NBA living legend Steve Nash entered the record books this week when he made his 10,000th assist in an NBA league game. Nash, who is currently playing as a point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers, is the oldest player on the team, but it is precisely his basketball proficiency, even after 16 years of professional play, that allowed him to make sports news headlines with his quintuple digit career statistic.
The assist was made in a game against the Houston Rockets. Nash started the game with 9,995 assists, and fans had high expectations that this game would be the one in which the he would achieve the milestone. Despite the assists made by Nash, the Lakers were unable to defeat the Rockets, in what sports news columnists describe as a poor season for the popular team.
Nash was born in South Africa and raised in Canada. After a great high school career, he competed in the NCAA playoffs several times with the Santa Clara Broncos. In the NBA, he started his career with the Phoenix Suns and had a brief stint with the Dallas Mavericks before returning to the Suns. He joined the Lakers this season.
Only four other players in the history of the NBA have accomplished such a staggering feat, and all of them are household names who had extremely long careers in basketball.
John Stockton The current record holder in career assists with 15,806, John Stockton is considered to be one of the greatest point guards in the history of the NBA. For all of his 19 seasons, he played exclusively for the Utah Jazz. Teamed with Karl Malone, the duo played in over 1,400 games together, another record setting achievement.
Jason Kidd – Another multiple record holder, Jason Kidd joined the New York Knicks in 2012 after playing for the Dallas Mavericks twice for a total of six years. Between those two turns with Mavericks, he played for the Phoenix Suns and the New Jersey Nets. Kidd has hit more than 100 triple-doubles, and in addition to his surpassing the 10,000 assist benchmark, has also scored more than 15,000 points and snagged over 7,000 rebounds.
Mark Jackson – Currently a coach for the Golden State Warriors, Mark Jackson is another point guard with an impressive record. Active as a player from 1987 to 2004, Jackson played for a number of teams throughout his career, most prominently the New York Knicks and the Indiana Pacers. In addition to surpassing 10,000 assists, Jackson is credited with popularizing the “tear drop shot,” in which the point guard releases the ball much earlier than usual during a layup. Jackson worked as a commentator before moving into his current role as a coach.
Magic Johnson – Magic Johnson is one of the most famous basketball players of all time. The Los Angeles Lakers selected Johnson as their first-round pick in the 1979 draft, and he played for the team exclusively throughout his career, which included three retirements from the game. (Only the last one seems to have stuck.) After making more than 10,000 assists, Johnson’s post-NBA career has seen him open a number of branded franchises in the Los Angeles area. In 1998, Johnson hosted a widely panned late night talk show, and in 2012, was part of a group of investors that purchased the Los Angeles Dodgers.
