Iverson as far as style and # of assists should definitely be on the list, but he seemed way too excited when he came over to Denver.

He was going too out of his way to pass because he finally had talent around him. Once he settles down and cuts back on the TO's he'll truly deserve to be on here.

i do think its funny tho that the media always forgets about A.I's greatest game 7 performance in his career.
16 assists vs Toronto to win game 7. that always gets forgotten.

I think T.J ford should be ahead of Wade. Lebron shouldn't be on the list. I'd replace him with Andre Miller.

Tracy McGrady is a better passer then Billups. He might not average more assist but is a better passer.

If he is the best passing foward next to McGrady then why isn't Mcgrady on the list?

I thought I would put Lebron there not because I think he should be, but because people would complain that he wasn't there. Personally I wouldn't have him there either.

career average of over 6 apg from the small forward? Of course he should be on there. Perhaps MeMac should be as well, but still, those are awesome #s. (IKIK hes always got the ball in his hands so its not comparable to other small forwards - same with meMac - only 4.6 apg for his career)

Yes, but he has no other playmaker on his team. he's improved his passing to become the head playmaker, but a big part of why his assists are so high is because he's the only playmaker. McGrady has Rafer Alston averaging 5 assists with him, yet he still manages to average around 6 to be right behind Lebron. If you average almost as many assists as somebody when you have another playmaker on your team while the other player doesn't, that's saying something.

McGrady's career APG is low at 4.6 because 1. He started off his career slowly and 2. He's only been a playmaker since he came to Houston. On Toronto he was a rebounding scorer and on Orlando he was a scoring machine. Same with Iverson, his career APG is lower than it could be because he hasn't been a primary playmaker for his entire career. Lebron's is high at 6.4 because he has been.

Instead of saying his list is ****ed up, explain yourself. And tell me why you think Lebron is a better passer than McGrady.

I wouldn't call Nash a better passer than Kidd. I understand the argument, though.
