    Default Why didn't Jose go for 20 Assist against the Wolves?

    He had the ball with like 10 seconds left on Friday and had a chance to try and get the 20th assist instead he dribbled it out. If that doesn't prove that he is not in the game for personal glory I don't know what will.

    What do you guys think? Should he have tried to get that 20th assist?

    Go Raps Go!

    He wouldn't have gotten it anyways cause there's no way one of his teammates would have shot the ball. It's called bad sportsmanship.

    players intentionally going for personal landmarks always stirs me the wrong way..

    who was the dude from houston years ago who was intentionally trying to miss a free throw so he could get a quadruple double, and the nba took the rebound away from him? the name escapes me right now.... white dude..

    point is, i find it tasteless.. and detrimental to the game

    I remember Nate Robinson doing that while going for a triple double. Tony Allen too.

    Ricky Davis ( pretty sure) had a triple double rescinded because of an intentional miss.

    As for Jose going for 20 at the end of a game we are winning.....it will never happen, he is just not that type of guy.

    Ha ricky davis, dude bounced it off his own rim to get a rebound to get that tiple double, wonderful stuff.......

    But yah 10 seconds, ppl would get upset with u, u run out the clock and thats all, anyone takin a shot with 10 seconds left with a big lead in a game is juss being mean.....

    Bob Sura! He was the Rocket who had a rebound rescinded... but he was going for a triple double, not a quadruple double

    That's what I thought. He is the kind of player that we need to have as an example of sportsmanship.

    Does it matter if he got the 20th assist? A win is a win.

    I think it says a great deal about his character. So does leaving the rebound for Evans so Evans could get his career high in rebounds. Jose is a good teammate and a great influence for these young kids.

    kevin love does it almost, if not, every game and he got rewarded with his first all-star appearance and eventual massive amounts of dollar, dollar bills.

    Rondo does it too with assists. Normally I'd be up in arms about it, especially since I hate Rondo, but he's on my fantasy team so I need the stats.....

    He would have had three straight triple-double's had the league not taken away that rebounded.

    Good article on padding stats.

    was just stating the fact that he did not go for it when I have seen others have done such things while winning.
