I just don’t see any reason to think it’s wins OR statistics.

I think we both are arguing the same point. My only question is at what point do wins play into factor over stats and narrative? What if OKC lost a merely 4 or 5 more games and landed the 8 seed but Russ still cruised by averaging a triple double? What if circumstances dropped OKC out of the playoffs all together and Russ still put up historic numbers?
