Oscar Robertson Hopes Westbrook Breaks Triple-Double Record

on

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook has a supporter in his effort to set an NBA record for most triple-doubles in a season: current record-holder Oscar Robertson.

Speaking at the Final Four in Phoenix on Friday, Robertson told ESPN’s Andy Katz that “I’m rooting for him” to break the record and that “I hope he does it.” “I always thought he was a great basketball player,” Robertson said of Westbrook. “I was talking to some basketball people the other night, and I said, ‘I don’t think any of these guards can beat him in a one-on-one game.’ I think he’s been tremendous for the team, his fans and also for television.”
