Lol under, the leader last year was D. Cousins at 20.5. Russell was a little over 18 and I think he'll be around 21. Now if you consider attempts he gets fouled on then yeah it will be over 25.

Two years ago, Russ averaged a little under 22 shots a game. Now with KD gone again, it's time for Russ to assert himself.

he was also missing much more than durant that year. ibaka was hurt as well as others. He was playing with some atrocious players. That won't be the case this year.

He will still have oliadipo, adams, and kanter for starters.

I'm guessing around 20 shots per game

That is if he is still here

O.K. I'll set the O/U at 23-but that team wasn't "atrocious." Below average, but not atrocious.

Go look at some of those lineups. It was scary

Still on-pace for an amazing triple-double SEASON AVERAGE.

31.4 ... Points
10.5 ... Rebounds
10.4 ... Assists

Looks like he's going to average a triple double and may break Big O's all time season for most triple doubles in a season. Never thought we would see either record broken. If Magic or Bird or Jordan couldn't do it in the 80s nobody really could. But Russell makes it look easy.

And sadly, b/c Harden is having such an amazing season as well, I don't think he will win mvp unless one of two things happen...The thunder reach the 4 seed or he breaks the record.

But I don't know how anyone could argue that he isn't technically the most valuable player to a team. without him, the thunder would probaly have the worst record in the league

And, if that happens, do the kid gloves come off regarding Presti?

Westbrook had his sixth straight triple double today, his 40th of the season and just one short of "The Big O's" record. If he ties or breaks the record, as it appears he will, it would be a travesty worthy of a criminal investigation if he doesn't win the MVP award.

do you mean if westbrook leaves, will presti be fired?
I certainly think it would be warranted.
But if westbrook is set on leaving, I am blindly optomistic that he would be upfront with management and give them time to work a deal to trade him for some high picks to start rebuild.
Then let presti make some picks and start the rebuild process then bring someone else in to develop the team.

He won't win it b/c the thunder are going to finish with the 6th seed.
If they finished 5th or 4th i think he would win it.

But I think most people know that he truly is the most valuable. Houston is still an average team without harden. But the thunder would be dead last in the league without westbrook

They were discussing Russell's rebounding on The Franchise this morning. They said that players such as Stephen Adams and Enes Kanter block out, so that Russell can get more rebounds, but that Stephen and Enes don't get the rebounds themselves.

Yep. But they do that so Westbrook can start with the ball in his hands and get up the court.

RW gets most of his rebounds because he out hustles everyone else, not because Adams and Kanter give him an unfair advantage.

If working harder than anyone on the floor and never taking a play off is what it takes to win the MVP award, Russell would win it hands down. But that's not all he has done this season. NBA basketball fans everywhere have been treated to history in the making. He tied a record in tonight's game against Milwaukee no one thought would ever be tied or broken. How could that possibly not be enough to earn the MVP award?

There is definitely some hijinx involved with the rebounding. Anybody can see that.

I was there tonight. He painted a masterpiece. That was beautiful to watch.

Just look at the play that RW got the triple double on last night...that is the reason the bigs "let" him get rebounds.

MVP isn't, and shouldn't, be given out based on what the name implies.

Yes, the name states the most valuable. But it should be given to the most outstanding, or best, or whatever you want to call it. And that ain't Westbrook.

So an award shouldn't be based on what it is called?

Doesn't matter, I think you can make a case for most outstanding or most valuable for Westbrook this year. He did something that hasn't been done in 50+ years. The players all think it should be him. the legends all think it should be him. Pretty much the only people that don't think it should be are some members of the media, houston fans, and warrior fans.

I'd also argue that most people think the Valuable part means to his team.

Why can't it mean just in general? Valuable as in who is worth the most, or produces the most.

Why in the world would they want to give an award to a guy that might only be pretty good on the larger NBA scale, but b/c the team around him sucks, he is the single most valuable player on any one team? That is dumb logic. Glad they don't vote on it that way. It's an award that is given to the best player, or the player that had the best year. Again, that ain't Westbrook.
