 On November 7th 2012 , the Pistons frontcourt player G.Monroe scored 21 points on 8-15 shooting, grabbed 12 rebounds, and handed out a career-high 11 assists.

He posted the first triple double in the 2012-2013 season.

Monroe was also 5-7 from the free throw line and even added a steal to the stat sheet. In terms of fantasy basketball, Monroe is proving to be the lone star on a lousy Pistons team and owners are benefiting greatly from it.

Greg Monroe became the first player on the Pistons to record a triple-double since Chauncey Billups accomplished the feat way back in 2004.

This was the first triple-double by a Pistons center since Ben Wallace recorded one back in 2002 against the Miami Heat with 12 points, 19 rebounds, and 10 blocks.

16 triples doubles are in the books now for lovers of fantasy basketball

R. Rondo and Spanish  point guard Calderon pace the league with two

6 triple doubles were dropped by point guard , the best position in my eyes to have double digits in basketball , because you can share the ball , but you have to be healthy and clever to take advantage of the glass when big guys are roaring.

Since 1999-2000, the NBA has seen 34,5 triple-doubles by season , or 1 every 36 games !

The 11-12 season does not count because of the cut of the calendar because of the strike.

Jason Kidd stays today the best in this art with 107 triples double collected in regular games.

Oscar Robertson is the first with 181, Magic Johnson owned 138.

Jason Kidd

Jason Kidd can at ease share the ball, score and collect rebounds to reach double digit in these three main fields to help the team to win a game.

A triple-double is  a tough indication of an excellent all-around individual performance during a game.

To make a jump trough the long story of the NBA, Dolph Schayes might have registered the first triple double in 1951 on February 8 behind 18 points22 rebounds and 13 assists according to the Harvey J. Pollack NBA Statistical Yearbook.
