The Big O was from the future. The league wasn't ready for him. He's still the only player to average a triple-double (1962) and missed by the skin of his teeth on four separate occasions. Unfortunately, he came up during the Russell era and was able to capture only one ring when he teamed up with Kareem in 1971 on the Bucks. Robertson put up those kinds of numbers because he believed in making his teammates better. He put it all on the line for them. Oscar dominated smaller points in his day with his 6'5", 205-pound frame. He imposed his will to become one of the greatest to ever play pro basketball.
