A startling statistic

I found this statistic absolutely amazing. Steve Nash, twice named as the NBA's most valuable player, has averaged in double figures in assists for the last four years. If he keeps up that pace, in two years, at the age of 36, he will still have only half the number of assists recorded by John Stockton.

One other thing: With one more triple double, Jason Kidd will have 100, more than any other active player. Before you get too excited about that, however, remember that Oscar Robertson had 181 of them. And, if you think Robertson's record may be broken in your lifetime, consider the fact that in five seasons, LeBron James has only 17.
