Wow, LeBron James broke two milestones against the Warriors. He broke the 20,000 point barrier (youngest ever) but even more impressively the 5,000 assist barrier. That assist total is an incredible achievement for a non-PG.
Only 8 players, non-point guards, have gotten past that 5,000 assist threshold. A pair two guards with Michael Jordan (6th) and Clyde Drexler (2nd). Three small forwards with Pippen (1st), Havlicek (3rd) and Bird (4th). And three bigs with Kareem (5th, tops amongst bigs), K.Malone (7th) and Garnett (8th).
Scottie Pippen is the All-Time leader with 6,135 assists (just 10 more than Drexler and 21 ahead of Hondo, about 500 ahead of Bird in 4th) ... so think about it, LeBron should pass Pippen by sometime in the next two years (550-600 assists per year for LeBron) and become the All-Time leader in assists amongst non-point guards. That is an incredible achievement so early in one's career.
LeBron just turned 28 two-three weeks ago. LeBron is still only around the midway point in his career (if he can stay healthy).
And he is already past that 5,000 assist total. And looks set to become top man amongst non-PGs in two years. Incredible.
