i wish human beings had 6 fingers on each hand so we could stop with all this triple-double talk
Plus the rules have been changed to make it far easier for players to achieve these days. Plug Russ into a team back in the 80's or 90's and let's see how his stats shake out. He'd still be a great player. But, there would be a significant difference.
then don't compare rw to the past eras!! compare him to his peers like you should be doing. lebron f'ing has never even SNIFFED a season average tripleD, nor cp3, nor harden, nor anybody....nobody today comes close.
how come you all are so eager to ask if a past star could play in today's game and yet when it comes to rw you're all asking if he could play yesterday's game??
lebron averages a wimpy 7.5 apg on a year in year out basis. he's 6'8" 260 and he can't even average double digits in rebounding. he's too damn busy worrying about his ppg
this is one of THE most misguided posts i have ever read
lebron doesn't give two s***s about his PPG. if he did he'd be averaging 30 every year. and rebounding has NOTHING to do with points! if anything, focusing on getting ORBs INCREASES a player's ability to score points
and you're seriously calling 7.5 assists per game wimpy? and for a guy as big as lebron? he's a more than willing passer and has excellent court vision. this has been the case since he was in high school and has always been widely acknowledged. what planet are you on?!
westbrook is a triple-double hunter. it's beyond obvious. if he's near a triple-double at the end of a game he and his team do everything possible to make it happen
