haha, i was thinking about that when i made my post above and the reason i held up on promoting his assists is because even people like marbury and iverson throw a lot of assists but don't make their teams any better.
some guys will only pass the ball when they feel it's an obvious assist situation, and some guys will unselfishlessly pass the ball whenever it will lead to a higher percentage shot for someone, ie making the offense flow. but what a bonus it is to have a guy like the latter who also racks up the individual assists.
if marcus proves to be one of those guys during the course of the season, i'll be thrilled. i take summer league and preseason stats with a big grain of salt...
