We thought this little piece of information was interesting considering Steve Nash's struggles this year, the Los Angeles Lakers' struggles, and Nash's leg injury earlier in the season. The Lakers' point guard has passed another former Lakers' star, Magic Johnson, on the all-time assists list.
Nash was able to do so in the third quarter of last night's win over the Boston Celtics. He is now in sole possession of fourth-place all-time. Next up on the list is Mark Jackson. It's possible that Nash can pass Jackson this season, but he will have a difficult time catching Jason Kidd and John Stockton at all.
Here are the top five in all-time assists in NBA history:
John Stockton - 15,806
Jason Kidd - 12,006
Mark Jackson - 10,334
Steve Nash - 10,144
Magic Johnson - 10,141
