Jason Kidd is four triple-doubles away from passing Larry Bird and moving into fourth place on the NBA's all-time triple-double list. Kidd registered triple-doubles on Dec. 26 and 27 at Detroit and Indiana. He was the first player to do it on back-to-back nights since he did it on Dec. 17-18, 1999.

Player T-Ds
Oscar Robertson 181
Magic Johnson 138
Wilt Chamberlain 78
Larry Bird 59


Barely legal
Cavaliers guard LeBron James celebrated his 19th birthday last Tuesday. In only 31 games, he's set a record for points scored before his 19th birthday, easily outdistancing Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant.
