Kobe Bryant notches up 20th triple-double

Kobe Bryant’s comeback is the picture of “you win some, you lose some”.

The 36 year old guard is taking the NBA by storm this season as he leads the league in scoring (26.6 PPG), but the (4-13) Lakers sit once again at the cellar of the Pacific Division.

The Black Mamba doesn’t have enough juice left in those legs to do it all on his own, but he sure is giving it his best shot.

Watch here as Kobe earned his twentieth career triple-double against the Toronto Raptors:

Twenty may seem like a lot, but it doesn’t even quality Bryant for the Top 10 of all time. Hell, even Michael Jordan barely makes the cut at #10 (28 triple-doubles).

Who’s got the most?

The top spot belongs to Oscar Robertson, who amassed an incredible 181 triple-doubles over the course of his career. In 1961-62 ‘The Big O’ averaged 30.8 PPG, 12.5 RPG and 11.4 APG.

In second place is Magic Johnson with 138. I think it’s safe to say that Kobe won’t catch the Lakers record either.

In the game the Black Mamba also becasue the first player in NBA history to have 30,000 career points and 6,000 career assists [ESPN].
