No debate left

Meanwhile, in the NBA ...

Russell Westbrook went for his 38th triple-double of the season last night, putting up 57 points, a record number of points for an NBA triple-double. He's now within striking distance of Oscar Robertson's season record of 41 triple-doubles, set in 1961-62 when Robertson became the only man in NBA history to average a triple-double for the season.

With eight games left in the season, Westbrook is about to become the second. He's averaging 31.8 points, 10.6 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game.

Some people are still debating whether he or James Harden (or LeBron James) should be the league MVP.

The Blob says the debate is over. If Westbrook becomes the first player in 55 seasons to average a triple-double, and only the second player ever to do so, he's your MVP. Period. Because history trumps everything else.

Or should, anyway.
