Russell Westbrook officially made history on Friday in Phoenix, clinching a triple-double average for the 2017 season. The likely NBA MVP’s accomplishment is truly monumental. Only Oscar Robertson has averaged double figures in points, rebounds, and assists, and did so way back during the 1962 campaign. With three games left before the playoffs start, Westbrook’s stats stand at 31.7 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 10.4 assists, along with 1.7 steals.
The moment lends even more hype to the upcoming Air Jordan 31 “Why Not?” release, a sneaker ode to Westbrook’s amazing run that combines classic Jordan styling with the OKC star’s iconoclastic style sense. The release is also a treat for fans who’ve wanted a true RW player exclusive – the shoe is all Air Jordan 31 up top with an Air Jordan 30 sole, the exact setup Westbrook has preferred playing in throughout this season.
Air Jordan 31 “Why Not?” releases April 29th for $200 at select Jordan retailers.
