Dirk Nowitzki: The Next 10,000 Point-10,000 Rebound Player

The Dallas MavericksDirk Nowitzki is poised to join the 34 other NBAers who are members of the 10,000 points-10,000 rebounds club. Dirk’s just 63 boards away, a number certainly within reach down the stretch of this season.

This is almost a list of the top rebounders in NBA history. Just about everyone who has 10,000 rebounds also has 10,000 points to go with them.

Only two players do not. Do you know who they are? These two rebound super-specialists?

The answer is way at the bottom in a third “mini” list.

Say, what about 10,000 points and 10,000 assists? Well, only five players have ever done that. Do you know who they are? Maybe you can get four. All five is an expert mark. Check the answer here along with video highlights of all five.

The Best Passing Big Men (Centers) in NBA History: Most Career Assists Per Game

Another Title For Wilt Chamberlain: He's The Best Passing Center Of All Time

Another Title For Wilt Chamberlain: He’s The Best Passing Center Of All Time

Active big men Marc Gasol, Joakim Noah and Al Horford rank amongst the very top centers in NBA history in recording assists, ranging from 2.7 – 3.0 APG.

Far away at the top sit three centers who managed the Herculean effort of more than four assists a game…Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell and Alvan Adams.

Yeah, centers don’t really pass that much. Those numbers all look small, but they’re a big feat. Only 54 big men ever had APG’s of 2.0 or more.

No, really. Check out my source, basketball-reference, to see who they are.
