Russell Westbrook ties Oscar Robertson’s NBA record triple double mark Saturday May 8 & passes him May 10, 2021

Jesuit News Sports

For years I have taught about scripted ‘triple doubles’ and the number 58, so of course Russell Westbrook ties Oscar Robertson for most triple doubles all-time, on May 8, 2021.

He did it 47 years after Robertson, who accomplished the mark in ’74 *Indiana = 47 *D.C. = 47 *Time = 47
This game was also played 137 days after the season began *Indiana = 137 *Washington D.C. = 137

Triple Double = 58 (May 8, or 5/8)

The May 8 accomplishment came 177 days after his birthday. *Jesuit Order = 177

Then, on Monday, May 10, 2021, Russell Westbrook passed Oscar Robertson, recording his 182nd triple double. Notice how 182 equates with ‘Oscar Robertson’.

And notice he did it with ‘Washington’ on the 130th day of the year, May 10, 2021.

Furthermore, it was 139 days after this season began, December 22, 2020.

    Westbrook on May 8 tied Robertson with an assist to teammate Bradley Beal (= 42 and 87) who scored the 87th point of the game for the Wizards. 181 is the 42nd prime number. Oscar Robertson went to high school in Indianapolis (= 201), and that’s where his record was tied. Westbrook’s 182nd triple-double was 167 days after Robertson’s birthday. 167 is the 39th prime. The Big O = 39. Westbrook played for the ‘UCLA Bruins’ = 39. Keep in mind that current UCLA coach Mick Cronin came from Cincinnati. He was born on July 17, like 17/7.
