Proposal: Assorted Triple Double, a new term

It's very rare to get a triple double in college, partially because of the way the game is played and partially because the game is only 40 minutes long and the shot clock is 35 seconds long, and a number of coaches embrace a slow style of play, slugfests and neo-slugfests.

So my proposal is to use a new term to spotlight statistical performances with impact, the assorted triple double.

So what is an assorted triple double? You have a traditional double-double, and then if you add the remaining categories, you have more than ten. For example, take Danny Green's performance in a recent game, he had 13 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals and 1 block. This doesn't register as a triple double, but it registers as an assorted triple double, and can be used to highlight his impact in that game.

What do you think? :)
