Set By: John Stockton
In this age of isolation, one-on-one focused basketball, the assist has become something of a dying art. Stockton was nothing short of a master of passing the ball, leading the league in assists every year from 1987-88 through 1995-96. He had over 1,000 assists seven times in that stretch; you know how many players have had over 1,000 since? None. Jason Kidd is the closest active player to Stockton in terms of overall assists, but even he is still almost 4,000 short. This is one that may get broken someday, but it won't be by anyone you currently see in an NBA uniform.
