Jason Kidd is One of Greatest, yet Still Underrated: A Fan's Perspective

Scott Machado: A Point Guard With Vision, Even if He Needs Glasses

In December, dealing with dizziness, Machado went to see a neurologist and an ophthalmologist, both on the same day. To his relief, nothing appeared on the neurologist’s magnetic resonance imaging scan. But the eye doctor prescribed something new: glasses. Machado is mildly myopic. In order words, Machado, whose court vision has helped him become the nation’s leader with 10.0 assists a game, recently discovered he is nearsighted. "Wow, that’s actually pretty funny," Manhattan Coach Steve Masiello said. "The best point guard in the country couldn’t see. He sure doesn’t show it." http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/10/sports/ncaabasketball/iona-guard-scott-machado-passes-his-way-to-prominence.html?_r=1&hpw

Andre Miller vs. Raymond Felton: Who Is A Purer Point Guard?

Tom Ziller at SB Nation with a resurrection of a study of "pure point guard-ism" in the NBA. Put simply, he compares the number of assists produced by NBA point guards to the number of shots attempted. As we all know, Andre Miller is a PURE point guard. He can't shoot all that well, particularly from distance, and he's a great setup man (and the best alley-ooper in the league). He's gotta be right up there with Rondo and Kidd in pure point guard rating.. oh, what's that you say? He's middle-of-the-road in pure point rating, 53/100? Oh my. Well. What's that you also say? Reymond Felton is nearly identical in this pure point rating? Ohy my goodness, well won't the BEdgers be pleased!..maybe PS: For the record, I am not insisting that Felton is better than, a better fit than, or even a similar type of player to Miller. This is simply data to mull over. PPS: Cupcake consumption was not a part of this study. ed: bumped to front page
