What is Quadruple-Double?

A term used to describe an achievement in which a player records a double-digit total number in a game in four of the following statistical categories: points, total rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks.

Sporting Charts explains Quadruple-Double

The quadruple-double is an exceptionally rare feat in basketball, because it's extremely difficult to obtain double-digit numbers in blocks or steals. Only four players have ever recorded a quadruple-double in the NBA: Nate Thurmond, Alvin Robertson, Hakeem Olajuwon, and David Robinson.

However, because the NBA only started recording steals and blocks at the start of the 1973-74 season, it's conceivable that players who played before that season, like Oscar Robertson or Wilt Chamberlain, could have recorded quadruple-doubles.
