Just how tough is it to get a triple-double? Kidd is the active leader with more than 100 triple-doubles, yet he has no chance of ever catching Oscar Robertson’s record of 181 career triple-doubles. Regardless, triple-doubles are only one way to measure a player’s all-around abilities. Kidd was known for his passing skills when he came into the NBA in 1994, and as a 200-pound point guard he was not afraid to crash the boards. But few players have transformed themselves from poor shooters to great shooters over the course of an NBA career. Kidd — who was once mocked as “Ason” because he had no “J” — can no longer be left open beyond the arc, where he has hit the third-most 3-pointers in NBA history.
