HoopsHype Jud Buechler rumors

Using a database going back to the 1986-87 season — the earliest season available with complete boxes — the career leader in Trillions is Jud Buechler with 55. Buechler was a 6-foot-6 swingman who played for seven teams, most notably the Chicago Bulls, in the 1990s and early 2000s. Buechler was a sort of human victory cigar for the 1996, 1997 and 1998 N.B.A. champion Bulls, recording 25 Trillions (45.5 percent of his career total) in those three seasons. While Buechler is the career leader, the runner-up, Mario West, may be the standard-bearer of the Trillion Club. West, a former guard for the Atlanta Hawks, who is now playing in the D-League, has 51 career Trillions. New York Times
