Westbrook, the NBA’s all-time leader in triple-doubles, said “ain’t nobody like me.”

Westbrook is first in NBA history with 198 triple-doubles. He’s averaged a triple-double for an entire season four times. 

Jokic is fourth in NBA history with 129 triple-doubles. He’s never averaged a triple-double for an entire season. 

Westbrook has won one regular-season MVP. Meanwhile, Jokic has won two MVPs and one championship. Both players will be in the Hall of Fame one day. 

Westbrook has career averages of 21.7 points, 7.2 rebounds and 8.2 assists with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Washington Wizards, Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers. He’s made nine All-Star teams and nine All-NBA teams. 

Westbrook, 35, has won three assists titles and two scoring titles. The UCLA product made the 75th Anniversary Team in 2022. 

Jokic, who could win his third MVP and second championship this year, has career averages of 20.9 points, 10.7 rebounds and 6.9 assists. He’s made six All-Star teams and five All-NBA teams. 

Jokic, 29, won the 2023 Finals MVP Award after leading the Nuggets to the championship against the Miami Heat. 

Westbrook will go down as one of the greatest points guards in NBA history and Jokic will go down as one of the best centers of all time. 

Jokic may rank higher than Westbrook all time since he has a title and one more MVP. 

For the Clippers this season, Westbrook is averaging 11.1 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.4 assists. Meanwhile, Jokic is averaging 26.5 points, 12.4 rebounds and 9.0 assists for the Nuggets.
