Steve Nash Is Fifth Player To Reach 10,000 Assists For His Career

8473385On Tuesday night, Steve Nash reached a milestone that very few have reached. Nash was the fifth player in NBA history to reach 10,000 assists.

Going into the Lakers’ game against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night, he had 9,995 career assists. Nash dished out his fifth assist in the game (and 10,000th for his career) to Antawn Jamison for a lay-up near the end of the first half (that would be a nice trivia question).

He’s got some good company in the 10,000 Assist club. John Stockton is obviously in an island by himself at the top but the three other guys aren’t too shabby, either. Jason Kidd is still adding on to his total as he is playing for the New York Knicks. Current Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson is third place and legendary Laker Earvin “Magic” Johnson holds the fourth spot.

If Nash stays healthy this season (which, you know, has not been a guarantee), he will likely pass Magic Johnson as he is 136 assists short of Magic’s 10,141 assists. Mark Jackson has 10,334 dimes so Nash (again, provided he stays healthy) can pass him at the end of the season. Jason Kidd is at 11,969 and counting; it’s debatable if Nash can catch him. No one is definitely going to catch John Stockton; he has 15,806 assists to his name.

Here are the reactions to Nash reaching 10,000.

And that’s what I like about Nash; he was still thinking about winning. He’s always been about that.

But, hey, not bad for someone who was picked in the middle of the first round in 1996. Not bad for someone who went to Santa Clara, not exactly the hotbed for basketball, to play college ball. And definitely not bad who started out as a third-string point guard in Phoenix.

10,000 assists is very, very impressive. Congratulations to Steve Nash for reaching 10,000.
