But who got the first triple-double and when was it? That question is hard to answer as in the early days of the NBA and BAA stat keeping was not well kept. Many of the early box scores have gone missing or are incomplete. Add to that the NBA did not keep track of blocks and steals until 1973. The NBA also did not accurately record rebounds until after the 1950 season.
When boxing reached the Pay Per View era, the biggest pay per view draw in the history of the sport was American – Floyd Mayweather Jr. Mayweather broke one pay per view record after another. He made boxing more than a sport by adding entertainment value to it. Americans bought Mayweather. Just look at the PPV records.
One such player who had their career cut short by acting out and drugs was Marvin Barnes. Barnes is one of the saddest yet most interesting stories in NBA history, yet it is one with a glimmer of hope. Barnes had the nickname â€œBad News Marvinâ€ because of his off the court issues.
