Russell Westbrook (RUSSELL WESTBROOK) created a brilliant NBA history with 28 points, 13 rebounds and 21 assists.
In Washington’s defeat of Atlanta (124:125), he reached the 182nd triple-double. New NBA record.
Therefore, Westbrook has surpassed 13 years in the strongest league, one more year than Oscar Robertson. Since 1974, the legendary Big O has maintained a record for nearly half a century, which seems impossible to achieve. Nevertheless, he was knocked down by Westbrook.
In the past few decades, many great men have not even approached Robertson’s adventures. Magic Johnson rose to 138, Jason Kidd ended his career with 107, and Wilt Chamberlain won 78 triple-doubles.
LeBron James (LeBron James) is such an effect, away from 100 games of triple-doubles. Active players in the top ten include James Harden (58) and Nikola Jokic (Nikola Jokic), who have 56 triple-doubles. For example, Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant did not even have ten players with a triple-double.
After Westbrook became the new triple record holder, those who followed him bowed to him, led by the man who had kept the record for nearly 50 years.
Oscar Robertson: “Russell, I am happy for you. Your family is proud of you, and I bow to you for all your achievements in our competition.”
Magic Johnson: “Congratulations on skipping Oscar Robertson and becoming the triple-double record holder.”
Jason Kidd: “What is this?! Unbelievable! We met a long time ago and confronted each other, and now you have become the greatest player in history.”
LeBron James: “I love you, man. Your achievements are amazing, but amazing.”
