What record? It's 10 games into the season, how can we insinuate that's what he's gunning for?

I noticed this last year, or maybe even two yrs ago.

I've seen him turn up lay ups for passes.

Its not "whoring" when he's the best passer in the league and he's trying to get more of his teammates involved. Rondo's taking more shots now and nailing them down at a higher %.

A point guard trying to distribute and move the ball, strange.

He's been doing it for awhile. Every star stat whores to a degree, he's just more blatant about it. Very blatant.

Would you not whore stats as well? Those numbers are probably worth a lot of money.

K-Love being a stad padder is totally different, he actually hurts his team doing this at times. Decides to park up under the rim and wait for the board as opposed to contesting shots.

No you aren't, as has been established plenty of times. Must be the third thread you've made on this.

It's annoying when he passes up an open shot for a more contested one, but that doesn't happen often. When it's a 2 on 0 break (like the Bass dunk last night) there's no problem with it really...
