Sitting at 6,511 assists during his time with the Phoenix Suns, former 2 time MVP Steve Nash is only 7 assists away from breaking Kevin Johnson's all time Suns assist record.  The two were teammates on the Suns when Nash was drafted in 1996 and Johnson was in the final stages of his career.

"I have great memories from Phoenix, and playing alongside Steve is certainly one of them," said Johnson, now the mayor of Sacramento. "If I had to pick one person to break my record, I'd be honored to have Steve be that guy. He's been a great ambassador to the game both on and off the court and has a work ethic that is second to none. No doubt Steve will break more records as he continues his Hall of Fame career."
