Oscar Robertson, ladies and gentlemen. If you want to know all about his statistics and records go here but in the short term, just watch the above video and marvel at a player that played way ahead of his time. In this highlights package you’ll definitely see some elements of what makes today’s game so great. Fadeaway jumpers, killer crossovers, all the good stuff.

Oscar Robertson was one of the most dynamic players ever to play professional basketball. To illustrate just how good this guy was, just take a look at his season averages in 1961-62:

30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.8 assists per game.

The only player in NBA history to average a triple-double for an entire season. While that in itself is amazing, Robertson incredibly also had another four seasons in which he only missed matching that feat by less than one assist or rebound per game.

Oscar played for the Cincinnati Royals (later the Sacramento Kings) and the Milwaukee Bucks throughout his 14 year career. He was a member of the Bucks’ one and only championship team in 1971 alongside Lew Alcindor, who shortly after became known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

In a nutshell, the man was LeBron James-good long before LeBron James was, by today’s standards.

As Biggie Smalls once said, “If you don’t know, now you know.
