Hey! He’s my second favorite player!! And he is totally fine with that.


Did you ask him that? Hopefully in a safe area with lots of people around.

That was great. I've never seen that one before.

(Thumbs up).

He has done that several times, I remember growing up watching him do that. Of course, there were turnovers as well. Saying that he has a lot could actually make it less impressive because that would make one think that it was a play as opposed to vision. But I don’t think anyone’s really praising Malone for his court vision and passing anyway.

Aren't I doing that? By encouraging you to post about his assists?

My assist memories of him are more bounce passes to cutters.

Can LeBron James average an assists double double, for the first time in his career?

I think he can and he could have before if he focused on it. Hopefully, he has weapons around him and the interest to do so. He’s had pretty high assist numbers because of his usage and talent even without great players around him. Some will get tired of him, but I love assists so go for it!

I think he gets a lot of flack because people want to compare him to Michael Jordan for the best of all time. But I think that’s silly. We all know it’s David Stockton.

I think he focused on getting assists before. When someone averages 7-8 a game, then they are focusing on it.

There also a few years when he shot 53-56% from the field. When he's that close to the rim, he has to finish, no one is going to get a better shot.

I hope he's able to get 51% FG this year, and keep his assists.

And get more steals. He's at 1.6 this year, let's keep that up.

I just read on another forum someone praising the team passing concept of the Jazz.

Doncic has had a 30 point, 20 rebound triple double.

When will he have a 30 point, 20 assist triple double?

How about a 30 assist triple double?

With our luck, he’ll get 9 points that day.

Lol.

Well, he's not as good of a 3-point shooter right now. He does average 9 free throw attempts though, so he can cobble a few points there.

Rivers Sr. just called Jokic a quarterback. :)

He's scored or assisted on 17 of Denver's 25 points.

@MHSL82, it's worse than we thought.

Doncic gets a triple double, but is now hurt and out for the rest of the game.

Maybe Jokic can get that 20 assist playoffs triple double!
