NBA Prodigy Kevin Love Records 52nd Consecutive Double-Double to Set NBA Record - Page 3
When asked about his record breaking night and the potential to chase down Wilt's hopelessly insurmountable record for consecutive double-doubles, Love said, "If you are looking at the grand scheme of things, you have to look at the 227 by 'The Big Dipper,' Wilt the Stilt. He was something special. It's not like I have my eyes set on that. I am pretty happy in 2011 with where I am at with 52 (consecutive) double-doubles."
Love also added on Wilt's record, "There are unbreakable records in this league and that is one of them."
*The modern era of the NBA is the era that started in 1976 when America's two national leagues, the American Basketball Association and the National Basketball Association, merged to become what we now know as today's NBA. The merger vastly changed the landscape of the NBA and had such an impact on statistics, NBA records are distinguished by whether or not they happened in the NBA's modern era or before(For example: the single game scoring record in NBA history is Wilt Chamberlin's 100 points in 1962 but the modern era record is Kobe Bryant's 81 in 2006).
*Above is a list of the modern era's most dominate rebounding/scoring combination players and their greatest statistical season of their careers in rebounds and scoring average combined. Love ranks second only to M. Malone in RPG, ranks higher than Dwight Howard, Tim Duncan and Chris Webber and comparable to Shaquille O'neal and Charles Barkley for single season combined rebound and scoring averages.
