t Westbrook is doing, even if he played his prime in todays more perimeter-oriented and offensive-minded NBA.No. No, Kidd said. Antworten

The battle for the Premier League title has gripped the nation. Can Leicester City pull off one of the most remarkable shocks in history? Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City also remain in the hunt for the crown as the season enters the final straight.Spurs sit five points off the summit in second, while Arsenal are eight adrift and Man City - who have a game in hand - are 10 points behind Leicester. Premier League table Team Games played Points Goal difference Leicester 29 60 21 Tottenham 29 55 27 Arsenal 29 52 16 Man City 28 50 21 Ahead of this weekends Premier League action - including Manchester Citys trip to Norwich and Leicesters Monday night clash with Newcastle, which are both live on Sky Sports - Jamie Redknapp has his say on the title contenders…Leicester Leicester are entering uncharted territory, says Jamie Redknapp Leicester have risen to every challenge theyve faced this season. And when theyve had set-backs theyve bounced back quickly. There was a great quote from Riyad Mahrez, saying the team felt more pressure when they were battling relegation than they do right now. Thats a great position to be in.However, one thing we dont know about this Leicester team is how they will react as they edge closer to potentially pulling off an incredible title win. Theyre not Manchester United in the Ferguson era. Theyre not Chelsea when they were winning league titles. This is uncharted territory.We havent seen this before. Its amazing. Ive grown up always believing the big clubs, with the most money, win. Even Blackburn, when they won the title, spent a lot of money and had the best players. This is like no other. But things can change quickly in football. When Liverpool beat Man City a few years ago, when Brendan Rodgers side were going for the title, you thought theyd win the league. Then boom, it all changed.Its difficult to put your finger on what changes it but its that momentum shift which happens so quickly in sport, not just football. It happens in tennis, in golf. When you think someones won, things can still turn around.There are still 27 points to play for and thats an awful lot of points - and a lot of time in which a lot of mistakes could be made. But all of the neutrals in the country are behind Leicester. Tottenham Tottenham must put recent setbacks behind them Mauricio Pochettino got some stick for making a number of changes against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League on Thursday but they can turn their focus back to the Premier League now, knowing they have the chance to make history and change their club forever.Spurs are right in the mix for this title and if theyd turned a few of their 10 draws into wins, theyd be top of the table. Im expecting them to finish in the top four now - it would be a capitulation if they missed out on qualifying for the Champions League. But can they get back on track after some disappointing results? The title race run-in We analyse the title rivals run-ins to see who will emerge victorious... Theyve hit a small bump in the road, with defeat at West Ham followed by a draw against Arsenal, after the Gunners were reduced to 10 men, and the loss at Dortmund. But this is the time of the season where everyones stuttering.We are going to see some strange results, particularly now teams at the bottom are fighting for survival. The important thing for Tottenham is to not get stressed by whats happened in the last couple of weeks. Theyve not picked up any major injuries, Jan Vertonghen is coming back and they have a great chance to get back to winning ways at Aston Villa on Sunday.Arsenal Alexis Sanchezs equaliser against Tottenham could be key Theres a lot of negativity around Arsenal and Arsene Wenger in the press and in the stands at the moment but they cant be ruled out of this title race.In fact, I think their result at White Hart Lane could have changed everything for them. If they were beaten at Tottenham, it could have been so damaging to the manager - who you felt was under pressure - and the players. Alexis Sanchez was out of form, theyd picked up a couple of injuries - but now theyre back on track and, with the FA Cup this weekend, have the opportunity to rest some key men. Pundits player of the year The Soccer Saturday pundits pick their player of the season They are going to be knocked out of the Champions League by Barcelona - not many people doubt that - and that will free them up to focus on the Premier League and the FA Cup, should they get past Watford.They will drop points and slip up. But this season is like Rocky I, when theyre knocking each other down and getting back up again. The last team standing will lift the trophy.Man City Dont count Man City out yet, says Redknapp If you put yourself into the Leicester dressing room right now - wheres the danger? Which team do you fear the most?Tottenham havent won in three, including the cup games, and how damaging will that defeat against Dortmund be? Aston Villa looks like a gimme for them but they have tough games to come. Theres a good gap to Arsenal, and they also have some big away games ahead of them. But Man City - because theyve been there, seen it, done it - they would be the team that bother me the most, if I was a Leicester player. I know they will still be seven points behind if they win their game in hand but you look at their squad and think surely theyre going to go on a run.Im not saying City will go on a run but, if youre a Leicester player, thats what youll be thinking. Theoretically they could win every game and win the league. Until they cant mathematically do it I would still be nervous of them. ConclusionIts too tight to call who will win this Premier League. This season has made fools of us all. Leicester are five points clear - last season Chelsea would have been 1/5 to win the title from that position but Leicester are 11/10 with Sky Bet. That shows even the bookies arent sure whats going to happen.Its so fascinating - this weekend there are games youd expect the top teams in the title race to win but would it surprise you if there was an upset?The Premier League might not be the highest standard in Europe but it is the number one for excitement. There arent many leagues where you think a team in the bottom three could shock a team in the title race. Thats what makes the Premier League so special. No team has won the Premier League by spending the amount Leicester have. That makes you start having doubts and thinking someone else will rise to the top. But maybe not this year… Jamie Redknapp All of the neutrals would love Leicester to do it because its a great story. Its a wake-up call for other teams, in terms of finding players in lower leagues and their spending policy.The problem is its never happened before. No team has won the Premier League by spending the amount Leicester have done and that makes you start having doubts and thinking someone else will rise to the top. But maybe not this year…Who do you think will win the Premier League? Let us know using the message boards or by tweeting @SkyFootball Also See: The title race run-in Leicester champs, Spurs fourth?

"Im in a really good position for tomorrow," Scott said. Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd, one of the foremost triple-double artists in NBA history, believes Russell Westbrook can average a triple-double this season.Kidd, who is third all time in triple-doubles with 107, told ESPN that he could only dream of doing what Westbrook is doing right now. He has been most impressed with Westbrooks ability to win during his streak of five straight triple-doubles -- and Westbrooks ability to do it all without Kevin Durant.It can be done, Kidd said of averaging a triple-double in a season, a feat not seen since Oscar Robertson did so in 1961-62. I have always said I think it could be done. You got to have a special player, and I think we are looking at a special player.Westbrook is on a tear that hasnt been seen in decades. He became the first NBA player to record five consecutive triple-doubles since Michael Jordan did so in 1989. On Sunday, the Thunder point guard had 28 points, 17 rebounds and 12 assists in a 101-92 win over New Orleans. Westbrook also had 10 turnovers, which made him the first since Kidd in 2000 to register double digits in all four categories.Westbrook headed into Mondays Thunder game in Atlanta averaging 31 points, 11.3 assists and 10.8 rebounds in 21 games this season. No NBA player has averaged a triple-double in a season since Robertsons 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists per game in 1961-62.He is athletic, Kidd said. [But you need] guys scoring the ball [on your team]. Assists is hard to get. But understand he is doing this without KD. That is what makes it even more special.Kidd ranks third on the all-time triple-double list behind Robertson (181) and Magic Johnson (138). Westbrook is currently sixth, with 47 career triple-doubles, and is 12 behind Larry Bird (59). Wilt Chamberlain is in fourth with 78.The Thunder (13-8) have won all five games during Westbrooks triple-double streak and, heading to Atlanta, were 8-2 when the point guard notches a triple-double.Winning with the triple-double, that means you have controlleed the whole game, Kidd said.dddddddddddd. A lot of times, you can have a triple-double, but winning and having a triple-double is the most impressive.Of the 10 players in NBA history with at least 30 triple-doubles, only Wilt Chamberlain (69-9) has a better win percentage than Westbrooks. The Thunder are 41-6 when Westbrook records a triple-double, according to Elias. Westbrooks 10 triple-doubles in 21 games this season are the fastest anybody has reached 10 since Robertson needed only 12 games in 1961.Magic Johnson, who averaged a double-double in points and assists nine times in his career, came close in 1981-82 to averaging a triple-double. That season, he finished with 18.6 points, 9.5 assists and a career-high 9.6 rebounds.In his 19 seasons, Kidd averaged a double-double three times. He averaged 16.9 points, 10.8 assists and 6.8 rebounds in the lockout-shortened, 50-game 1998-99 season. He averaged 14.3 points, 10.1 rebounds and 7.2 assists the next season for the Suns. In 2007-08, Kidd averaged 10.8 points, 10.1 assists and 7.5 rebounds.Kidd played from 1994 to 2013, with much of his career spent during a time when the game was considered to be more physical, with more dominant big men to contend with on the boards. Even so, the future Hall of Famer said he would not be able to duplicate what Westbrook is doing, even if he played his prime in todays more perimeter-oriented and offensive-minded NBA.No. No, Kidd said. He is athletic. I wasnt athletic like that. You put basketball IQ, thinking the game and then you put it with what he is doing athletically ... It is like LeBron. He is another one that can do it. For me, it was always the scoring part that was the hardest.The way the game is being played, shooting a lot more 3s, theres a lot more rebounds to be had. But he is playing at a very high level. He also doesnt get enough credit for his basketball IQ.
