Guards who block, centers who pass, shooting guards who don’t shoot
This week on Over and Back, Jason and Rich look at unusual NBA skills, including guards who block, centers who pass, and shooting guards that don’t shoot.
On today’s show, Jason and Rich dive into some unusual NBA skills and statistical anomalies, including NBA guards who blocked the most shots, NBA centers who passed the most and NBA shooting guards that weren’t all that interested in shooting.
Players and topics discussed throughout the episode include:
- All-time blocking guards like Dwyane Wade, Michael Jordan, Ron Harper, Clyde Drexler and Dennis Johnson.
- The best passing centers of all time including, Nikola Jokic, Alvan Adams, Tom Boerwinkle, Joel Embiid, and DeMarcus Cousins.
- The least shoot-y shooting guards: Andre Roberson, T.R. Dunn, John Wetzel, Mike Barr & Matt Guokas.
- Additional discussions include who, if anyone, can ever match John Stockton’s assist record, where Jokic will land on the NBA’s all-time assists leaderboard, why Jordan & Wade are so much higher than all other guards in blocks, the bizarre career paths for Dunn & Roberson and so much more.
