Balls-Eye: Will LeBron Pass Westbrook on Triple Double Record?

Russell Westbrook and LeBron James

With the Cleveland Cavaliers' recent win against the Utah Jazz, LeBron James bagged his 60th triple-double performance of his career to break the tie with Larry Bird.

29 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for the historical tiebreaker against a hall of famer. But can he chase Russell Westbrook and break his record this season?

Westbrook currently has 89 ranking at number 4 for the most triple-double.

It is much easier to win a game than to explode with a triple-double. It is not usual in every single game to have even just a single player on the winning side to play up to that intensity. In short, it isn't something we see every day.

LeBron is considered to be the best player in the world but is way behind Westbrook in terms of such exceptional performance. The question is:

Can he slip past Westbrook within this season?

Well, it is quite hard but it is not impossible. OKC's Triple threat slowed down Westbrook for he isn't the only one doing huge in the offense. His individual task of scoring huge was split into smaller pieces with the addition of Paul George and Carmelo Anthony. Hence, Russell has a lower chance to have triple-double performances every game. A double-double is slowly being typical of Russell Westbrook but still a triple-double game is a different story.

With Russell Westbrook being slowed down, does LeBron have enough time to chase and surpass him?

For a player like LeBron nothing's impossible. But bear in mind that if Westbrook is slowed down due to addition of superstars on OKC, it may have the same effect for LeBron as Cavs are undeniably more saturated with big players than OKC is.

Another thing is that its not as though Westbrook's record will remain static for the rest of the season. He may have less chances of performing huge but possibilities aren't absolutely zero.


LeBron may pass Westbrook but this season alone won't be enough time to do so.
