 Oscar Robertson is one of the best all-around players to ever play and is the only player to average a triple-double in a season.  Oscar attended the University of Cincinnati where he was player of the year every year and led in scoring. Drafted in 1960 by the Cincinnati Royals, Oscar would go on to average .3 assists away from a triple-double for his rookie season. In just his second season he averaged a triple-double but went up against the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals which they lost in seven games. After playing 10 seasons with the Royals he got traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in 1970 where he would play 4 seasons and winning his only NBA Championship alongside Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. What separates Robertson from everyone else is his all-around game which includes 184 career triple-doubles but does all-around greatness make him the G.O.A.T?
