Is CB4 ready for a triple-double?
 
In my opinion if the team has consistency in the offensive event he should be making 10-15 per season. Raptors know how to rotate in their offense, can they do it for the whole game rather than one or two quarters?

10-15 per season is impossible for a guy playing in the front court, especially when you're the main scorer ... Lebron hasn't had 15 in his whole career, and he's handling the ball almost exclusively for the cavs.

Maybe, but I bet he'd rather win. :)

IMO 10-15 in a season is unrealistic.

He's not Magic Johnson or even Jason Kidd for that matter.

Yeah 10 to 15 I don't believe is feasible for a player like Bosh. It would of been nice to see him hit that milestone for the first time yesterday though. Damn you Rasho for missing that wide-open layup in the 4th quarter. :mad: ;)

He got 5 in the first quarter when his teammates were awake, can we play like that for the whole game?. 10 points and rebounds isn't a issue, but the assist depend on how they run their offense, CB will be double team most of the time creating open man opportunities of course if they are awake..........

better question, can a team play such poor defense like Denver did in the first quarter for a full game? :)

i can see 5 a game along with a high FG

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.

5 a game? Come on man, let's be realistic. There's just no precedent for a mediocre passing PF like Bosh who averages 2 to 2.5 assists a game to jump up to 5.

Guys like KG (who averaged 21/11/5 for 6 straight years) were good passers out of the gate, and he averaged 3 dimes in his second year, and 4.2 in his third.

Similarly Duncan was up to 3 per game in his 3rd year before he peaked at 3.9 assists per game several years later.

At most Bosh can average around low 3's per game. It's just now how we work, even with the attention he commands.

Besides, if Bargnani is playing well, IMO it means he's attacking the basket on his own, and probably not getting passes from Bosh but instead from guys like Calderon or Parker.
