NBA Players Currently Averaging A Double-Double... Including Earl Barron?!

New, 6 comments

Sometimes I get bored with the D-League, so last night I decided to do a bit of NBA research.  Unfortunately since I'm lazy, I decided I'd start with something easy like finding out which NBA players currently average a double-double.

Below are the results I found while on my fact-finding mission - in handy alphabetical order:

Earl Barron, Andrew Bogut, Chris Bosh, Carlos Boozer, Tim Duncan, Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard, David Lee, Kevin Love, Troy Murphy, Steve Nash, Joakim Noah, Chris Paul, Zach Randolph, Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams.

I know what you're thinking - Troy freakin' Murphy is averaging a double-double in the NBA!? LOL!

But what you should have noticed is that former Iowa Energy center Earl Barron is leading the list of NBA players averaging a double-double in the NBA when sorted by last name in alphabetical order, even though he's played in just five games!

Through five games this season with the New York Knicks, Barron is averaging 12.6 points and 11.4 rebounds even though he didn't average a double-double in his 66 game D-League career (15.1 points, 9.5 rebounds).

Barron truly is better in the NBA than he was in the D-League.
