Major League Baseball is a hell of a lot older than the NBA. MLB has had more time for there to be triple crown winners than the NBA has even existed.

A lot of responses for a thread that I thought would be on page 3 by now, lol...

My main concern with some of the suggestions is that it wouldn't make sense to include rebounds/steals/blocks...baseball's triple crown involves the three principal offensive box-score stats, while those none of those three describes a player's offense (unless you consider rebounding to be part o part d as opposed to a separate aspect of the game, but it's still a stretch unless you restrict it to offensive rebounds.

Also, the criteria have to be standardized across positions. Since there aren't many position-neutral stats I guess it's rather unfair, but we can design the criteria so that it's equally tough for big men and guards..
