"I just don't know 10 players on the planet that are better than Russell Westbrook. ... If you are a franchise, and you're looking for a culture setter ... Russell Westbrook is actually one of the first five players you pick for that role." — @stephenasmith
Like.... If Russell Westbrook could average a TRIPLE DOUBLE in this generation.... What do you think MJ would average...? In a no handchecking league. In a “flagrant foul” league. Man MJ wasn’t even wearing all that “body armor”. Straight TANKTOP
Russell Westbrook doesn't care what anyone thinks of him. Even if what they think is good.

It's certainly interesting that Houston has nosedived at the same time Russell Westbrook is fitting in better than ever. I don't know what it means or if it's any deeper than an unrelated cold spell from everyone else, but it's interesting.
You might think Russell Westbrook just stat-padded his way to back-to-back seasons averaging a triple-double. But if it were just as easy as that, he wouldn't have been the first guy in 60 years to average one, and the first ever to do it twice.
Russell Westbrook went off a bit on the idea he stat-pads rebounds: “If you don’t want it, I’m gonna get it. Simple as that.”
