Players With The Most Triple-Doubles In NBA History

Updated August 10, 2020 34.0k views24 items

Finishing an NBA career leading in all time triple-doubles says a lot about the player achieving such a goal. While leading the NBA in points scored or another single record is certainly impressive, those who hold a triple-double record prove to not only be the best shooters in the NBA, but expert passers and defensive players as well. Whether their triple-doubles are comprised of points, rebounds, and assists or more steals and blocked shots, any type of triple-double is a great feat.

So, who holds the record for most triple-doubles in NBA history? Legendary point guard Oscar Robertson takes the top spot, but with Russell Westbrook still in his prime, extending his consecutive triple-double run to numbers that exceeded the previous record by Wilt Chamberlain, and also holding the single season triple-double record, Robertson may not hold the record for much longer. Other guys with the most triple-dubs include Jason Kidd, Wilt Chamberlain, Lebron James, and Larry Bird—among other NBA greats. Take a look at the list below to see who else holds a record and just how many they achieved throughout their career.
