Lebron Wants Triple Doubles

Just 10 points for King James in the Cavs' season opener Wednesday night, against the Dallas Mavericks. Lebron was kept in check by some tough D, but he surely will represent in his next game. It's rare to see a guy of his caliber have back to back poor performances.

In related news, Lebron has openly admitted he wouldn't mind matching Oscar Robertson's record of averaging a Triple Double for an entire season. Robertson achieved this way back in the 1961-62 season, just his second year in the league. James has several seasons under his belt, but these days that type of stat line seems tougher to keep up over the course of a season. Jason Kidd said he wanted to achieve this last year but fell short of the goal, and he scores far less points than James. It seems that one of these 2 guys could be the type to pull this off if anyone in the league can.

From sports, James said:

"As an individual accomplishment, what Oscar Robertson did by averaging a triple double over the course of a season stands out in my mind," said James, who has 12 career triple doubles. "That's automatic team success. You're doing the three things that need to be done in a game: pass, rebound and score. You're going to win when you do that."

And based on last night's performance you're going to lose if you keep putting up low scoring numbers. Lebron knows better, so watch out, the season is young and so is he...
