Over the past decade or so, the NBA has become faster, with more possessions, rebounds, assists, and points. Last season, Russell Westbrook averaged a triple-double for the season becoming just the second player in NBA history to do it (!) and finally won the MVP award as well. Other players, like LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, James Harden, Nikola Jokic flirt with triple-doubles night in and night out.
On November 11, 2017, Lonzo Ball put his name in NBA history as he became the youngest player in the history of the NBA to record a triple-double. He finished with 19 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists in a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks but he managed to become the youngest player to ever have these type of numbers across the board. Lonzo Ball was just five days younger than LeBron James’ first ever triple-double in 2005.
