Russell Westbrook's 20-point, 20-rebound and 21-assist performance against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday sent shockwaves through the sports world.
One reason was because a 20-20-20 game had occurred just once in NBA history, previously. Another factor was cultural, with Westbrook honoring slain rapper and friend Nipsey Hussle, an L.A. native like himself.
From athletes, to pop figures, here's how people reacted on Twitter to Westbrook's achievement.

The fact that Russell Westbrook went out, in honor of Nipsey Hussle, and put up 20 points, 20 rebounds, and 20 assists, from a hood perspective, this goes down as one of the greatest sports feats of all time. pic.twitter.com/dxHxymZ1mM
