Throughout Russell Westbrook’s incredible start he has continually said that he does not care about tallying triple-doubles, only winning. Still, after every game, reporters ask Russell about triple-doubles—whether he’s had one or not.
After last night’s game against the Jazz, Russ let everyone know that the questions are starting to get on his nerves.
“Honestly, man, people and this triple-double thing is kind of getting on my nerves,” said Westbrook, who was 7-of-25 from the floor and committed five turnovers. “People think if I don’t get it, it’s like a big thing. When I do get it, it’s a thing. If y’all just let me play. … If I get it, I get it. If I don’t, I don’t. It is what it is. I really don’t care. For the 100th time, I don’t care.”
Once again, Westbrook said that all he cares about is winning and that the “numbers shit” doesn’t mean anything to him.
