However, if anyone assumed that the Los Angeles Lakers superstar was washed got a rude awakening Tuesday night after notching his third straight triple-double.
James and the Lakers took on the Chicago Bulls at their home court, this after a successful road trip that saw the Lake Show notch wins over the San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks.

Via Twitter, James retweeted a tweet from the officials Los Angeles Lakers account making note of his feat while also mentioning he is the first player to notch three consecutive triple-doubles in 32 years for the squad.
