I really thought no one would ever break the triple-double record, but Nikola Jokic just did.

The record was 17 minutes, more or less. We don’t know exactly, because Jim Tucker did it in 1955, about 63 years ago. They didn’t track it down to the second, but the official NBA record book says 17 minutes, so you can bet that it’s reliable. Up until Thursday, it was the quickest that anyone had ever recorded a triple-double. Then Jokic did it nearly two-and-a-half minutes quicker.

The official record: 14 minutes, 33 seconds. That’s how quickly Jokic did it, with 1:54 left in the second quarter in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks. That’s just absurd 锟斤拷 even more absurd than Jokic’s final line, which is also absurd: 30 points, 15 rebounds, 17 assists, and a couple of blocks for good measure.

Fourteen minutes and 33 seconds. I won’t say unbreakable, because my hubris has been quelled. But I bet that one is going to stand for a long while.

A flying swat on Julius Randle, then a weak-side rejection against Isaiah Thomas, all within a seven-second span. It was a six-point game at that time. Butler’s swats were very necessary to preserve the eventual win.

Last summer, Paul George reportedly was committed to joining the Lakers in 2018, his hometown team. James wants to contend wherever he goes, and he may think he, George, and the young Lakers core could do that. And the Lakers could use their space on another free agent Justin Patton Youth jersey besides George, although the 2018 free agency is rather bare beyond that.

In September, James visited Notre Dame High School in Los Angeles. James said it was only for a private workout, but TMZ reported his wife Savannah was checking out the campus, too. (James’ kids would need somewhere to attend school.) And in December, James purchased a $23 million mansion in Brentwood.

James and his family live in Los Angeles during the summer, but the visit could also be a sign that they’re contemplating a full-time move.

Los Angeles was fined $500,000 for tampering with George last summer, and their moves to clear cap space were very visible.
