Courtesy of his red-hot triple-double streak over the past years, he is the only player in NBA history to have recorded multiple triple-doubles against every NBA franchise.
Westbrook is one of four active players in the top 10, with LeBron James ranked the next-highest at fifth with 99 triple-doubles. As the table shows, the other active players are James Harden and Nikola Jokic - both of whom could rise from their current spots of eighth and ninth, respectively.
