One of the things that marks out the best basketball players is versatility. With only five players on the court, it is fair to say that players are expected to be able to bring something on both offense and defense. The players who are most successful in doing this will often end up with a “triple double”. What’s one of those? Well, it is the name given to an achievement where a player manages a double-digit total in three of the following five categories.

• Points
• Rebounds
• Assists
• Steals
• Blocked Shots (Opponent’s)

Most good attacking players will hit double figures for points in any game, often by the halfway mark in the game. The other two parts of the triple-double will depend on the player’s strengths. For instance, taller and larger players may get a fair share of blocked shots, because they are so hard to deliver a shot over. An alert, unselfish player can easily get ten assists in a game where their team has the upper hand. Players with great hustle will get their share of steals and often of rebounds too – offensive and defensive rebounds count.

The tricky thing about getting a triple double is that often a player who is trying for it will find it harder to get, as there is little point trying to manufacture rebounds, and you should really be playing your game rather than waiting for the opportunity to pick up stats. However, if you play your game to the best of your ability, a triple-double is within your reach (depending on which rules you are playing under, anyway).
