LeBron James passes Cavs great on NBA all-time assist list
Another night and yet another career mark set by Lebron James.
On Monday night against the Washington Wizards James passed former Cavaliers player and head coach Lenny Wilkens for 13th on the NBA’s all-time assist list. James, needing just two assists to pass the revered Wilkens, came into the game with 7,210 career assists.
It’s nothing new for James as he continues to best NBA greats on various all-time lists at this point of his career but it is unique as he climbs over a former Cavalier great such as Wilkens.

As James always says: Strive For Greatness
