The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence, — On Tuesday Nikola Jokić became the sixth player in NBA history to record 100 career triple-doubles.

1. Russell Westbrook (198)

2. Oscar Robertson (181)

3. Magic Johnson (138)

4. Jason Kidd (107)

5. LeBron James (106)

6. Jokić (100)

Jokić, 28, needed 582 games to reach 100 triple-doubles, trailing only Robertson (277 games).

He has 24 triple-doubles this season (including 15 in his last 20 games) and the Nuggets have won all 24 of those contests, and he’s currently averaging a triple-double while ranking 19th in points (24.6), third in rebounds (11.7) and fourth in assists (10.0).

As Axios Sports notes, we have simply never seen a player like “The Joker,” who could soon become just the fourth NBA player to win three straight league MVPs.
