Doncic got a nice triple dub against the Bulls yesterday to go with a nice side of a double digit L.

Speaking of the Bulls, he also broke Jordan's record for triple doubles. In a little over 3 years in the league.

Comparing stats in this day and age to even 15 years ago is a bit pointless, let alone 25+ ago.

Stats are just so inflated nowadays with the pace of play and just the general disinterest in defense during the regular season.

I knew you would come back with that. Breaking Jordan's records is a big fucking deal. I don't give a damn what era we are in.

It wasn't a record, it was just how many Jordan had in his career apparently.

The fact that Westbrook, who is basically a net negative player at this point, will likely retire with the most triple doubles ever is a pretty good indicator that stats in today's NBA are pretty much irrelevant in comparing to past eras.

Doncic is one of the best young players in the league but however many triple doubles he has isn't on the top 10 list of reasons I'd argue why.

I look forward to the day when this overrated, overhyped flopping douchebag retires. Maybe the NBA can start becoming watchable again.

Yeah, I can't stand that dude. He is not only overrated, he is also unAmerican, which is way worse to me.
