Russell Westbrook is currently No. 2 in the NBA in assists and No. 3 in scoring among point guards. He’s also by far the best rebounder at the position in the league with 7.7 boards per game, which is a career high for him and one of the best marks ever by a point guard in league history.

Only Fat Lever, Jason Kidd and Darrell Walker, who played shooting guard too, have averaged better numbers in an NBA season.

Per Basketball Reference, Westbrook is grabbing 12.2 percent of available rebounds when he’s on the floor. That’s better than Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka, Roy Hibbert and LeBron James.
