Each week, another one goes down, either for a game, a few weeks or the rest of the year. This has been a rough season for occupants of the league’s most important and glamorous position.

But while his point guard peers have struggled to stay in uniform and avoid the expected setbacks of a grueling and taxing season, Russell Westbrook continues to play on with those angry glares, high-stepping romps and fake gun holster celebrations for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

As the league’s reigning iron man, Westbrook not only stands above other point guards; he is far ahead of the rest of the league in terms of durability. The electrifying, eccentric, sometimes erratic but always exciting Westbrook has played an NBA-best 373 consecutive games, the longest active streak by more than 160 games.
