How privileged has Dirk Nowitzki been when it comes to point guards?
There are now five members of the 10,000-assist club. Nowitzki spent the majority of his career playing with two of them.
Nowitzki spent his first six seasons with Steve Nash, who has 10,005 assists after hitting the milestone in the Lakers’ loss last night. Nash dropped 797 regular-season dimes to Dirk, according to research done by ESPN Stats and Information.
The other members of the 10,000-assist club are Mark Jackson and Magic Johnson.
