question is, can he keep this up for the entire season?
As of right now, Westbrook is averaging 31 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds. Only Oscar Robertson has ever averaged a triple-double for an entire season. He accomplished this feat during the 1970-71 season. Side note, Robertson also averaged a triple-double over a five-season period, but people don’t seem to talk about that as much. On the real, I have no idea why because I think that’s an even sillier accomplishment. In any case, with his absurd play this season, Westbrook has already passed LeBron James on the all-time triple-double list. Keep in mind, it took him 400 less games to do so. Now, I’m not trying to say anything about James’ legacy, because he’s already in the Top 3, but c’mon son, that’s an insane stat. A fucking insaaaane stat, man.
Now, let’s not pretend like Westbrook’s savagery isn’t a direct result of Durant leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder. While Westbrook has always been the one with the most heart on the team, when Durant tucked his tail between his legs and scurried over to the Golden State Warriors, Westbrook clearly took that shit personally, son. I truly believe that he believes he can steamroll his way into the playoffs and to a title. Shit, at this point, I want to see it, son. I want to see Westbrook average a triple-double for a whole season. I want to see the Thunder battle the Warriors in the playoffs. I want to see Westbrook dunk on the entire Golden State starting five… repeatedly. This is what basketball is about, son! Competition, competition and more competition! Let the bad blood rain, son! Kumite!!!
In the end, as I’m sure anyone reading this can tell, I’m enjoying the hell out of this show, man. I just hope it lasts forever. Viva la Russell Westbrook! Good day.
