NBA's all-time leaders for most career regular season triple-doubles

On May 10, 2021, Russell Westbrook surpassed Oscar Robertson's career triple-double tally of 181 by registering a 28-point, 21-assist and 17-rebound triple-double in a narrow one-point loss against the Atlanta Hawks.

He's recorded nine this season to extend his lead at the top with a total of 193 triple-doubles. Having averaged a triple-double in four of the last five seasons, 170 of Westbrook's 193 triple-doubles have come since 2016.

Westbrook is also the all-time triple-doubles leader for two franchises - the Oklahoma City Thunder (138) and Washington Wizards (38).
