There could not have been a better ending to a historical evening for Russell Westbrook. He managed to surpass Oscar Robertson’s 55 year old record of 41 triple doubles in a season. He surpassed Wilt for 4th all-time in career triple doubles. He surpassed James Harden for most 50 point triple doubles in a season and did so by hitting a game winning buzzer beater.
This probably soon-to-be MVP definitley caught the attention of NBA fans and players around the league. Here’s what some of them had to say.
