18. Russell Westbrook
From one former Thunder player to a current one. Russell Westbrook is still one of the best players in the NBA. His ability to put up legitimately amazing numbers cannot be overlooked. He has put up 20 or more points every season since the 2010-2011 NBA season to today. Twice in this time, he has been the NBA’s Scoring Champion (2015, 2017) with 28 & 31.6 points per game respectably.
Russ also led the league in assists twice (2018, 2019) and thus became the only man to lead the league in points and assists two times each in NBA history. He was the only man to average a triple-double for an entire season since Oscar Robertson. Now he has done it the last 2 seasons in a row, giving him 3 years of a triple-double average. He is the only player to do so.
Westbrook has the record for triple-doubles in a season with 42. He’s an 8-time NBA All-Star with an NBA MVP Award won in 2017. Sadly, he plays in the West that has been dominated by the Spurs and Warriors for most of Westbrook’s career. Most feel that despite these teams doing well, the Thunder have failed early in the playoffs.
