kobe is probably at the top of my list too
But don't forget the all time numbers padder even if he's not in the league any more, Moses Malone.

LRB, you're sadly mistaking. The number one number-padder of all Time is Hakeem Oulajuan(i know i messed up his last name, but you get the picture).
Nash13, I've seen both in their primes and I'll stick with Moses. Never seen anyone who could pass to themselves better.

That's true. But He did that to get rebounds. Hakeem did everything.

<< Hakeem did everything. >>
But he was basically there whole team.i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif

The Dream never did pad his numbers as much as kobe and AI do now.

How exactly does these guys pad thier stats? Are they not suppose to do what it takes for their teams to win?
And how does Marbury pad his assists? People say he is selfish, but now say he pads his assists just because he's now among the league leaders making alot of people eat crow.

Wilt Chamberlain. Wilt would often intentionally miss his first field goal attempt in order to get an offensive rebound and THEN score the shot.

the idea of "padding assists" is ridiculous.
trying to pass to someone that is in scoring position? how is that a bad thing?
this year's stats padder - Juwan Howard!

A person pads their stats by intentionally "Make plays" just so they could get the recognition on paper.
Honestly Mavs Mann, if Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Gary Payton, or any other elite point guard were to get 41 points in a game, do you think they would have 11 assists?
Big Boy Laroux, I know you remember that Lakers game in Cleveland where Bryant was purposly tryin to pass the ball just to get an assist so he could have a triple double.

An assist padder will pass the ball even when its not a good idea to do so. Stephon Marbury might be going in for an open layup and instead decide to pass to Jake Voskuhl for the five foot jumper or Joe Johnson for the three. In fact, I usually see him do things like that several times a game. Those are fine shots in theory but probably not as high percentage as the original pre-pass shot... assist padding can also be called overpassing, and while it's not ALWAYS detrimental to the team, it can often prevent easy baskets and it is always obnoxious regardless of results. kobe and Marbury are the two worst offenders in the league...

now i ahte kobe, so i'll say he pads assists. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
however, if they truly do what you are saying (pass up an EASY bucket for a more difficult one), that is bad.

Hakeem a numbers padder?
Yeah, he was blocking shots and getting steals just for the hell of it.
01-20-2003, 09:14 PM
and having a wide open jumper with no one on you but passing it off to try to get your 10th dime
