I was just looking up the last time someone recorded a Quadruple Double after Kyle Lowry's 19-8-8-7 game today and I was surprised to see that this hasn't been done since David Robinson in 1994. So who do you think will be the next to do this? My choice would be Westbrook since IMO he's the best player in the game and seems capable getting the rebounds/points and assists out of way in less than a half. Who do you got?

The homer in me says Nerlens or MCW will be able to get close at some points in their careers. Or Rondo. MCW or Rondo with steals. Nerlens with blocks.

Nerlens is a wannabe Anthony Davis. Totally forgot about him. Will be interesting to see how Sixers do. Embiid looked rather "healthy" with that dunk he did and Noel has been rather amazing the past few games. I actually think Sixers are a great team to play for. If Noel/Embiid are healthy, they could be the next twin tower front court. Tony Wroten will be a 15/5/5 player soon. Great future.

Who is the fourth to do it?

I remember Nate Thurmond did it in the late sixties. I think he did it with points, rebounds, assists, and blocks.

Alvin Robertson, former stud defensive player and current career criminal, did it with, I think, points, rebounds, assists, and steals (he may have had the fastest hands I've ever seen - he started wearing sweat bands around his wrists so the refs could see his hands better - Jordan said he and Dumars were the only two guards who gave him trouble defensively). It is a shame he is such a thug today because it is hard to remember what a fine player he was.

After Robinson who was the next?

One thing to keep in mind is that only in the seventies did they start keeping close watch over a lot of stats. We know that Oscar Robertson AVERAGED triple doubles one season, but we don't know how many triple doubles he had in his career or if he ever had a quadruple double. Robertson would have had an unbreakable record in assists if they were recorded in his day as they are today. In the sixties, you had to make a pass that led directly to a score. Today they are a lot more lax about what it means to "lead to a score." Robertson was also probably the greatest rebounding guard in NBA history and was an outstanding scorer. It was noting for him to have a game where he scored 36, had 17 rebounds, dished out 13 assists, had 5 blocks, and 7 steals.

Didn't someone have a sort of a quadruple double by having 10 turnovers to go with points, rebounds, and assists?

Anyway, I don't remember the fourth. I just remember Nate, Robertson, and Robinson.

But getting it is all a matter of luck. Two players from the eighties who might have done it but didn't were Larry Bird and Sidney Moncrief. Both in at least one season led their team in points, rebounds, and assists, Bird as a forward and Moncrief as a guard (though his style of play was more like a small forward). Magic was another who might have done it but didn't. The problem is the 4th stat is so hard. A great shot blocker like Thurmond can maybe some day do it, but Bill Russell, who was the greatest shot blocker and rebounder of all time never did it (though he still holds the record for highest rebounds per minutes played and blocked shots per minutes played, but he simply didn't try to score and despite being maybe the second greatest outlet passer ever (after Wes Unseld, who is hands down the best ever at that) the offense for the Celtics didn't flow through him like it did with Chamberlain. And Chamberlain never did it, though he frequently had triple doubles (people forget what a great passer he was).

So more than anything it is luck. Michael Jordan never did it, though he was capable of ten steals like Robertson was. Same with Scottie Pippen.

If anyone is gonna do it, its Russell Westbrook.

And too bad they started counting blocks that late in NBA, because I bet Wilt Chamberlain was the king of quadruple doubles. Probably had hundred of them.

03-14-2015, 06:15 AM
Westbrook will get one with points, Rebs, assists, and turnovers

LOL. I was going to say this.



Better yet.. it's only been done four times.

That we know of. I mean I bet Wilt had a few. I think Tim had one as well in that series against the Nets, I swear they must've not miscounted his blocks haha.



Personally I can't see Westbrook doing it, when is he ever going to get 10 steals or 10 blocks?

Anyone on a good night could get 10 points or 10 rebounds. So what we need to look at is steals/blocks and assists. You're far more likely to get 10 blocks than 10 steals.

That said, I think the best chance we have of seeing a Quadruple Double in todays game is with Davis. I think the next best chance is Cousins and then Ibaka.

If I absolutely had to pick a non-big man. Kawhi would be my dark horse pick. His high (in one game) for assists this season is 7, for blocks is 6, rebounds are 15 and for steals is 5. I could see him pulling off a 14-10-10-10 sort of game with increased minutes.

Well the easy triple double is points, rebounds, assists. So picking a player will they get the quadruple double with steals or blocks? Big men can get the blocks. Last time I remember a quadruple double was with Hakeem.

I'd say WB, easy enough for him to get pts+reb+ast so he only has to get 10 steals. No easy task mind you but without KD he has a better shot of getting it.

No TOs do not count. What are you going to do if you're a few TOs short, just start passing the ball to the other team? There's no skill involved there.

How many triple doubles did Anthony Davis have this season? Its just a little bit funny that you all mention a guy to record a quadruple double, who only averages 1.8 assists per game.

Jeffy25
03-14-2015, 10:46 PM
Robinson did it in 94
Hakeem did it in 90
Alvin Robertson did it in 86

These are the only three times it has happened since 86

Kirilenko in 06 had a 15/11/8/8 - P/R/A/B game
Webber was two assists short in a game in 99
Hakeem was one assist short in another game in 90, and Robinson was 2 blocks short in another game in 94

In 02, Metta World Peace needed one more board, assist, and two more steals in a game
Mookie Blaylock needed two more boards in a game in 98
Drexler was one assist short twice, and one board short once
Bird was two steals short in 85
Michael Ray Richardson was a steal short in 85

It's just an unlikely thing to ever actually accomplish. Even if a player gets the 10 blocks of steals (which is the hardest thing to do I would argue), to still do that with a triple double is just insane.

As far as current players that could arguably accomplish it, I don't think there really is anyone that fits that profile, I would probably guess a big man that gets double doubles at a high frequency, because you can always have that one night where you get the 10 assists, or the 10 blocks/steals.

Jason Kidd would have been a good guess as someone who could have done it, but I guess he never did.

Jeffy25
03-14-2015, 10:49 PM
I guess Anthony Davis would make some sense.


Btw, Mario Chalmers on 2/20 had 6 boards, 8 steals, 7 assists and 13 points.

Kind of an unlikely guy to get anywhere close....he played 37 minutes, and Shabazz had a 7 turnover night, imagine if Mario had played more minutes?

Jeffy25
03-14-2015, 10:55 PM
Just realized that Westbrook has 8 Triple Doubles this season, I guess he would be a good guess. He hasn't topped 4 steals in any of those games, but if he could knock a 10 steal game, then he is a good guess.

Rondo, Harden, and MCW each have 3 Triple Doubles this season.


Note, Whiteside had a triple double this year with 0 assists (12 blocks, 13 boards, 14 points on 1-25)




I said Anthony Davis' name above, but he hasn't even had a triple double yet in his career (was one block short in a game in Oct and was one block and one board short in Nov of 13)

Some anectdotal stuff about the subject and how close Dream was to 2 quadruple doubles within a couple of weeks of each other.

http://mentalfloss.com/article/27922/hakeem-olajuwons-phantom-quadruple-double


The NBA very briefly had a fifth quadruple-double in its record books, though. On March 3, 1990, Olajuwon of the Houston Rockets absolutely dissected the hapless Golden State Warriors en route to a 129-109 blowout. Olajuwon ended the game with a monstrous triple-double stat line: 29 points, 18 rebounds, and 11 blocks.

Of the current players I can see AD, KD, or Lebron doing it.

03-15-2015, 10:59 AM
Right now, Joakim Noah is the only player who has gotten into double digits with points, rebounds, assists and blocks I think, though not in the same game. He'd be my pick.

AD is an obvious pick when he learns to make plays. He takes care of the ball well and passes well, but doesn't make plays the way Noah and Gasol do.


It is possible that either Curry, CP3 or MCW could pull it off with steals. All three of those guys have gotten double-digits in rebounds and could get a boatload of steals on a good night.

Lebron would probably be the most likely to do it. He passes, he is good enough defensively to get the blocks or steals. We know he can score and he is athletic enough to grab ten boards.

Problem is, I don't think its possible to do in a game unless you are completely focused on doing it. If lebron dialed in on each of those stat lines with zero regard for winning, selfishly he could probably do it. But to have it happen naturally over the course of a game is extremely unlikely.

Nah, LeBron can't do it. Ten steals or ten blocks? LeBron James has never done either of those. To do it all simultaneously? He definitely isn't capable of that. Anthony Davis should have had it done. He had ten minutes to get three assists and two blocks. In those ten minutes, he only got a block.

If you deflect a pass nad teammate gets the ball as I know is basically considered as a pass. So you stole the ball and passed, sort of, so you get the steal.

Steals:

A steal is made when a defender's aggressive action causes a turnover by either taking the ball away from the offensive player, intercepting a pass, or deflecting the ball away.

Key: The steal is always credited to the defender who initially disrupted the ball. It is never given to his teammate who corralled or ultimately recovered the ball.

Example: Kobe Bryant drives toward the hoop and the defender guarding him, Arron Afflalo, deflects Bryant's dribble without outright taking the ball from Bryant. The ball becomes loose and there's a scramble eventually culminating in Ty Lawson finally recovering the ball and running off for a fast break. Arron Afflalo will be given the steal, NOT Ty Lawson. Afflalo initiated the chain of events the result of which was a turnover -- even though the final benefactor was Lawson -- and is therefore given due credit for the steal.

10 steals is just crazy. IMO Anthony Davis and Giannis Antentokounmpo are the only guys with the game to do it. Giannis is 7 ft tall, he might be able to get the blocks and he runs the offense a lot as a point forward so he might be able to get the assists.

Except, again, his career high in assists is 7, which he just did the other night, and he's never had a triple double, or double digit blocks


the potential is there, obviously. But there are some guys like Westbrook that very well could be more likely, considering their propensity to getting triple doubles.

True however assists are easier to accumulate than steals or blocks (as evidenced by the way more times people have gotten 10+ assists than steals or blocks) so I actually think it favors Anthony Davis in that it is easier, IMO, for a guy who routinely gets a lot of points, rebounds, blocks and steals to have a night where he is on fire passing it and accumulate 10 assists than it would be for a guy who gets a lot of points, rebounds and assists to get a lot of steals or blocks.

Also, we have to consider Anthony Davis is only 22 years old. He will almost certainly get better (which is a scary prospect). Durant's first 4 seasons he was at 2.7 APG, his last 4 were at 4.5. Scary prospect.

True however assists are easier to accumulate than steals or blocks (as evidenced by the way more times people have gotten 10+ assists than steals or blocks) so I actually think it favors Anthony Davis in that it is easier, IMO, for a guy who routinely gets a lot of points, rebounds, blocks and steals to have a night where he is on fire passing it and accumulate 10 assists than it would be for a guy who gets a lot of points, rebounds and assists to get a lot of steals or blocks.

Also, we have to consider Anthony Davis is only 22 years old. He will almost certainly get better (which is a scary prospect). Durant's first 4 seasons he was at 2.7 APG, his last 4 were at 4.5. Scary prospect.

Great argument

Steals:

A steal is made when a defender's aggressive action causes a turnover by either taking the ball away from the offensive player, intercepting a pass, or deflecting the ball away.

Key: The steal is always credited to the defender who initially disrupted the ball. It is never given to his teammate who corralled or ultimately recovered the ball.

Example: Kobe Bryant drives toward the hoop and the defender guarding him, Arron Afflalo, deflects Bryant's dribble without outright taking the ball from Bryant. The ball becomes loose and there's a scramble eventually culminating in Ty Lawson finally recovering the ball and running off for a fast break. Arron Afflalo will be given the steal, NOT Ty Lawson. Afflalo initiated the chain of events the result of which was a turnover -- even though the final benefactor was Lawson -- and is therefore given due credit for the steal.

Does a similar rule apply to tipped rebounds as well? All this time I was under the impression that whoever had possesion at the end of a tip/scuffle would get the benefit of a rebound/steal. Good info though, learn something new every day.

Lebron could get it.

Points, Assists, Rebounds, Turnovers.

A rebound is credited when a player controls the recovery of the ball after a field goal attempt has been missed. Unlike with steals, the credit for a rebound is given to the player who "controls" the ball. "Control" is key here. If a loose ball is tapped up in the air by several players, the rebound is credited to the final player who ultimately corrals the ball.

It is important to note that you don't have to come down with the ball in order to be credited with a rebound. If a player taps the ball up in the air and mid-tap decides to pass the ball to his teammate, the tapper is credited with a rebound if the statistician feels he had "control" over the ball before making the pass.


so blindly tapping it back won't count, but tipping it to a teamate does count. it is very hard to judge based on this evidence

That's why Tyson Chandler suddenly became a monster on the offensive boards. If it's a clean, direct tap-out to a teammate then you get the offensive rebound.
