Russell Westbrook speaks on passing Magic Johnson on all-time triple-doubles list
Russell Westbrook added to his legacy as a player as he’s now the player with the second-most number of triple-doubles in NBA history. It’s an impressive feat that will not likely be repeated any time soon.
Brodie is more than honored to be placed so high in such an exclusive club many NBA players can only dream of joining.
Russell Westbrook on passing Magic Johnson on the all-time triple-doubles list: “For me, that’s a great accomplishment, especially growing up never thinking I’d play in the NBA. Now, I’ll be in the history books.”

Russell Westbrook, who played in Oklahoma City his entire career before being traded to Houston this summer, is a triple-double machine disguised as a human being. His athleticism and court vision helps him score in the rim, grab boards, and make the right pass for the easy score. He was the core of Oklahoma City until the team decided to part ways with him.
Everyone remembers the first time he finished an entire season with a triple-double. In his first year as the sole leading man, Westbrook averaged 31.6 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 10.4 assists on a 43% shooting clip. He’s averaged a triple-double in the two years following that game. His scoring numbers dipped a bit due to letting Paul George take more shots, but his effectiveness can still be felt by everyone on the court.
It’s due to his immense talents as a dynamic guard that Houston fans are excited about his reunion with James Harden in Houston. Of course, the team’s under no illusion that things will be easy in the ever-competitive Western Conference. However, having Westbrook by Harden’s side should make things very exciting for them this year.
