Los Angeles Lakers Point Guard Steve Nash has passed Magic Johnson on the all-time assists list and now ranks 4th in NBA history.
Nash now has 10,144 assists for his career, trailing only John Stockton (15,806), Jason Kidd (12,004 and counting) and Mark Jackson (10,334). Nash reached the mark in the 1,182nd game of his 17-season career.
“It’s crazy,” Nash said. “I definitely didn’t see that coming when I was 15 years old. What can I say? It’s almost embarrassing. Magic is an idol of mine. I grew up watching him and idolizing him and trying to emulate him. To do it here in L.A. at his franchise is definitely special.”
