NBA History made on April 9th, 2017

Yesterday, Russell Westbrook broke an amazing NBA record that was previously made by Oscar “The Big O” Robertson. The NBA record broken was the amount of triple-doubles in a single season. The Big O had made the record with 41 triple-doubles, which was broken by Westbrook with 42 triple-doubles! He had a monster game that day, with 50 points, 16 rebound and 10 assist performance at Denver. To cap it all off, Westbrook even made the game-winning shot for his team, which was a 35-footer, at Chef Curry range!

Russell Westbrook and his teammates after the game-winning shot

To cap this season off for Westbrook, he even had averaged a triple-double! This new record will most likely never be broken again. But who really knows? After this historic night, it proves that just anything can be done.

Current and Recent Information about the NBA.

Things are always buzzing in the NBA, whether its news about a team or a single player. I will list some news that I am quite interested in.

  1. After All-star weekend, DeMarcus “Boogie” Cousins was traded from the Sacramento Kings to the New Orleans Pelicans for Buddy Hield and a couple other future NBA Draft picks.demarcus-cousins
  2. Charles Oakley was recently caught up in a bit of trouble involving physical and verbal attacks. He was arrested and also kicked out of the New York Knicks arena (Madison Square Garden) for harassing a security guard.
  3. The ice has been broken between Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant during the All-Star game. Many people were anticipating the usual, but the alley-oop from K.D. to Brodie seemed to assist in renewing their friendship.

This is all of the news that I will show for now, until next time.
