NBA revokes Rajon Rondo’s triple-double against Hawks (video)


Rajon Rondo, who led the NBA in triple-doubles in 2011-12 (six) and 2012-13 (five), is having a resurgent season.

He already has six triple-doubles this season.

Correction: Had.

Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee:

This wasn’t a judgment call. It was just a scorekeeping error. DeMarcus Cousins clearly grabbed that rebound.

There’s no need to fret about the correction. Rondo’s on-court accomplishments still stand up just fine, and triple-doubles are an overrated stat anyway.

Was Rondo really less impactful because he had just 11 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds in the Kings’ win over the Hawks?
