Ranking the NBA's Best Assists so Far in 2012

One facet that hasn't suffered in this congested NBA season is the amount of breathtaking assists that are made on a nightly basis. 

The 2012 NBA regular season is coming to an end in a little over a month. Yet, it's hard to remember a time when there were this many quality plays that include dazzling lobs and pinpoint passes. It seems like teamwork and unity are "cool" again.

So long Allen Iverson. Hello LeBron James.

The amount of selfish superstars in the NBA has dwindled. Players are realizing that the key to success on offense is ball movement and ball control. Not one-on-one, isolations every time down the court.

Teams that pass win. Why do you think the Sacramento Kings, despite having some young talent, lose all the time? They are filled with ball stoppers who don't know how to play team basketball.

Basketball is a beautiful sport to watch. The dunks. The fast breaks. And most of all, the passes.

So sit back, and enjoy the best assists so far in the 2012 NBA season. Or as it should also be known, the artwork of the NBA.
