Not a knock on him. Have to be crazy talented to just decide to get triple doubles. But he was staying back and calling for rebounds teammates had. Forcing passes late in game and demanding teammates shoot it to get his assist. Keeping up with his own numbers to correct the stats guys. He statpadded his way to those numbers and it was clear as day. Several of them were like 30/10/10 because he got it in the last moments just for the sake of the numbers.


That's the side of Jordan I totally can believe. So on the same premise as the thread title, don't get all overexcited about Jordan's triple doubles.

Lebron's been putting up great numbers for awhile now... it's not that surprising. The premise of this thread is off... No one is getting all that excited.

Could have been worse... could have pulled a Ricky Davis.

that all depends on what type of players join the organization. adding a point guard to help handle and distribute the ball could make his assist numbers go down, while adding better players to the front court could make his assist numbers go up and rebound numbers go down
