More Tyreke Evans Superlatives: A List of the NBA's All-Time 19/4/4 Rookies

Anecdotes like "only LeBron James and Tyreke Evans average this, that and the other" deserve some skepticism -- we're making up artifical platforms to boost the stock of a player whose stock we seek to boost. It's not exactly scientific method. The list I'm about to offer is similar in that the limitation I'm putting on it is constructed solely because Evans exceeds it.

That doesn't mean it's not impressive.

Fourteen rookies in the history of the NBA have averaged at least 19 points, four rebounds and four assists. Seven are in the Hall of Fame. Three are active. Two of those are surefire first-ballot Hall-of-Famers. The other is a potential Hall of Famer who made seven All-Star teams, one All-NBA first team and four All-NBA second teams, and who once finished third in MVP voting. Of the other four players on the list, one was a four-time All-Star, one was a starter on five championship teams, one made six All-Star teams and three All-NBA second teams, and one ... well, one liked to smoke weed and shoot 25-footers.

That is the 19/4/4 Rookie Club. Evans is currently averaging 19.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists.

After the jump, the 19/4/4 Rookie Club ...

  • Elgin Baylor
  • Oscar Robertson
  • Dave Bing
  • Earl Monroe
  • Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
  • Sidney Wicks
  • Larry Bird
  • Michael Jordan
  • Ron Harper
  • Mitch Richmond
  • Grant Hill
  • Damon Stoudemire
  • Allen Iverson
  • LeBron James

By the way, if you're of the mind Evans can increase his assists per game to 5.0 while maintaining the scoring and rebounding averages, you should know that the 19/5/5 Rookie Club is even more exclusive.
