Assists are funny things. What is an assist? Per Wikipedia: “An assist is attributed to a player who passes the ball to a teammate in a way that leads to a score by field goal.” Okay, that’s great. Jose Calderon picked up 18 of the little bastards. No problem, right? WRONG. Calderon was the benefactor of some “home-cooking” as the scorekeepers blatantly and maliciously misappropriated 2 assists that should not have been. You, the enlightened viewer, will be able to figure out which ones they are. But now I don’t know if I’ll ever watch the NBA again. The purity of the game I love has been forever tarnished in my eyes.
