Why Is There No MVP Talk for Russell Westbrook?

So if you're bad at math like me, Westbrook needed 16 boards to make-up that 0.1 rebound-per-game margin to complete the triple-double season.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook became the first National Basketball Association player to record historic multiple triple-double seasons in the win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.

Oklahoma City Thunder guard and reigning Kia NBA MVP Russell Westbrook added himself to a page in the NBA history books that he now sits all alone on. At halftime, he had just one point, 11 rebounds and 12 assists and attempted two shots.

With much less fanfare this season, Westbrook quietly - well, as quiet as Westbrook can be - once again put up incredible numbers, and entered Wednesday's game needing 16 rebounds to clinch a second straight triple-double average.

In effect, Westbrook appeared to prioritize hitting double-digits in rebounds but didn't go out of his way in garbage time to pad his stats. "As long as we get the rebound, I don't think we worry about that". If people could get 20 rebounds a night, they would.
