Melo fits that criteria. Not sure if there have been better players than him who fit the criteria, though.

i consider peak gasol better than both of them. would he fall into that category, or did he set a season high somewhere in his career.

Technically, he leads in those categories, I just don't know if you're counting those as categories.

Haha, again, I don't know if this counts as one of the categories...

Pau led the league in Offensive Rating in 09'.
