Lakers’ Rajon Rondo, Frank Vogel react to LeBron James’ triple-double feat
The Los Angeles Lakers extended their winning streak to five with a 112-107 win against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night, behind LeBron James’ record-setting performance. The four-time MVP put up 25 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists, making him the first player in NBA history to record a triple-double against all 30 teams.
Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo said he isn’t surprised that LeBron was able to accomplish such feat because of how good he is, per Ryan Ward of ClutchPoints.
“Just another one of the records. Another accolade. Another thing he’s done in history. Not a surprise but obviously he’s the 1st. No one’s ever done it, so kudos to him.”
But for Lakers head coach Frank Vogel, what LeBron achieved against OKC is unbelievable.
“It’s unbelievable. He’ll say it’s because he’s been in the league so long, but we all know that it’s because he’s remarkable. For him to be doing it as long as he’s been doing it, that’s how you knock out all 30 teams with a stat like that. I don’t know if that’ll ever get accomplished again.”
LeBron is playing extremely well this season, averaging 25.0 points, 7.9 rebounds, and a league-leading 11.1 assists per game. He’s one of the main reasons why the Lakers have the best record in the NBA right now.
James is already in his 17th year in the NBA and but he’s still playing at an elite level. If he’ll be able to keep his averages until the end of the season, he will definitely have a shot at winning his fifth league MVP honors.
