I've noticed in conversations lately people have been referring to players as "stat stuffer" in a negative way. When I first heard the term used, back in the 80's, it was used to describe good all-around players. Guys like Alvin Robertson who would drop some numbers in every catagory, and later on Pippen and Robery Horry when he was with the Rockets. Now it would be a good way to describe AK-47 or Josh Smith. Obviously big name guys like Hakeem back in the day, and Robinson, and Jordan, or LBJ these days.
This was different than "stat padding" or as some would say "stat whore".
This is being a "stat whore" or "stat padder"
So what do you guys think? Is there a difference between a "stat stuffer" and a "stat whore" or "stat padder"?
