Making History: Russell Westbrook Becomes the All-Time Triple-Double Leader

Chicago Bulls

It was only a matter of time.

Russell Westbrook has officially etched his name in the NBA record books on Monday night after recording his 182 triple-double. He has now surpassed Oscar Robertson as the all-time NBA leader in triple-doubles, a record that held for 47 years.

Westbrook, 32, has been on track to break this record for quite some time, but that doesn’t make the achievement any less astonishing. Notable playoff record aside, Westbrook will go down as one of the most versatile and athletic point guards in NBA history. He is averaging 22.0 points, 11.6 rebounds, and 11.5 assists this season.
