He led the NBA in uncontested defensive rebounds. A lot of the times he sags off the guy he's guarding, doesn't contest the shot and crashes the board while Kanter and Adams box out the opposing bigs. The entire team's gameplan was designed around getting him to average a triple double.
I said way back in December the triple double is a padded statistic today. The huge number of 3 point attempts creates long rebounds and guards have more rebounds than ever.
My main reason for making Westbrook the MVP is his durability this season. I thought for sure he'd break down over the course of the season. The fact that he averaged a triple double over the course of 82 games is amazing in my mind. And there really isn't another player who would be a slam dunk winner, so i think Westbrook should get it.

From Pinnacle sports....

Looks like slightly under 8-1 to win the east

And 28-1 to win it all

Betting the thunder at 300-1 looks like a very good value bet at this point

Yeah I saw that article as well when I was looking. Vegas Insider is great for spreads, use then all the time for the NFL.

Was trying to look for October numbers just prior to the season starting.

12-1 would have been a nice June bet !

I saw anywhere from 18-1 to 28-1 to win the championship. Eastern conference was 5-1 thru 10-1 depending on the Sportsbook around season start time.

20-1 seemed like too favorable betting odds given they were being deemed the 2nd or 3rd best team in the east.

There's 23 players with a triple double this year. Only 11 have been from guards. Ricky Rubio has always been an adept rebounder due to his freakishly long arms (even by NBA standards). I'll agree somewhat, as OKC designed their offense and defense around him getting triple doubles. However, outside of Westbrook and Harden (also had his offense tailored to him getting triple doubles) the case you're seeing more triple doubles is we are getting incredibly gifted passers in the form of big men (Jokic, Cousins, Griffin, etc) and jack of all trades types (like LeBron, Giannis, Durant, Green, etc.).

That was outstanding watching Kawhi and Conley go at it the last minute in regulation.

Harden hooked Gibson with his off hand while dribbling and immediately goes up for a 3....fouled called. Brilliant.

Go Jazz!

Would love to see a Utah-GS series. Certainly don't care to see a short-handed LAC against them

Nice article from Dion Waiters:

Pretty good reminder that you should hold off on judging people you don't really know


Liked this line...

Cannot stand the way Houston plays basketball, but it's mostly the refs/league fault for being dumb enough to allow it to continuously happen. Stop calling the god damn foul when Harden hooks onto the defender after a screen and launches a three. It's effing awful
