The last recorded quadruple-double was accomplished by the brilliant David Robinson. The Hall of Fame center put together this magical performance on February 17, 1994, against the Detroit Pistons, and it was accompanied by a Spurs victory. The Admiral scored 34 points on 12-20 from the field and also tacked on 10 points from the free-throw line. In addition to the points, Robinson recorded 10 rebounds, 10 assists, and 10 blocks, and the Spurs handled the Pistons with ease, 115-96.

“We didn’t even talk about the winning streak. We did talk about David’s quadruple-double. He was just great. But I was mad at him. He missed seven free throws and he should have had 41 points.” Spurs coach John Lucas.

Robinson’s monster game was the NBA’s first quadruple-double since Hakeem Olajuwon did it on March 29, 1990. The only other players with quadruple-doubles since the NBA began keeping track were Nate Thurmond in 1974 and the Spurs’ Alvin Robertson in 1986.
