Jason Kidd Moved Past Michael Jordan for 2nd All-Time in Steals

The Dallas Mavericks had two players reach a couple of notable milestones during their win over the Boston Celtics last night, with Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd moving up the historical ladder. From the Star-Telegram: “Nowitzki tallied 26 points and moved past Robert Parish and into the No. 20 spot on the NBA’s all-time scoring list as the Dallas Mavericks rolled over the Boston Celtics 89-73 before a sellout crowd of 20,364. With a blocked shot in the first quarter, Nowitzki also joined Cliff Robinson and Rasheed Wallace as the only players in NBA history with at least 1,000 career blocks and 1,000 career 3-pointers. Kidd, meanwhile, picked up three steals to move past Michael Jordan and into the No. 2 spot on the league’s all-time steals list behind John Stockton.”

    Uh… You ever heard of a guy called “Magic”? Dude was fairly good…

    This makes you realize how insane Stocktons numbers were. He’s 1000+ steals and 4000+ assists ahead of JKidd and Kidd has been playing FOREVER.

    In my opinion, Magic is the best PG ever, but JKidd is second.

    Only reason I put Kidd over Stockton is because I feel he’s done more with less over the course of his career. Stockton had the luxury of playing his whole career alongside the greatest scoring forward in the history of the NBA. I don’t think he could have taken those NJ Nets teams to back to back Finals. I also think Kidd is a more versatile defender, and just generally more fun to watch.

    Greatest and Best are different. Stockton was “greater” then Kidd. Kidd was “better” then Stockton. At least, imo.
