I would have accepted Dirk as well as an answer (he was the other player who won it with him for the 1st time).

I was thinking Bron or Bosh?

I just got unbanned from the GB. This thread is fun and let's keep it going!

This player is a swingman who started on a 57+ win team in the early 2010s despite averaging less than 5 ppg. Strangely though, whenever he scored 6 points or more in a game, his team got a 26-2 record.

Definite bonus if you don't look up stats :P

Really dude?

Too easy, Amir Johnson.

Thabo Sefolosha on the Thunder?

yes Keith Bogans is the man.

Thabo averaged over 5 ppg in all seasons (except the locked out season which his team wasn't a 57+ win team).

Nope never a hornet/pelican

Never an allstar but versatile low FGA role player who played everywhere from 3-5 in his career.

He came close to a quad dub in that Heat game but it's not him

22 pts, 12 ast, 9 stl, 7 reb for MCW

kinda shows you the fallacy of the whole triple double fascination don't it?

I have one... retired player.

- I have fewer career 35 point games than youngsters Anthony Davis and Demarcus Cousins in the regular season.

- I have more 30+ point career games in the playoffs than Dwayne Wade and Charles Barkley

I was thinking maybe Andrei Kirilenko but apparently he was an all star in 2004 and you said the player never made the ASG.
