Jameer Nelson is all-time assists leader! 

Post#1 » by drsd » Sat Jan 5, 2013 5:45 pm

O-Sen LINK

Nelson needs nine more assists to tie Scott Skiles for the Magic's career assists record. Nelson has 2,767 assists. Skiles compiled 2,776 assists with the Magic.


Unless Nelson is involved in a trade, he should finish his Magic career with well over 3000 assists.

Hopefully he gets enough assists the next game
Basketball is driven by three principles:

1) Movement 2) Application of fundamentals 3) Predictability

The team should try to break two records at once then.

Magic All-Time leader in assists
NBA record for most assists in a game: 31 or more.

Go team go!
There is a signature here somewhere... well, this will do until the Orlando Magic have a winning record again.

Might take a while... so... enjoy!

Anyways, I hope he gets it tonight.

To be fair to Jameer, he's played in an entirely different system than Skiles did pre Shaq. Dump it into Dwight and stand around.

I think its pretty obvious that the system he played in with dwight didn't allow for a lot of assists. Plus he's always been a scoring pg.

Man, Nelson is having a great season in terms of stats. Career-high in almost all things except FG% and PPG.

Looks like our PG wasnt that bad and the real problem was our center, because even Nash is having career-low in APG since Suns days with him.

Some people couldn't seem to grasp the concept that the system didn't allow for a lot of assists. A lot of us called it, said that we should see an uptick in assists, well the ones without their jameer hating goggles on.

Congrats jameer, well done. Most underrated pg in magic history. Not surprised that some haven't commented since they want him to fail.b
