Russell Westbrook talks with Thunder.com about averaging a triple-double for the third straight season: “I go out and compete every night and leave it on the floor. Whatever happens, happens, each moment for me is a blessing. Each time I walk in this locker room and see my name up there is a blessing. That’s an unbelievable moment in itself. To be able to just wake up, have a job, have jersey, have a name on your back. To me that’s a blessing in itself and something I never even dreamed about as a kid.
Without (my teammates) none of this is possible, they make my job very, very easy and I try to do the same for them. So, just thankful for those group of guys in the locker room to be on my side, to be sharing on and encouraging, continuously putting out positive energy is always a great team especially inside of a team”
Westbrook is averaging 22.9 points, 11.1 rebounds and 10.6 assist
