View Full Version : quadruple double

will we ever see another quadruple double in the nba? it hasnt happened since hakeem and david robinson achieved it in the early 90's.

I think its conceivable considering guys like AK47 and shawn marion, but they are too far past their primes to do it anymore IMO unless its really one of those days where everything clicks.
Lebron is next in line I think but he cant steal that incredibly well nor block either.
Kidd is trip double king but is too old to get the steals and the blocks arent gonna happen either especially considering his position

I cant even think of another name that could compare with them at this time so yea, will it ever happen again or at least anytime soon, and who do you think has potential to do it?

Lastly, to be such a rare stat, why doesnt it automatically put you on legendary status? guys like clyde who were 1 assist or 1 stat short are never brought up for even getting that close and i just recently found out that hakeem and david robinson did it. It should put you on a super elite level right near Jordan if you can do it IMO talent wise

21 points, 20 rebounds, 10 assists, 8 blocks. Not bad hey?

I think CP3 is the closest player...he can make steals , assits, rebound and of course points.

IMO- in my opinion.

but yea, i thought cp3 but his rebounding will be his biggest challenge besides the steals. the steals alone would cause havock because every guard he'll be against has great handle. even though he got 3 steals a game, that pales considering most people rarely even get 7. considering he'd need an otherworldly night in 2 categories, i just couldnt suggest him

arlubas- i forgot all about tim duncan's doing that. thats exactly what i mean. even though he didnt get there, considering the stage and the difficulty of what he did get, its incredible that its never talked about

A guy like Camby could potentially do it too. Obviously, the blocks, boards and points he can do fairly simply, and he has put up double digit assists before...

Also, how about Josh Smith? The guy is a stat line freak. I wouldn't put a point/board/block and either steal or assist quad/double past him, the guy can do it all.

Question: If you have a stat line of 10 points, 10 OFFENSIVE boards, 10 DEFENSIVE boards and 10 blocks, does that count as a quadruple double?

Maybe timmy can still do it? Wait and see if Oden or Bynum can develope into a paint dominating center for the block shots. If everything went right and the planets lined up i could see Tyson Chandler on a lucky night.

you named 2 candidates. idk about camby. i doubt he'll get the touches for assists but its possible.

josh smith is incredibly capable. he had a game a while back that was off the charts, but he's so inconsistant. but when he is on, i think he is the most legit candidate

and no, rebounds count for just rebounds. it doenst matter the type

LeBron may average a triple double, but he's not an amazing stealer/blocker. He does get some here and there average over 1 steal/block per game but he's not good enough 2 rack up 10. Only big men that are good passers get close 2 the quadruple double. The 4th category is almost always blocks.

I believe Josh Smith once had a game where he was 6+ in 5 different cats (Points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals) or close to it so I would agree that he's the most likely candidate

RaptorsFAN11_12
09-21-2008, 03:42 PM
Feb 4th vs. Philly: He had 19 points, 9 assists, 9 blocks, 6 rebounds, and 4 steals. Although only grabbing 6 rebounds didn't technically make it close, he is obviously capable of getting 10 and he can clearly achieve it in 3 other cats so yah I'd for sure say he's the guy

Tim Duncan can do it IMO.

oshea225
09-21-2008, 04:09 PM
i dont remember the exact stats, but i remember one game last season chris paul was really close to a quadruple double. he had the points and the assists, and i think 9 assists 7 rebounds. 1 steal and a few missed shots away.

if i had to predict one player today who could get it, i'd definitely say lebron.

BRADfromOZ
09-21-2008, 04:18 PM
Josh Smith is the only player that i can see grabbing himself a quadruple double. Last season he manager season highs of 38 points, 22 rebounds, 10 assists and 9 blocks, so he'll have to have the game of his life to pull one(quadruple double) off.

Hawkeye15
09-21-2008, 04:19 PM

Dwight Howard

Probably the only young players who can do it.

IndyRealist
09-22-2008, 11:28 AM
Dwight Howard has neither the passing nor the quick hands for steals.

Lebron could do it, but he isn't asked to play much defense, mostly to put up points. Blocks/Steals would be a problem.

My money is on Josh Smith. If Yao every manages to say healthy, I wouldn't put it past him, especially playing in Rick Alderman's system. Camby might be able to as well, depending on how the Clippers use him.

Frank Costanza
09-22-2008, 11:35 AM
NEVER AGAIN, we were in the midst of greatness when OLAJUWON and ROBinson did it, those were prolific players who played a complete game, now in this new NBA its inconceivable for a center to get a triple double, or for a guard to block more than 2 shots in a game, ithink we saw great ness then and will remember those forever

It has to be one of those games, like 3-overtimes or something

I definately think assists are possible for Camby. Like everything else it is about everything coming together at the same time.

Last year:

Dec. 16: 9 assists
March 16: 10 assists (15 boards, 13pts, 4blk)
April 5: 11 assists

Unfortunately Camby won't have the same opportunities on Clippers as Denver. Denver scored so much which makes assists easier to come by.

Thank you. For a second I thought I was the only one not going with the conventional answer here.

Paul can't really grab 10 boards with Chandler / West on the team and 10 steals are hard to come by. Smith can get 10 boards being the primary rebounder, and on a good day 10 weakside blocked shots might be possible (obviously the hardest stat out of them all).

09-23-2008, 10:01 AM
I watched the Hakeem game when he did it. It was fun to watch. You just have to be everywhere at once it seems. He needed an assist and Kenny Smith nailed a three for it if I remember correctly. It is a very rare thing to see. But as for todays players I would have to say Howard has the best chance. Points/Boards/Blocks/Assits. But as it was said before everything has to go just right. You need one of those Forwards/Guards who drive the lane and have it blocked and go right back up with it and have them eat it again and again. Get 2-3 blocks just like that. And have you open guys be able to knock down that 12-15 footer for the assist.

also be hard to do but..

lebron can do anything i think - eventually.
jsmoove has a chance with rebounds, assists, blocks, pts.
paul with same except steals instead of blocks
also agreed with duncan/g. wallace possibly being able to.

3 of the 4 were big men. there were a few times when wings came close but thats it. its generally reserved for bigs because its easier for blocks than it is to get steals. thats why its only been done once with steals

Oops my bad the rebounds was only 5 but he certainly capable of getting a double figure rebounds. His career high on rebounds was 12 and he did it three times in his career already. The steals is already close as he had 9 steals last season against dallas. I think he is capable of this feat, time will tell

I would be really surprised if either of these players raked in a triple double this year, let alone a quadruple double. Obviously AK - 47 isn't the best offensive player in the world, so him scoring 10 Points in a game isn't even a given. He would also need have a LOT more touches then he does in his average game, for him to even have a chance at the 10 Assists. The Blocks/Steals would be pretty much impossible for him to get, because nobody in the NBA has 10 Blocks or Steals in a single game anymore. The 10 rebounds would be the easiest thing for him to rake in, IMO. Marion on the other hand, is a little to far past his prime for him to have a quadruple double type game. He's obviously not the defender he once was (so that would obviously make it a lot tougher for him to get the Steals/Blocks), it also wouldn't be easy for him to bring in 10 rebounds anymore, because of all of the other players that would be stealing rebounds from him on the Heat roster.

The only players who I believe have a realistic shot at a quadruple double are Lebron James, and Josh Smith.

Getting ten steals is extremely hard to come by. It will most likely come from a big man, but most star bigs these days can't pass. Josh Smith is probably most likely current player to do it since he's had a career quadruple double and is still pretty young.

Lebron has the ability to get a quadx2, but he won't get the opportunity. He's asked to do too much already. He will never defend the paint enough to get the blocks, nor will he guard ballhandlers enough to get the steals.

Ak-47 could get it

He doesnt even need the point

I remember one game where he could atleast 7 for points,rebounds,assist,steals and blocks so he wouldnt need points

He is one of the best defender in the league and always ranks top 10 in bpg and spg and he could get rebounds if he plays pf and points he should get atleast 10 if given the minutes

If Boozer informs the Jazz that he's not re-signing and they trade him mid-season, AK-47 gets the starting job and scoring load. Didn't he average 21ppg for the Russian National Team last year? He's one of the most underutilized players in the NBA.

It's possible that Paul does it. Last year, I was watching one of his games and he had like 20 points, 10 assists, 8 steals and like 4 rebounds or so going into the fourth quarter. He just needs to get his rebounding numbers up and get a few more steals. However, getting a quadruple double for any player now is incredibly hard and saying that, I doubt anyone does it.
