Lonzo Ball Is the Youngest NBA Player to Get a Triple-Double
LeBron James is no longer the youngest to achieve the feat.
Lonzo Ball achieved a triple-double against the Milwaukee Bucks this past Saturday night, making him the youngest NBA player ever to do so at the age of 20 years and 15 days. The last youngest player to perform the feat was LeBron James who did it during the 2004-05 season at the age of 20 years and 20 days.
The Los Angeles Lakers rookie completed his night with 19 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds. He also nabbed 4 blocks and 3 steals. However, the Lakers still lost to the Bucks 98-90 and when asked about his performance, Ball stated, “I really don’t care… we took a loss. It don’t really mean nothing.”
