I’ve written before how Josh McRoberts has added his name to the short list of great passing big men. Since that post in December the Bobcats power forward is still running a 4-to-1 assist/turnover rate. He seems legit.
After the Chicago Bulls victory in San Antonio on Wednesday I can no longer ignore their center Joakim Noah. Dishing out a game high 8 assists to teammates Jimmy Butler, Carlos Boozer and D.J. Augustin the former Florida Gator has been the staple in the Bulls offense. In the absence of Derrick Rose and with Luol Deng traded to Cleveland Joakim Noah has been wonderful.
- Noah leads all Bulls in total assists this season.
- Noah leads all NBA centers in assists/minute.
- Noah increased his assists this year while decreasing turnovers.
