Triple-Double Machines Going Back to the 1960's

Oscar Robertson is the only player in NBA history to average a triple-double.  Give him the benefit of rounding up and the Cincinnati Royal great produced 10-10-10 four straight years.

The drastic decline in pace of NBA games since the 1960's made it near impossible to put up double figure rebound & assist totals every night.  But lower the bar to 15 Points, 7 Rebounds & 7 Assists and we get a nice mix of guys representing various eras. 

Here is the full list of most 'near' triple-double seasons thanks to Basketball-Reference
