CP3 has now climbed up the all-time assists leader boards and overtook the great Oscar Robertson to take the sixth spot. He now has his eyes set on Lakers legend Magic Johnson who currently sits at the fifth spot with 10,141 assists.
The 6th player in @NBA history to reach 10,000 career assists!

Paul has been one of the best point guards in the league for quite some time now. This feat just further cements his case. He also continues to lead the league in all-time assists among all active players.
Throughout his time in the league, the 35-year old vet has been able to do his thing and push his squad to great heights. He's been on quite a journey in his 16 years in the league and more often than not, he's been able to leave a lasting impact with every franchise before moving forward to help another rebuilding team.
This season, he's been tasked to lead this young Phoenix squad with a young core of Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton. And, given their current standings, it's pretty safe to say that CP3's impact in the dessert has been quite remarkable.
Coming into Sunday's game against the defending champions, the Suns are now 27-13 and currently sit on the second spot of the Western Conference. They're a few games ahead of the Lakers and trail the conference-leading Utah Jazz by just a couple of games.
Take a bow, CP.
