Westbrook is averaging a triple double, you don't think that's historic? If the league is that shitty, how come nobody else has ever come this close to doing it in over 50 years?
in the words of mickey mantle. Hell, If I'd known 40–40 was going to be a big deal, I'd have done it every year!

same as the triple double. westbrooks triple doubles and a metro card will get him on a train. you know what is historic about westbrook how many times he will be bounced out of the playoffs with those triple doubles.

Still ignoring the context of my original post. This is what happens when you inflect your own views upon others statements as if they are fact.

So I'll try again, the skill levels they show are incredible, some of the feats they are pulling off are incredible. Never did I mention titles in that statement now did I? All of my heros from the 80's and 90's are in amazement as well at some of the things kids these days can pull off. Does that automatically mean I think they are greater than MJ, Magic, and Bird? Ponder that for a moment and you may see why people generally react so negatively to your posts.

For example, I marvel at how Marquez can control a bike in ways that nobody else on the grid can duplicate. I will watch a race from beginning to end that has no passes at all and everyone is separated by ten seconds, just to marvel at the skill being displayed. It doesn't quite replace the sheer spectacle of an intense battle, but I enjoy it anyway. My opinion on the matter is biased because I played basketball at a level that most never did, so there are things I can appreciate about ball at the NBA level that perhaps aren't that important to others.

I will root for Mavrick and Crazy Joe with my fingers crossed we can get a relevant American rider in the Big Boy class. If Jorge wins with Ducati I will cheer the bike and Gigi.

rossi has hurt motogp just as much as he has helped it. just think if jorge didnt go to ducati maverick would still be stuck on suzuki why? becasue the old man refuses to give up. he is not the number one rider at yamaha nor has he been since 2009. he quit yamaha because jorge was the number one rider. he blocked stoner from going to yamaha back in the day. the man was never ever about motogp he is about himself. always has been always will be.

contrary to popular belief rossi doesnt annoy me. HIS FANS DO. no matter what facts you show they dont care. its a cult following, that have all taken the facts vaccine. take 2015 for example. most are still crying that rossi had the championship stolen. it wasnt stolen it was earned by JLO with an amazing season who won every single meaningful statistic.

rossi fans will still be annoying but have no fear I WILL REMAIN HERE to debunk all the FAKE NEWS.

FYI Rossi is back 2017 with his second place Qatar finish
