Oscar Robertson, PG
A triple-double is a term in the NBA defined as an individual performance in a game in which a player accumulates double-digit totals n any three of these categories: points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocked shots.
If there is a topic discussing triple-doubles, more times than not that discussion will include Oscar "The Big O" Robertson, whose is the career leader in triple-doubles with 181.
The Big O combined versatile play with great making to become one of the greatest players in NBA history. Paired with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in Milwaukee, the 1-2 punch of Oscar and KAJ is considered one of the best in NBA history.
Below are some of Robertson's awards:
- 1x NBA Champion (1971)
- 1x NBA MVP (1964)
- 12x NBA All-Star (1961-1972)
- 9x All-NBA First Team Selection (1961-1969)
- 2x All-NBA Second Team Selection (1970-1971)
- 1961 NBA Rookie of the Year
- 3x NBA All-Star Game MVP (1961, 1964, 1969)
- NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team
- 2x USBWA College Player of the Year (1959, 1960)
As I said before, rarely will you see a player who can score, rebound, and pass as well as The Big O. A role model to all players who wish to be "all-around", Oscar's legacy is one of those which will be very hard to repeat.
