Giannis officially passes Michael Jordan in total triple doubles notched all-time

Michael Jordan had notched merely 28 triple doubles in his 15 year career in the NBA. 10 of these TDs came in an 11 game span when he had switched to the point guard position and played more of an Oscar Robertson type roll for the Chicago Bulls in the ‘89 season under Doug Collins’s tutelage.

So Jordan clearly had the ability to crash the glass and dish the rock but with one of the greatest point forwards of all time on his team (Scottie Pippen), why should he? 

Giannis, in only his 9th season in the league, has passed the ‘GOAT’ on the all-time triple double list and is currently 18th. He notched a monster TD against the Washington Wizards last night in a 14 point victory that saw him have 33 points, 15 rebounds, and 11 assists on 14-18 shooting from 2-point range.
