LaMelo Ball Continues to Break Triple-Double Records

In the modern NBA, notching triple-doubles is becoming more common. Additionally, players are starting to produce the numbers required for this accomplishment at a young age. 

One young player who’s continued to put together triple-doubles at age 20 is LaMelo Ball, who’s now put together three early in his career. Following this third triple-double, he’s now tied for fourth-most in NBA history at age 20 or younger. 

This puts him in rare company, with the only players in history ahead of Ball being Luka Doncic (21), Magic Johnson (7) and LeBron James (5).

Ball just turned 20 years old 92 days ago, meaning he’s still got the rest of the 2021-22 season to climb this list even further. On the season, he’s averaged 19.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 7.7 assists per contest.

The rising star has been one of the best players for the Charlotte Hornets, who are currently in the playoff picture with a record of 10-8.
