Ron Artest went of tonight. Came pretty close to a quadruple-double. He would have been only the fifth player in NBA history to record one.
24 Points 10/18
9 Rebounds
9 Assists
8 Steals

I saw about this on Sportscenter.

That is an amazing line and so close too.

I didn't realize only 4 players have done so.

Yea, I was surprised at only four myself.

David Robinson, Hakeem Olajuwon, Alvin Robertson. Who else?

When you think about it...those are just plain rediculous lines. Wow.

<< When you think about it...those are just plain rediculous lines. Wow. >>

I was thinking the same exact thing. Geez, that's difficult to put those kinds of numbers up. Blocks and steals have to be the toughest to achieve, imo.

Thanks Mavinator.

Absolutely, 8 steals in a game is unbelievable alone. I said it when the traid was made but Chicago will rue the day they traded Artest. He will become Eddie Jones, and might become Pippen. He has the potential to be 20pts/6rb/5at/2.2st.

I said Artest was just a step or two away from catching Rose. I believe he will catch him in the next year or so.

CHI-Town another dumb trade. It all started with this idea last summer:

Do you think we could trade a 20/10 guy for a guy who might oneday become a 20/10 guy?
