So, you have your Lebron James, and you’re Steph Currys but my word, Russell Westbrook has been tearing it up for the Oklahoma Thunder so far this season. The man is on fire at the moment, only six-foot, three inches, yet his is pulling down 10.9 rebounds per game, beating the likes of Kevin Love, DeMarcus Cousins and Karl-Anthony. Then you look at his point’s ratio throughout the season… putting up triple-doubles as easy as scorers score in double digits, it’s literally insane!
As we’ve just past the quarter mark of the season, Westbrook stats are as followed:
31.1 points, 10.9 rebounds, 11.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 5.8 turnovers
Can He Lead The Thunder To Glory?
Like I’ve said, we’re only a quarter of the way through the season and I really feel sorry for anyone having to defend against Westbrook; when the Thunder played the Suns, Westbrook emulated that Shammgod crossover move which was famous in the 1990’s. He is just full of confidence at the moment and is attempting to fire some consistency into the Oklahoma team who currently have a form of W/L/L/W/L/W/W. Despite their positioning in the Western Conference (7th) I still think they will make the play-offs and push for the final championship game. They were unlucky last season not to reach the final, but with Westbrook playing the way he is right now, they can be the dark-horses to become this year’s champions which could be worth a good bet.

Betting on the NBA winner during this year campaign is going to be really tricky and no thanks to Russell Westbrook. He has surely solidified his place among the league’s top MVP and the way he played against the Suns in their last match backs up his claim even more! To show off, like I’ve already mentioned earlier in this piece, he is posting a triple double of 26 points and on the season, Westbrook is currently averaging a historically-significant contest and he is going to be the reason whether or not the Thunder progress to final stages of the competition. Despite his dominating performance against the Suns on Saturday, he has become just the sixth player in NBA history to record 50 career triple-doubles and he’s still only 28 years old.
My three stand-out stars so far goes to James Harden, Lebron James and obviously Russel Westbrook, but out of the three, it has to go to RW. All things being relatively equal, he’s the one on track to make history, without him in the team, am sorry to say, they’d just simply implode. If he were to win it makes the story that much nicer since Kevin Durant jilted him and left to the powerhouse that is Golden State Warriors.
