Russell Westbrook only is 6-foot-3.
Yet somehow the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard is averaging 10.5 rebounds per game and last night recorded his NINTH triple-double of the young NBA season, the 46th of his nine-year career.
So how is the five-time All-Star such a force on the glass? It’s not that difficult, according to him.
This strategy clearly is working for Westbrook, as he is averaging a triple-double on the season and has led the Thunder to a 12-8 record, good for fifth-best in the Western Conference. It’s safe to say he’s an early MVP front-runner.
While the “just chill and act like I’m not doing nothing,” approach works for Westbrook, you probably shouldn’t use this strategy at your day job.
