It's NOT Gamble, but he did have one. The NBA started keeping track of the stat in 1979.  Since that time, 117 triple doubles have been recorded by 8 different Boston Celtics players (all of these numbers I'm mentioning include playoffs). Between 1979 and 1992, Larry Bird had 69 of the first 71 triple doubles in franchise history.  During his run, Robert Parish (3/29/87) and Dennis Johnson (5/6/88) each had one.  After Bird, Kevin Gamble notched one on 2/16/93.  Employee #8, Antoine Walker, had Boston's next 13 triple doubles from 1997-2002.  Paul Pierce then logged the team's next 6 over a three year span of 2003-'06. Starting on 12/3/08, and continuing though last night, Rajon Rondo has put up 24 of the last 25 triple doubles for the Celtics (Pierce had his last one 12/19/10).  But after Pierce in '06, and before Rondo became a starter in '07, one other Celtic recorded a triple double: Providence Friar Ryan Gomes, on 11/8/06.  Here's the complete list.
