    For point guards...only Emanuel Davis is worse. This list includes 41 point guards, and 29 different offenses and 29 different coaches. For total stats, only 5 point guards have more TOs per game, and that includes the top 3 assist leaders in the NBA: Andre Miller, Jason Kidd, and John Stockton.

    What does it all mean??????

    1. git ridy rudy
    2. trade mobley and move francis to sg
    3. give it to the big man
    4. stop going to games
    5. trade for bryce drew or avery johnson, who are 1 and 2 on the list...dammit, why did we get rid of them.
    6. Rice sucks otherwise Francis would have more assist
    7. Only pass it to Mobley
    8. It's the Marketing
    9. It's the damn Uniforms
    10. I'll never win a Francis argument again in the lunch hall.
    11. I don't care, TOs don't hurt his Fantasy Rating

    ...

    Please add your own expiring thoughts...

    12. Cato sucks. We should trade him or release him now.
    13. Willis' hands are too small.

    15. Anyone who points out a Francis or Dream fault is not a TRUE ROCKETS FAN

    btw: TMo, this is the last day of November. I think he's going to get one tonight, against the front page poll.

    16) Fran Blineburry is putting something in Steve's coffee
    17) Calvin Murphy needs to be brought back as our center
    18) Somehow, this can all be blamed on Hakeem leaving the Rockets
    19) Bullard being let go has placed a curse on the team until he makes his glorious return.

    23) Fastbreak more so he could have even more turnovers...

    24. The additional 26 shooting guards and 12 small forwards ahead of him are not playmakers.

    25. The fans aren't loud enough!

    26. No body will start the fastbreak...why won't the team leaders in rebounds start the fastbreak to help Francis get more assists?

    27. Hey, but out of 16 guards/SFs who score more than him there are 5 with worse Ast/TO ratios.

    28. Denial is a nice place to live.

    29. I want to stay in Compaq Center; it's where we won our titles.

    30. That people that seem suspicious of typical NBA positioning logic will use that logic when it allows them to make perverted pro-Mobley threads.

    31. That crispee buys into Rudy's bs theories about little teeny men attacking the basket and big tuff men hanging out on the perimeter.

    32. That Francis is damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. People that argue that Francis should be a hog instead of a pg are now arguing he should be a pg instead of a hog. I guess whatever floats your 2nd round pick to riches argument...

    33. That 21/8/6 from a 6'3" player with 2-3 years less experience than sauuuu sexy Mobley doesn't guarantee the respect that it should.

    34. That only Mobley has been injured this season.

    35. That the pass to assist ratio is probably a doozie.... perhaps 15-25%.

    36. That if Rice were to actually start shooting well now, we'll be looking at Moochie's asst/to ratio against Francis' within a few weeks as to a reason why Francis should be traded.

    37. That if Rice rebounded like Shandon, perhaps there'd be more fast break opportunities.

    38. That if the starting Center was Dream, there'd be a Center that could convert an easy assist within 5-12'.

    39. That if the Rockets hadn't acquired Mo Taylor after they knew he had problems with tendinitis in his achilles perhaps they would have had money to pay on Dream, or CWebb... or countless other people that act like big men (this just in: big men typically have a higher fg%age than little men, perhaps our doozie of a frontcourt is illustrated by Francis' asst/to ratio).

    40. If this bad stat were about Mobley, would crispee have posted it?

    41. If Mobley was Satan and Francis God, would crispee still prefer Mobley?

    42. Statistics are overrated
    43. Crispee is Mobley's agent

    44. When the Rockets win it all this year will any of this post really matter?

    45. That if a tree fell in a forest, and it fell on Steve, 1/3 of the BBS would blame Rudy's system for encouraging tree falling, 1/3 of the BBS would blame Francis for not being heady enough to get out of the way of the tree, and 1/3 of the BBS would pronounce it, "ThE SiCkEsT tReE fAlLiNG ever", and that they should make a poster out of it, and crispee would point out that Francis' tree falling to being hit by trees ratio is only 1:1, 23rd in the league among starting point guards, whereas Mobley's is 1:4, 4th among starting SG's.

    46. How dare anyone criticize Steve Francis... it's always someone else's fault. Of course, when Cuttino Mobley has 0 asst in a game, very few let that go unnoticed...

    47. Maybe the rest of the BBS should join Crispee and Achebe in liking to see Mobley and Francis in matching turtlenecks because it makes them "look better".

    [size=1/2] It's a joke, guys - probably a poor one [/size]

    48. It's the leagues fault. Houston should be in the East so he could play against Anthony Carter and Greg Anthony more. That would help.

    49. That this thread will last about as long as the losers of the Langhi bets changed Monikers did.*
