LeBron James sets record for assists by a forward with behind-the-back pass to Kevin Love (video)

9 Comments

With his fifth assist of the game – this behind-the-back beauty to Kevin Love – LeBron James set the record for assists by a forward.

LeBron now has 6,136 career assists, one more than Scottie Pippen. The Cavaliers forward still falls behind 26 guards for career assists.

LeBron’s scoring might get most of the attention, but records like this are why he rates highly among the all-time greats. His all-around game – which also includes rebounding and, at times in his career, defending – is on another level.
