Magic didn't put up 20K? That was surprising...

Hypothetically, if he plays three more years he could average:
90 games
12.4 ppg
And that would put him at 19,997 points, so I guess it could happen. I think its unlikely that all that happens though. Three more years and at 90 Games a season plus the PPG.

He'll probably retire once his contract is over.

And yeah, I think Magic only had around 14K if I remember correctly.

Magic retired at age 31 because of HIV. He would have easily gotten 20,000 had he wore a rubber.

He could do it if he plays a couple of more years, something like 4 years at least.... he may get the 10000 assists, but i think he has around 16000 points, so i mean he will need another ~4000 and the last 2 seasons he averaged around 800-900 points per season, alongside Dwight/Kobe it could even be less maybe.... so yea, 4-5 more seasons would be a good guess.... but he is also like 38 now....

With other words its more likely he wont do it....

However.... a guy by the name of Lebron is on a very good pace to fix that though when its all said and done (including be the first non-PG in NBA history to be on the top 10 assist leaders list)...

Lebron is not on pace only to be the first to 20k points/10k assists, but also 30k++ points/10k assists.... which will be an even more impressive & unbreakable record... the 30k is more than a guarantee, hell he will get much more than even that when his career is over unless something happens to him... so i will leave the points out of this assessment..

Lebron has right now 4751 assists and he is 27 year old while averaging 7 apg.... Lets bring it back to 6 assists a game and give him 76-82 games per season and let him play until he is close to Steve Nash age, that will give him another 5000-5500 assists, he will have at least 10000 assists....

I seriously doubt Lebron will average any less than 6 apg... hell, when his scoring & scoring priorities starts to decrease with age he will only look to pass even more....

...and to become the first non-PG in NBA history to get in on the top 10 assist leaders list he will need only 2700 more assists..... so you could say thats a guarantee he WILL....
