The annual Super Bowl is the most anticipated game in America. Heck even the Super Bowl’s halftime performance is more anticipated than the NBA Finals. The NFL is the most popular league in America. NFL quarterbacks like Johnny Unitas, Joe Montana, Dan Marino, Brett Favre and Tom Brady easily are the more popular names in the sport.
Sports is a big part of the American culture. These games are vehicles for transmitting values such as teamwork, fair play and justice. They have also played a part in bonding the entire nation together by contributing to social and racial integration.
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.
