The late Nate Thurmond’s quadruple-double, one of four in NBA history, is discussed in the second episode of the Over and Back Classic NBA podcast’s summer series — Basketball Mysteries of the 1970s. Jason Mann and Rich Kraetsch talk about the hardest aspect of a quadruple-double, Thurmond’s time with the Warriors (with and without Rick Barry), his trade to Chicago and fitting in with the Bulls, past players who could have potentially gotten a quadruple-double before steals and blocks were official stats, how Thurmond felt about being compared to Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell, Thurmond’s success in defending Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and the end of Thurmond’s career in Cleveland, and helping the Cavs reach the Eastern Conference Finals in 1976 thanks to the “Miracle at Richfield.”
