Statistics Rumors

It’s been 55 years since the Hall of Famer averaged a triple-double for a full season – 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds, 11.4 assists – and nobody in the NBA has averaged double figures in all three categories since. So nobody’s more qualified than Robertson to shoot down the idea that Westbrook – who opens his season Wednesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers, against whom he’s posted triple doubles in three straight games – can’t accomplish the season-long feat. But he won’t. “I first will ask this: Why do (people) think he wouldn’t do it?” Robertson said this week. “It’s not impossible. I think he has all the tools to do it.”
