7. Oscar Robertson (1960-74)
If people refer to you as “Mr. Triple-Double,” then you realize you might be a fantastic all-around basketball player.
This is exactly what Oscar Robertson was: phenomenal.
If Robertson played during the 1980s or 90s, then many would have him in the top three of all-time. At the same time though, he only took home one NBA Championship, and that lack of winning success would be heavily scrutinized.
Check out these career marks: 25.7 points, 9.5 assists, 7.5 rebounds and .485 shooting from the floor per game. These marks are just plain silly.
Robertson owns the distinction of holding the most career triple doubles during a career. His 181 in just 14 seasons is 43 ahead of the next closes guy (Magic Johnson).
This guy was entirely too ahead of his time.
