Noah Gets First Triple Double in Win

What do LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Deron Williams, Derrick Rose and Kobe Bryant all have in common? As of this moment, they all have fewer triple doubles on the season than Joakim Noah. The Bulls' 6'11" center scored 13 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out 10 assists to become the first Chicago center in roughly 35 years (Artis Gilmore accomplished the feat in December 1977) to accomplish the feat as the Bulls routed the Milwaukee Bucks 110-91 last night.

Clearly the hair is a necessity. Probably why Luc Longley never recorded a triple double. Noah becomes the 7th player to notch a triple double this year joining what is really quite an interesting group of names:

Only Boston's Rajon Rondo has more than one triple double so far this season. Rondo is also the only player on this list headed to the All Star Game after being added as an injury replacement for Atlanta's Joe Johnson.
