    Jalen Rose needs to be drug tested… Russ not even done with his career yet.

    • Brandon Ohara

      Michael Vick stop being a hating troll and just deal with the fact that Russ is on a different level from any other player give me no damn excuse that his teammates let him get the rebounds LOL how about the other team try to prevent him from getting rebounds did you ever think of that moron?

    • Brandon Ohara

      Michael Vick since when is having a good work ethic mean that he’s just hunting for triple doubles? He had no one on his team last year besides Steven Adams and Oladipo who underachieved in OKC don’t be mad because he goes full speed every game every season

    • torjacks kan

      not done stat padding?

    • Jake Williams
      The amount of westbrick dickriding in this comment section is disgusting

    • #1 Jokic Fan

      Big O didn’t care about Triple Doubles lol. Russ did

  2. Yeah well we know who should be crowned easiest player to score on Mr.81

  3. FGE shit

    Russ will pass kidd before the playoffs

  4. The Real Neal

    I haven’t gotten to the analysis yet, but I’m in awe of the intro. More trip dubs that most of the NBA franchises all time combined?!

  5. Young King

    Ever since kobe dropped 81 on him he hasn’t been the same

  6. FREDO FOREVER IN THE CUT #RIP

    How many trip dubs Jalen got? How many MVPs and all star selections he got? None.

    • hip-hop_nerd888

      FREDO FOREVER IN THE CUT #RIP Most of Oscar’s triple dubs didn’t count but Russ will get close to or might even surpass him

    • Austin Savage

      Russell is gonna be 30 next year…what you mean “beginning his prime”?

    • Matt TheDestroyer 2

      FREDO FOREVER IN THE CUT #RIP too bad HE’S NOT FUCKING CLAIMING HE’S BETTER THAN HIM

    • +Prime Jordan Destroyer speech level 100

    • Tom Brady lost to a backup

      FREDO FOREVER IN THE CUT #RIP somebody’s triggered. #Westbrick #Westpad #Bricklayer

  7. All Westbrook needs 82 T-doubles and his career ain’t done so Jalen what you smoking ?

    • BrotherO4

      82 to match the stat when we started to count…he could have gone plus 220

  8. Pláybòï Slàttîér

    Jalen Rose is the king of 81 pts being scored on him

    • Matt TheDestroyer 2

      19*

    • Tom Brady lost to a backup

      Pláybòï Slàttîér Russell Westbrook is the king of laying bricks and stat padding

    • King Chris

      Tom Brady lost to a backup

      I never understood why he’s called “westbrick” care to explain? Is it just because of the dumb shots he tends to shoot more often than not? Or is it something else

    • Sankeerth Koshy

      Tom Brady lost to a backup you look stupid now

  9. Mr.Sauceman X

    Jalen Rose needs to be banned from ESPN!!!!!!

  10. 3hunna Points

    Jalen Rose is one of the biggest hater I know

    • Art Cutor

      Rd Cg when the black mamba dropped 81 on his bumass he’s never been the same

    • People actually think I'm the GOAT

      No even close.. skip is

    • sanjuanpapi

      +goat Armand to discredit Russell’s heart is just beyond stupid, he’s grabbing 10 Rees 10 assist, that’s his game, he’s a pg that attacks the home draws and kicks effortlessly, and grabs rebounds

    • Hold This L. Debarge

      king of getting trip dubbs dropped on him= J Rose

    • Hold This L. Debarge

      Jason Whitlock is the biggest hater …or Pit Bull (Patrice O Neal RIP)

  11. Micheal Johnson

    Russ not even finish yet 🤦🏾‍♂️

    • leo velasquez

      Not finish stat padding yet 😂

    • He’s finished this season

    • Micheal Johnson

      Sam wack

    • Fier The Great

      Oscar Robertson forever the Goat of Triple doubles…. Both eras was competitive for its time but the old days was definitely tougher!!!! This era of NBA is soft!!! Plus I watched games of Westbrook… he definitely trying his hardest to get those Triple doubles lol

    • Fier The Great

      Brzy actually it was less possessions back in the day smh lol this NBA is molded to be fast paced and offense driven… which is why they made certain rules changes like cutting back court from 10 secs to 8 cutting down shot clocks etc!!!

      You don’t even know who big O is (I can tell) aka also the man who sued the nba thus creating “free agency”….

      The man legitimately averaged a Triple double for his 1st 5 seasons COMBINED and only played 13 seasons with career numbers of 25k pts 9.8k rebounds and almost 8k assists….

      You know nothing about that era nor basketball making statements like that!!!

  12. ILLMATIC LIFESTYLE

    Jalen is a clown 🤡

  13. Jose Velazquez

    WESTBROOK is going against far more SUPERIOR competition than Oscar Robertson did. That’s FACT

    • Nick N

      Westbrook back then would be better then big o now

    • Devante Carter

      Jose Velazquez FACT

    • Fred Dukeduong

      Jose Velazquez u forget to realize that Oscar played the game NOT KNOWING or aware he’s averaging a triple double. Respect to Wrestbrook for doing two years straight but he knows that he’s chasing those triple doubles. Still super impressive at the same time kinda takes away from it because he knows he needs x amount of whatever points, rebs or assist to get a triple double. Prime example was the 2nd year he did it. He need I think about 13+ rebounds to finish the season with a triple double. He made it clear he was going to get those rebounds. It’s kinda like me and my stats before my team. That’s the part I don’t like. He’s just a hardworking freakish Athlete.

    • Nizz LaRock

      Thats a terrible argument. Ur using the best of the best to illustrate ur point. Larry bird and timmy are great because they found a way to be good despite not being top tier athletes. Your almost implying that everyone in the past are just like larry bird and tim duncan which is false.

    • JomoDaMusicMan

      Yes Russell played against better competition but he has a big advantage over BIG O, RUSSELL IS GOING AFTER A TRIPLE DOUBLE, IF BIG O KNEW WHAT A TRIPLE WAS, HE WOULD’VE WENT AFTER IT AND EASILY GOTTEN 50 MORE. THIS STAT IS MISLEADING THOUGH, BECAUSE BILL RUSSELL AND WILT EASILY HAD WELL OVER 200 GAMES THEY HAD 10 BLOCK SHOTS IN THEREFORE, WILT WOULD’VE HAD AT LEAST AN EXTRA 200 TRIPLE DOUBLES AND RUSSELL WOULD’VE ALSO HAD AN ADDIONAL 200 TRIPLE D. SAY WHAT U WANT BUT THIS IS A FACT. MANY GAMES EA OF THESE DEFENSIVE WIZARDS HAD MORE THAN A DOZ BLKS, I REMEMBER ONE QUARTER AGAINST THE ROYALS, WILT HAD 10 BLOCKS AND I ALSO REMEMBER ONE GAME THAT RUSSEL HAD AGAINST US THE CINCINNATI ROYALS THAT HE HAD 15 BLOCKS IN THE 1ST HALF ALONE. BACK N THE DAY, WE , MEANING THE BLACK FANS , WE COUNTED WHAT WE CALLED SNUFFS, U CALL BLOCKS

  14. Alea Applegate

    Russ is the king of triple double! Idc how many Oscar Robertson has, cause he played in a entirely different era of basketball and I guarantee that he wouldn’t be able to do what Russ is doing in today’s game.

    • Alea Applegate and i doubt Russell Westbrook could triple double in Robertson’s era…assist are counted different meaning if a player take 1 dribble from the pass its no longer counted as an assist…plus could westbrook run(fast break) all game long???

  15. Preston Crockett

    Westbrook 100 triple doubles. 100 is what Wilt scored in a game. 001 is backwards 100. 100 has 3 numbers and has a 1 in it. 3… 1… Warriors blew a 3-1 lead.

  16. NBA Highlights And Discussions

    Jalen is the king of 81 tho

  17. Brett Maverick

    You think Oscar would avg a triple double in todays game? gtfo….

    • If he’s playing with a center who gives him his rebounds then yes. (Steven Adams)

    • 4 OR EVER D 3 A D

      I know they would be up for the challenge though.

    • The game was more physical in the 80s and 90s but oscar was playing against scrubs. Look at that unalthletic white guy guarding em in the video. Westbrook wouldn’t even be allowed to have all that advanced athleticism back in oscars day. Human beings didnt explode to the basket back then like that.. But im sure westbrook wouldnt of even been the same player having grown up in that era so its probably a wash.

    • JomoDaMusicMan

      Did u forget, or even know BIG O, WAS 6’5″ AND COULD JUMP, YES, HE WOULD GET HIS SHARE OF REBS AND 9,800 ASSIST, AIN’T NO JOKE, PLUS SCORING 30 PTS BIG O MAY BE THE G.OA.T, JORDAN COULDN’T GET 6,000 ASSIST OR REBS I FORGOT TO MENTION BIG O ALSO HAD 7,800 REBS MORE THAN MAGIC AND MAGIC WAS 6’9″

  18. Mixedgen

    Russ has the most triple doubles in a season, Oscar has most triple doubles in a career, so they both have their own legacy…. SIMPLE

  19. Mixedgen

    Honestly you can’t really compare two different generations because of all the changes in players and rules. Put it this way, Oscar is the triple double king of his time and Russ the triple double king of his time!
