Magic had 138 career triple doubles. The closest current player has 38. Is this an accomplishment that will ever be surpassed? I thought Jason Kidd had potential to do it but that's about it....


( Oscar Robertson has more btw but I'm talking modern era basketball)

Wtf? No. Not unless Giannis develops a BBall iq off the charts or Westy or Steph plays until they are 50.

Lebron's gonna average 20/10/10 this year so he should close the gap some.

Magic is at 138

Jason Kidd finished at 107, not so far behind. It requires longevity, obviously.

Which makes it so much more astounding that magic pulled that off in only 12 and a half seasons

Exactly. I got spoiled man, thinking back it seems Magic just got one whenever he felt like it.

Nobody is ever going to beat that.

I'd be curious to know how pace affected his ability to get triple doubles. Specifically, to what degree.

Well Showtime in the 80's definitely played a part but he was still doing it when the team got older and was playing half court as well.

I don't think so. Magic was just too beastly.

I was more talking the league in general because Jason Kidd played a pretty fast pace himself in the 00's with the Nets running the break.

I'd also like to know how many games where Magic was like 1 assist or 1 rebound away. I imagine it would be quite a bit.

Magic's teams ran at a pace of roughly 104 possessions per game, so not a crazy speed. The biggest reasons we will never see it again, is how many 6'9" dudes can pass like that haha? At that size, rebounding was easy for him, compared to any other PG we have ever seen. Hell, even Oscar's huge triple double average seasons, they played 20 more possessions a game than the Lakers from 82-89', Magic was a freak dude.

Not only was he 6'9, but he was also playing against shorter PGs (on average) than today's.

Actually I think guards and small forwards were shorter too.

nah, players in the 80's were about the same height as now. But he was a legit 6'9", so he had 6" on most the guys he was going head to head against. Besides, 6'9" is 6'9", he was one of the best rebounders of all time for his position, and much of it had to do with his height.

There's going to be someone down the road who end up being better than the players in the past. Records will get broken. Either tomorrow or 50 years from now.

LeBron. He can do anything. Someone in the other thread said that they see LeBron averaging 30/15/12

That's lowballing him. At least 35/21/16. He will see no dip in rebounds being on a team with Love,TT and Anderson. Also his team will carry most of the load and make thier shots and boost his assist. He will just score 35 in the last quarter. He is a men among boys. All-ready he is a top one player ever. Plus he gets ton of threads on here so you know he's good. Also he's already been to the finals five times and won twice! That's a outstanding winning percentage. I love Lebron, he is just...wow. Wish he would have been on the lakers instead of Kobe (I'm a ballhog and have six rings. And run everyone off and completely carry the league.)Bryant.
