Journey

Russell Westbrook was a talented young player but was not a starter until his junior year, largely because he was only 5’8”. After growing 5 inches before his senior year, he attracted attention from college scouts and went on to play for UCLA.

After just two seasons at UCLA, Russell made himself eligible for the 2008 draft and was selected 4th overall in a very competitive draft. Currently, he plays a key role for Western Conference contender, Houston Rockets.

In 2017, the year he won the league MVP award, Westbrook became one of two players in NBA history to average a triple-double. He also set a record for the most triple-doubles in a season, with 42. He went on to average a triple-double the following two seasons, as well as lead the league in assists and become the first player to lead the league in points and assists in multiple seasons. He is currently second all-time in career triple-doubles in NBA history.
