Bruno Caboclo would be an all star if he played under Giannis "rules".

I love how when Giannis made the comment “I want somebody who’s going to pass the ball” about harden, talking heads jumped on how harden actually averages more assists per game than Giannis, as to point out some hypocrisy, but didn’t look up the passes made per game stat, which is, you know, literally the metric of Giannis’ quote.

Tim MacMahon for ESPN Also states that harden has more assists per game than trae and Kemba (who Giannis considered instead of harden), but, once again, those players actually pass the ball more per game than harden.

It irks me when there are articles analyzing statements and parsing them out for fact or fiction, like that ESPN article, and they themselves are actually incorrect, too.

How do narratives start like this when there is really simple data you can look up? And how do supposed credible media members continue to conflate ideas of passing with apgzzz?

Unsurprisingly, Jokic makes the most passes per game.
