21. Russell Westbrook
Five years ago, it would have been crazy to imagine if any NBA player would ever average a triple double over a whole season again, like Oscar Robertson once did. Now Russell Westbrook has done it three straight seasons and we barely even bat an eyelid anymore. Westbrook won MVP his first such season and probably won’t even finish top 10 in 2019. He’s now averaging 25 points, 8 rebounds, and 9 assists over almost a decade at his peak, and though his recent teams haven’t come through, Westbrook has already played in four Conference Finals.
Sure he’s also the worst volume three point shooter ever and takes more than a couple things off the table, but he brings a whole buffet to start with. Westbrook ranks top 30 all time in points per game — that part’s not a surprise — but he’s also third best ever in assist percentage, behind only legendary passers John Stockton and Chris Paul.
