More Love for “McBob”

OK, so I’ve written a lot about Josh McRoberts this year.  But now that Joakim Noah is getting all this (well deserved) attention it’s my duty to promote the second best passing big man in the NBA.

Noah’s 25% assist rate this year is off the charts for a pivot man but the Bobcats main dish server is close behind at 22%.  This is about two points ahead of Kevin Love and nearly four ahead of Blake Griffin.

Also, McBob’s 4-to-1 assist/turnover rate is extremely helpful to Charlotte’s offense.  The Bobcats are +5 points/100 possessions with McRoberts on the court versus him riding the pine.  This is nearly the difference between the scoring attacks of the Indiana Pacers and the Philadelphia 76′ers.
