Oscar Robertson has declared in a podcast, Russell Westbrook should have gained the MVP award in the past season. The Royals and Bucks legend made lack of recognition for Westbrooks Triple Doubles.
I look at Westbrook, his triples doubles in the past season and no one has noticed that. They think that would be no big deal, said the 82-year-old in the Knucklehead’s podcast. I find the totally unfair. I think he should have gained the MVP award again.
Westbrook in the past season in the WizardS jersey with 22.2 points, 11.7 assists and 11.5 rebounds per game on average a triple double, this feat of him already succeeded for the fourth time in the past five years. 2016/17, when the Point Guard succeeded for the first time, he was awarded as MVP.
Previously, Robertson was the only NBA player who has launched a triple double via a complete playing time. In the past season Westbrook broke his record for most triple doubles of all time, Robertson came in his 14-year career on 182 Triple Doubles, Westbrook is now at 184.
He has already put on a triple double, but was not MVP. Why do we even collect the statistics? Robertson asked. The Point Guard legend ran from 1960 to 1974 for the Cincinnati Royals and the Milwaukee Bucks. In 1971 he took the championship with Milwaukee.
