|It's NOT Gamble, but he did have one.|
Between 1979 and 1992, Larry Bird had 69 of the first 71 triple doubles in franchise history. During his run, Robert Parish (3/29/87) and Dennis Johnson (5/6/88) each had one. After Bird, Kevin Gamble notched one on 2/16/93. Employee #8, Antoine Walker, had Boston's next 13 triple doubles from 1997-2002. Paul Pierce then logged the team's next 6 over a three year span of 2003-'06.
Starting on 12/3/08, and continuing though last night, Rajon Rondo has put up 24 of the last 25 triple doubles for the Celtics (Pierce had his last one 12/19/10). But after Pierce in '06, and before Rondo became a starter in '07, one other Celtic recorded a triple double: Providence Friar Ryan Gomes, on 11/8/06. Here's the complete list.
