Russell Westbrook just completed his fourth straight triple-double in a row, the first to do so since Michael Jordan in 1989. He’s entered the conversion for MVP this year in a huge way, and has certainly been the fantasy basketball MVP. He’s averaging 52 fantasy points per game this year, good for best in the NBA. Fantasy owners who have drafted Russell Westbrook on DraftKings have already won $15.9 million this season, which is more than his 2014-2015 salary.
Unfortunately, Westbrook had his streak snapped last night as the Bulls defeated the Thunder. He only scored 43 points with 8 rebounds and 7 assists.
