Russell Westbrook has one of the best seasons in NBA history, averaging 31.7 points, 10.0 assists and 10.6 rebounds, but that is not goog enough for Marc Cuban.
Last year, he said that Russell Westbrook is not a superstar, but now he said that Russell doesn’t deserve to be in the MVP conversation.
Mark Cuban says MVP is a toss-up between James Harden and LeBron James. Where is Russell Westbrook in that mix? "He's not."

On the other side, Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said that Russell Westbrook never slows down.
“It’s amazing what Westbrook is doing. He just has boundless energy. He never slows down. His wide-ranging skills to do all these different things, and the tenacity that you have to have to average that many rebounds, is just impossible to describe. I’m in awe of it.”
After 30 triple-doubles so far, it’s fair to say that Westbrook is at least in the MVP conversation, and probably James Harden or Russell will win this award.
