Default Is Lebron capable of averaging a double double in the season?

It’s just odd how Lebron is touted as this triple double stats machine when not only did 6 ft 3 Westbrook average a triple double twice, but Lebron has never even got close to a double double. He’s never averaged even 9 rebounds once. Bird averaged 10 rebounds a game... while playing with 2 great big men. Lebron has never even averaged 9? With his lack of defensive effort, he should be able to have plenty of energy, especially since he plays for stats.

I donít get it. David Lee has averaged a double double. Andris Biedrins has averaged a double double. Lebron is 6 ft 9 with an armor of steel. Bird did it 6 times or so. Look at Barkley getting all those boards...

Yep, very unimpressive.

Westbrook exposed LeStatpad for all its worth and now everyone knows how to do it.

Of course he could average a triple double if he wanted to.

Probably not. He's handling the ball a bit less and he doesn't have many knock down shooters. Also for his size and athleticism he's always been an underachiever when it comes to rebounds and as good as his court vision is I've never thought he was ever close to being the best passer in the league as some fans say. Maybe the best passing forward.

Westbrook is basically a rich mans Lebron.


Imagine Westbrook teaming up with #2 and #4 in PER. I am sure he would then win more than 33% of his finals. he also has better stats so there's no reason why Lebron should be ranked ahead of him alltime

I like Westbrook he's one of my favorite players but this is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard

Well ok. Westbrook has no stiff arm and he didn't get the same superstar treatment by the refs and Adam Silver.


But it's not that far off to think that Westbrook would've won at least 2 titles with the same miami heat team as well. Probably 3 because i don't think he would choke as much as Lebron did in 2011.

Even better, imagine Westbrook having 2 future hall of famers and league MVPs on his team like Harden and Durant alongside a prime defensive beast, 3 times All NBa denfesive 1st team and 2 time blocked shots leader in Ibaka

Who cares about future hall of famers and future league MVPs?

Harden was a 16ppg bench warmer back then.

He was the 6th Man of the Year when they went to the Finals in 2012.

OKC had 3 All-NBA players plus 6MOY and they choked.

His 16ppg (off the bench!) was a higher avg. than both Wade and Bosh in the 2014 Finals...
