Last night Russell Westbrook put his name in the record book along the likes of Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson, & Isaiah Thomas. 25 points, 20 assists, & 10 rebounds. According to stats, this is the first triple double with those totals since Magic for the Lakers in 1988. Westbrook was born in 1988. Whenever you can be on a list with Oscar Robertson & Magic you know you did something special in Basketball.
Here’s a name no one talks about in HOCKEY. Andy Bathgate Hall of Fame for the N.Y. Rangers passed away in Feb. He played when there was only six teams and scored 272 goals. That record was not broken until 73’. He played over 12 seasons from 50’ to early 60’s. Named to the All N.H.L. Squad 4 times when his rivals at right wing were Maurice Richards & Bernie Geoffrion of Montreal & Gordie Howe of the Redwings. The Rangers were not very good and only made the playoffs 4 times when he was playing.
It was said, “That he was a graceful skater, superb puck handler, & passer who had one of hockey’s hardest slap shots and highly accurate wrist shot.” He got no garbage goals. He won the most valuable player (The Hart Trophy) in 59’ scoring 40 goals. Was elected to the Hall of Fame in 78’. He was traded in 64’ to the Maple Leafs and scored the first goal in a 4-0 clinching game 7 over the Red Wings in that years Stanley Cup Finals. He later played for the Red Wings and Penguins. He finished with 349 goals and 642 assists in 17 seasons. His #9 that he wore as a Ranger was retired in 2009 and hangs from the rafters in the Garden.
