To avoid any arguments I always go by per minute production when compiling an all-time list. In my points per minute story I showed how Michael Jordan has the highest points per minute than any player in NBA history; with .787 points per minute for his CAREER. #2 was Gervin at .780, #3 John Drew .701 and #4 Dominique Wilkins .700.
This story analyzes ever player to average at least seven assists per game for their career and who also dished it out for at least a .225 assists per minute clip for their career.
There were 17 guys in NBA history who have this unique combo and they are the greatest NBA assist men of all-time. Hint: Tim Hardaway (pictured) is one of them. Gary Payton (pictured) is not.
Do the math kids!
