No one has averaged triple double in his career. Oscar Robertson did it for a single season in '61-'62 (the same year Wilt averaged 50.4 ppg) with 30.8 ppg, 11.4 apg and 12.5 rpg.

Wilt Chamberlain in '67-'68 averaged 24.3 ppg, 23.8 rpg and 8.6 apg.
Magic Johnson in '81-'82 averaged 18.6 ppg, 9.5 apg and 9.6 rpg
In the 2007 Playoffs. Jason Kidd averaged a triple double with 14.6 ppg, 10.9 rpg and 10.9 apg

How many NBA players have ever average 20-10 in their career?

Career average, not single season average.

I'm also counting Blake Griffin's rookie season and Alex Groza (before the mods banned him for trolling).

Good call, I suppose they should both count. Tim Duncan is almost certainly going to fall off the list before he's done. Might even be after next season. He'll need to average at least 12 ppg.

Duncan is the only active player?

How about Zach, Dirk, KG, Gasol and D-Ho?

Er, Nowitzki never averaged 10 rpg in a single season. He certainly hasn't done so throughout his career.

The three closest to 20/10 in points and assists would be:

Magic Johnson 19.5/11.2
Oscar Robertson 25.7/9.5
Isiah Thomas 19.2/9.3
Interesting! how about steve nash?

A career 20/10 average is quite an accomplishment. A lot of people don't realize there is only one person ever who has a career 20/10/5 average. He just so happens to be the founder of the 50/40/90 club for FG, 3pt, FT % for a season. In my humble opinion, Larry Legend was the greatest all-around player to have ever played, and he accomplished everything with a structurally damaged back injury for more than half of his shortened career.
