Steve Nash is a two time league MVP, and a wizard with the basketball. We always hear him described as “making his teammates better” wherever he goes and whomever he plays with. There was another great player that used to be described that way as well. Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson. And although Magic’s career was cut short, it must be a HUGE honor for Steve Nash to pass Magic on the All-time assists list. It can’t hurt to do it playing for Magic’s Lakers, and wearing the purple and gold either…
Lakers point guard Steve Nash was one of seven players in double figures for L.A., contributing 14 points and seven assists to pass former Lakers star Magic Johnson for fourth on the all-time NBA assist list (10,144).
QUOTABLE II: “It comes from hard work, preparation and understanding the game.”
— Mike D’Antoni on Nash (via NBA.com)
Congrats Steve! Must have been nice to get that much needed win against the C’s on top of the accolades last night.
