Twitter reactions: NBA family congratulates Russell Westbrook for setting NBA's all-time triple-double record

Russell Westbrook is the NBA's new triple-double king.

By recording a triple-double against the Hawks in a close loss in Atlanta, the former league MVP brought up his 182nd career triple-double - the most in NBA history. He moved past Oscar Robertson's all-time tally of 181, a 47-year-old record.

The 'Big O' was the first of many all-time players including Magic Johnson, LeBron James, Jason Kidd that were followed by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and Westbrook's family to congratulate the 'Brodie' on the historic feat.

Last but not least. Where it all began - Oklahoma City.

What followed was a huge group of NBA players - current and retired - taking to Twitter to share their reaction to Westbrook's superhuman achievement.
