Honorable Mentions: Isiah Thomas and Oscar Robertson
5. Jason Kidd- With great vision, and a knack for finding the open man, J-Kidd is 2nd all time for assists; one of the most unselfish players of all time.
4. Steve Nash- By controlling tempo and keeping calm under pressure, Steve Nash was an old time point guard who brought a soccer mentality to basketball.
3. Bob Cousy- A pioneer of the game, he became the "Houdini of the Hardcourt"; if assists were judged as they are today, Cousy would be in the top 3 at least.
2. John Stockton- The all time leader in assists, the pick and roll pass was his pride and joy. A genius in the game, Karl Malone and John Stockton were the perfect pair for success. ( Unless you're MJ.)
1. Magic Johnson- His career average of 11.2 is still the best, and it looked good as well. Up there with DaVinci and other great artists, Magic revolutionized the game into something...magical.
