Washington Wizards star Russell Westbrook is the National Basketball Association’s new career triple-double record holder.
The 32-year old Westbrook last week set the bar by notching his 182nd triple-double game against the Atlanta Hawks, in the process erasing NBA legend Oscar Robertson’s career 181 TDs which he held since 1974.
Robertson’s career triple-double record was considered untouchable – until Westbrook came along.
In fact, it was so daunting that the NBA player with the third most number of career TD’s lagged far behind, Magic Johnson of the Lakers with 138.
Fourth-ranked Jason Kidd retired with 107 career TDs, while Lebron James (the closest among the active players) has only 99.
