    I just read about it. Supposedly, they never passed to one another. Bob -- any way to tell?

        other than thru videotape i couldn't tell. big dog typically passes the ball only 40% of the time he has it versus allen's 50% (last 5-6 years). big dog shoots the ball typically 42-43% of the time he has it and allen 35-36% of the time. allen handles the ball overall only about 8-10% more often than robinson, big dog with a poss fact of 1.07-10.8 touches/min versus allen's 1.20 touches/min...

        both players play major minutes and thus are assuredly on the court at the same time each night for between 20-30 minutes if not more. i can't believe for a second that a coach like karl would stand for any one player blatantly not passing the ball to another who typically handles the ball alot. in the past 5 years, other than the bucks PG and backup PG, allen and robinson have had the highest touches/min on the team (for players with at least 500 min)....

        now - who passes to who during crunch time is another story. i'm sure a bitch like this comes about because one or the other has been hogging the ball at the end of the game, and i'm guessing its allen because he's a guard, thus thus denying robinson chances at game winning shots - but this is only a guess. kinda like the pippen/kukoc faux pau when phil jackson defered to kukoc in lieu of pippen...
