Russell Westbrook is having a season for the ages with the Oklahoma City Thunder, becoming a triple-double machine that we haven't seen since the likes of Oscar Robertson.

Westbrook went on a huge streak of notching the triple-double stat line, but has gone three games since then without one. In the Thunder's 114-95 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday, Westbrook put up 27 points, six rebounds and five assists.

With all the talk of his stats, Westbrook explains how it is now getting on his nerves and why he doesn't really care for them.
“Honestly, man, people and this triple-double thing is kind of getting on my nerves, really. People think if I don't get it, it's like a big thing. When I do get it, it's a thing. If y'all just let me play – if I get it, I get it. If I don't, I don't care. It is what it is. I really don't care. For the hundredth time. I don't care. All I care about is winning, honestly. All the numbers s*** don't mean nothing to me.”
The Thunder are currently 9-3 whenever Westbrook has a triple-double, and 6-8 when he does not.
