Leading the NBA in all-time triple-doubles is one thing, but holding the record for most triple-doubles in a season is another story. As if the double-double record isn't enough, and not to diminish the great achievement the all-time triple-double record is, nailing the most triple-doubles in a single season is quite impressive. Considering the amount of playing time and effort it takes, only the NBA's top players are leaving the court with triple-doubles on a regular basis.

Whether it's a combination of points, rebounds, and assists from the best point guards in the league or one with blocked shots and steals as a top center, hitting the NBA triple-double record for a single season is a serious accomplishment. And as you'll see from the range of triple-doubles amassed among the record holders, the most in a season doesn't always come easy—unless you're Russell Westbrook (who holds the top spot). Who else holds a record for the most triple-doubles in one season? Check out the list below to find out.
