Yes but don't you think that is the exception rather than the rule?
The closest example I can think of is Tim Duncan who draws an instant double team in San Antonio and is surrounded by shooters and yet even he only has a handful of triple doubles (I think between 6 and 10) for his career.
It's tough for big men to get triple doubles usually. Some do it first Marcus Camby style with blocks rather than assists.
I'm more concerned with Calderon's sagging assist numbers. He should be averaging close to a double-double IMO.
