RONDO'S TRIPLES AND THE HOF

There's been a lot of talk about not making too much of Rondo's triple-doubles but history suggests they are a very accurate indicator that we have a very, very special player on our hands. Consider the NBA players w/ more triple-doubles than Rajon Rondo: Magic, J Kidd, Wilt, Bird, Fat Lever, LeBron, Havlicek, Grant Hill, Jordan, C Drexler, W Frazier, C-Webb, MR Richardson, Barkely. Lever (All-Star not quite HOF caliber), Hill (chronic mid-career injuries) & Richardson (drugs) only ones not in or likely to be in HOF (could make case for Hill). The point is, were it not for some fluky issues with Hill & Richardson 16 OUT OF 17 OF THESE PLAYERS WOULD BE HALL OF FAMERS! Fat Lever is Rondo's floor, and who knows where his ceiling is (Jason Kidd with better supporting cast?). Rondo could be behind only Magic, Kidd, Wilt, Bird & LeBron in triple-doubles when all is said & done, & he has an outside shot at passing Bird. Think about that for a sec!
