5th all time to do it

Amazing consistency over his career, still playing a elite level today

He could pass Johnson and Jackson this season and get to 3rd.

He could get to number one in only 7 seasons. :D

Where's that one poster to tell us Nash is the reason the Lakers suck.

Awesome. Nash was my favorite non-Laker. He is the bright spot on this injury filled and troubled season.

I'm sure that hurts, but I find it amusing that he'll soon pass Magic while playing for the Lakers. It will be interesting to see the reaction to that.

Good job.

But since we are now ranking him All-Time, it took him 4 more seasons than Magic to reach 10,000....

and he played 3 more seasons than Oscar Robertson and Isaiah Thomas.

No way is he the 3rd best all time. Nash is not even top 4. He plays the worst defense out of any PG in the top 10.

1) Magic
2) Stockton
3) Oscar Robertson
4) Jason Kidd


Heck, I can make an argument than Kevin Johnson was better than Nash.

I would take Prime Gary Payton over Nash. Depends on the roster i guess.

Congrats Steve Nash! Always a joy to watch.

Amazingly consistent? In his first 8 seasons Nash never even averaged 9 assists once. Through those 8 seasons he was at 3, 339 assists. At the rate he was going back then he would be hovering around 7,000 assists today, as he averaged 6 assists per game in his first 8 season, or 7 assists if we only factor his years as a starter; since returning to PHX in 04 he's averaged 10.9 assists per. That's a striking gap between two 8 season stretches, and points once again to something highly questionable about Nash's career arc, particularly as the gap goes the wrong way (better at 30+ than he was in his twenties, and not by a small amount). Now, for the answer...

The D'antoni/post-handcheck era from 04/05 on dramatically changed Nash, both as far as media status and stat production. Everyone knows that stat inflation is rampant both from SSOL and the league-wide rule changes to favor perimeter players on offense. Nash is one of the poster boys for both.

And you didn't even mention how bad he is working with post players.

He's the perfect Pringles player. Hell, Antoni is the most pitiful Name Coach in the entire NBA, and might be up for worst in recent history.

grats to nash.

his longevity is a testament to how well he takes care of his health over his peers, instead of gambling, drinking, going to strip clubs, etc.
