Untitled[edit]

I think that including the three players with the most assists in NBA history is justified. John Stockton, Mark Jackson and Magic Johnson should all be included. It seems like someone is singling out Stephon Marbury just because he or she likes him. He is mentioned in the section about other players known for their assists, there's no need to add a special section for him, escpecially since he's known as more of a "shoot-first" point guard.

why are assists called dime?

I believe it's because, one player has just made a connection with another player...Dropping a dime...as in dropping a dime in a telephone to make a phone call/connection with another person. Zodiiak 03:28, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

deleting mike wilks from notable assistors. it's a joke. Michaeljwsiegel 00:27, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

I really don't think an assist has ever been referred to as "flogging the dolphin"... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.83.70.167 (talk) 02:22, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Why is Rose the picture for this article? Is someone a fanboy? If looking for modern assist leaders, Jason Kidd and Steve Nash would be much more appropriate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.26.239.56 (talk) 21:11, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
