Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook has been named the NBA’s Western Conference Player of the Week for the first week of the season.

Westbrook leads the NBA in scoring, averaging 38.7 points a game.

He’s averaging a triple double through three games, with 12.3 rebounds and 11.7 assists a game.

His assists average leads the league as well.

Westbrook led OKC to wins over Philadelphia, Phoenix, and the L.A. Lakers in the opening week.

Westbrook is the first player to record two triple-doubles in the first three games of the season since Magic Johnson in the 1982-83 season.

He is also the first player in NBA history to tally at least 100 points, 30 rebounds and 30 assists through his team’s first three games.
