Felt like I needed to comment on this for some reason.
Ricky Rubio got his first triple double and rotoworld called it a "monster", which I find misleading. It's a nice line no doubt, but to call it a monster is an exaggeration to me. He either needs more assists or boards, or at least supplement the triple double with some steals, blocks, and threes (he had one three and one block, zero steals, and 4 TOs). The funny part is that now that I'm looking at the stats, Noah's 21 boards in a triple double this season are the most, followed by 14 by Pierce, and then 13 by a few guys including Rubio. 14 assists was the most (tied by 3 players) and Rubio's 12 was second highest. His 21 points are pretty much dead in the middle for scoring. Noah, Hibbert, and Sanders were all triple doubles involving blocks though Noah had a second with assists as well.
Noah's 23 point, 21 rebound, 11 block, 1 assist, 3 steals, and 3 TO game while shooting 8-12 from the field and 7-9 from the line is probably the most valuable triple double followed by some nice gems from Lebron and Rondo.
Additionally it seemed like there were a decent amount of triple doubles this season, 35 to be exact, so I went digging to find my old thread from a few years back about triple doubles
and realized the average was 39 per season.
Oddly enough, to add to the fun facts, I found that Oscar Robertson Mr. Triple Double himself, holds the record for most triple doubles in a season with 41, which is obviously insane.
Basketball Reference now just added the ability to check triple double (or double double) in the Game Finder. A few years too late jerks!
