Twitter is still processing Russell Westbrooks' triple-double in his regular-season debut with the Washington Wizards. The former MVP posted the stat line he's renowned for by the end of the third quarter.

The veteran point guard was traded to the Wizards over the 2020 offseason after just one year with the Houston Rockets. Some were quick to point out the fact Russell wanted out after Houston's collapse in the NBA playoff bubble in Orlando.

A lot of Westbrook and Wizards fans were high on Russell's debut, despite the 107-116 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.

A few Sixers fans couldn't help but point out the loss despite Russell's effort.

But even Westbrook haters were clowned by Wizards and Russ fans alike.

It will be interesting to see if the new addition of Westbrook can bring some winning to D.C. With the Rockets' regular-season opener postponed, it will be interesting to evaluate the trade once John Wall makes his debut.
