Russell Westbrook recorded his 182nd career triple-double during Monday night's 125-124 loss to the Atlanta Hawks, breaking Oscar Robertson's record for all-time triple-doubles.
Westbrook finished the game with 28 points, 21 assists, and 13 rebounds.
"It's just a blessing. You put so much into the game, so much time, you sacrifice so much, to be able to just be mentioned with guys like Oscar, Magic and Jason Kidd, those guys, is something I never dreamed about as a young kid growing up in LA. Truly grateful for moments like this," said Westbrook after the game.
Westbrook, who is averaging a triple-double on the season, has recorded 36 triple-doubles this year.
Westbrook added that he didn't know how far he could stretch his record.
"I guess we will see in another 50 years or so. I don't know. Through the good, the bad and the ugly, I always stay true to myself," Westbrook added about his mentality. "I will never change because I have been blessed to be able to play this game at a level that nobody else can play at. And I won't stop until I can't play no more."
