A triple-double is when a basketball player has two digits in three statistic categories. For example, 20 points, 15 rebounds, and 10 assists is a triple-double. Last night in the NBA Finals, Lebron James had 26 points, 11 rebounds, and 13 assists for a triple double.
It is when a basketball player has double digit stats in the three of the following categories: points, rebounds, steals, blocks, and assists. You usually see players getting triple doubles with at least 10 points, at least 10 assists, and at least 10 rebounds.
