Oscar Robertson: The Big O – High School To The NBA – A Photo Collection

Oscar Robertson, aka The Big O, is the only player to ever average a triple-double during an entire NBA season. He accomplished the feat during the 1961-62 season averaging 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and & 11.4 assists per game.

With Russell Westbrook about to become the second player to ever accomplish this feat, lets take a moment to remember the Big O, one of the greatest and classiest players to ever play the game.
