The career of Yinka Dare is worth noting for one number.
His 100+ game, four season career contained that many assists. A leading soccer player gets that many in one season alone. Now to be fair…
- Dare played few minutes and almost always only played in blowouts.
- “Bigs” at the time didn’t have that many assists.
In comparison, Darko Milicic in his rookie season, same general role, same general drawbacks, had… seven assists.
