#SoleWatch: Westbrook Secures Second-Straight Triple-Double Season in Jordans

When it comes to singling out the NBA's best player, opinions vary across the board, but there's no arguing who's the best at filling stat sheets.

Once a seemingly impossible feat in the modern era, Russell Westbrook pulled down 20 rebounds Wednesday night (along with 6 points and 19 assists) to secure a second-straight season averaging a triple-double. Prior to Westbrook last season, the line had only been recorded by Oscar Robertson during the 1961-62 season.

Westbrook sealed the deal in the silver colorway of his debut performance signature sneaker, the Jordan Why Not Zer0.1. The shoe has generally received mixed reactions, but its place in history is now undeniable.

Last season, Jordan Brand celebrated Westbrook's triple-double average and MVP award with special sneaker releases, so it's possible a celebratory Why Not Zer0.1 is in the works.
