Time for the last choice of passing relevancy, Chris Bosh. After the James-Wade DDD (drive, drop and dime) duo and the Chalmers-Arroyo rotation at the point comes Bosh averaging a pedestrian 1.9 assists per game. Chris isn't known as a passing big man by any means (career 2.1 APG) although his physical tools and involvement in the offense would suggest a higher distribution rate. For comparison, Pau Gasol and Boris Diaw are almost averaging 4 APG. Josh Smith is averaging 3.4 APG. Bosh's gleaming rays of sunshine:
- Most would quickly assume James and Wade at the helm of his attention but we now see Carlos Arroyo netting a slightly higher share than Wade. It's not a fluke in the system or mate favoritism, just results from the defensive schemes used on the Heat and the contrasting styles of the receiving players. Arroyo mostly nets buckets as a spot-up shooter when the opposing teams pick their poison whereas Wade seldom takes such shots and opts (correctly) for a drive into the paint.
