I never said “everyone” knows Russell won MVP in 1962.

I am a pretty big basketball fan and I had no idea Russell won MVP that year, but I definitely knew and heard of the season Oscar averaged a triple double. For most casual fans, if they know anything about Oscar, it is that he once averaged a triple double. Its an iconic stat, even if it is arbitrary. It is similar to breaking the single season home run record, or Wilt scoring 100 in a game, Ted Williams batting over 400 for a season, and Dimaggio having a 56 game hit streak.
