This graph only shows the last 15 years of Playoff games, but even if we go as far back as 1986, we only get one more member in this group - Hakeem Olajuwon with 49 points and 25 rebounds (holy shit!!!) in the Rockets’ loss against the Sonics in 1987.

As the Heat get ready to chase their own Threepeat, here’s the last Threepeat the NBA has seen - Shaq & Kobe’s Lakers (2000, 2001, 2002).
