Countdown: Top 10 NBA Players of All-Time (No.7)

7th best NBA player of all-time:

Oscar Robertson, PG

A triple-double is a term in the NBA defined as an individual performance in a game in which a player accumulates double-digit totals n any three of these categories: points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocked shots.

If there is a topic discussing triple-doubles, more times than not that discussion will include Oscar "The Big O" Robertson, whose is the career leader in triple-doubles with 181.

The Big O combined versatile play with great making to become one of the greatest players in NBA history. Paired with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in Milwaukee, the 1-2 punch of Oscar and KAJ is considered one of the best in NBA history.

Below are some of Robertson's awards:

As I said before, rarely will you see a player who can score, rebound, and pass as well as The Big O. A role model to all players who wish to be "all-around", Oscar's legacy is one of those which will be very hard to repeat.
