no they won't. You're just trying to find any justification about this.

Dont need to read the rest after 4 sec.

Go watch the game

Isn't this what you want your point guard doing? Getting his teammates involved for easy baskets? It's not like he passed up an easy shot to get an assist for a harder shot.

You're trying too hard to make a big deal out of nothing. He's a point guard, point guards pass the ball, he passed the ball because he's a point guard, see spot run, go enjoy the game

No, he passed up an empty gym layup

I'm loving people trying to explain that pass as anything other than stat padding. I'll tell you this much: if LBJ did it you guys would be all over him.

Not sure if serious...

We have a professional bball player who cares so much about his own stats, that he slows down to wait for his teammate and get an assist.
This thing is ridiculous per se, no matter what anyone thinks about statpadding.

If anything, not caring about stats is a further reason to be bothered.
"I don't care about stats myself, and I am just an NBA fan... and YOU who are supposed to be a pro, care about your own stats so much?"

I'm bothered because he is trying to ring up his numbers instead of going with the flow of the game. Even the announce team couldn't avoid such blatant whoring. I don't care about stats. but i care when someone is trying to fukk up a rotation and flow of a basketball game. This isn't the All- Stars.

but of course looking at your avi, i'm positive that your unbiased

LBJ aint a PG and also Rondo always feed the ball first


LeBron just takes what he can get or the other way around takes whatever he wants.

The padding is crazy but point guards are supposed to get their scorers going

it doesn't matter. what if he'd of done this but Rose or some of the Bulls players would have caught up to steal the pass. Duke was all by himself. there was no one within 15-20 feet of him.

LeBron did do this. He did it in his first ever game.

Anyways, I don't see what the problem is. Rondo can't shoot; Ray Allen obviously can. Why not give Allen another shot and help him either get in a rhythm or keep him happy?

You're telling me Rondo cannot make a layup when he's the only one on that half of the court?

Again, I've got no problem with it, I just think all of this justification for a blatant move is hilarious.
