Those tight shorts while playing for the Utah Jazz did not keep Stockton from dishing out the most assists in the history of the NBA. It took Stockton 19 seasons to set this mark while collecting 10.5 dimes per night. Stockton’s final NBA season came in 2002-03, so this record appears to be his for even longer. Chris Paul (9,653) and LeBron James (9,346) are the closest active players to Stockton’s mark, but they’re not that close.
