It’s a little disheartening that the ringer staff has so readily drunk the Simmons kool-aid on triple doubles being an arbitrary stat. Look up the all-time leaders in this category and you’ll see almost nothing but hall of famers or future hall of famers. Now look up true shooting percentage for this season (which apparently isn’t an arbitrary stat for some reason) and you’ll see Tyson Chandler and some dude named Lucas Nogueira in the top two spots. No one could tell you who won the MVP the last time Big O averaged a triple double, but over 50 years later his season hasn’t been forgotten.
