It's not that hard to get assists when you're pretty much the only player on your team who can handle the rock (besides Bibby, who was just traded to Atlanta in the middle of last season) and you play 40+ minutes a game. Don't get me wrong, I thought JJ was brilliant in Phoenix and is a highly underrated player, but the Spurs aren't going to trade break up their quintessential trio.
