NBA History: Great Point Forward’s

It’s not news that Joakim Noah is the reason behind the Chicago Bulls awesome run to the playoffs sans Derrick Rose.  Acting as a point forward he has mixed great passing skills with elite offensive rebounding.

Noah is sporting the second season in NBA history (inclusive of the last four decades) with a 10% Offensive Rebound rate and 25% Assist rate.   The last player to accomplish this feat was Alvin Robertson for the Milwaukee Bucks in 1990.

The only other players to get close to this level of point forward type production were Magic Johnson, Clyde Drexler and Kevin Garnett.
