We have been told that no one has averaged a triple-double in the NBA since Oscar Robertson*. “The Big O” went for 31 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds per night exactly fifty years ago.
Did you know that Magic Johnson did average a triple-double over his first four playoff seasons. From 1980-1983 he played 48 playoff games and posted a line of 17.8 points, 10.3 rebounds and 10.3 assists.
The Los Angeles Lakers won their first two of five Magic-era titles over this span.
*note that Jason Kidd averaged 15-11-11 in twelve playoff games for the ’07 Nets
